At the end of study, 127 insect species belonging to 37 families from 6 ordo were determined. In addition, 14 insects could be identified at genus level and 1 insect at subfamily level. It was determined that 80 species were phytophagous and 35 species were entomophagous of these insects. Also, 12 ant species were found in the study. In the literature, no information has been found on the fact that most phytophagous species obtained are grape pests.
