The investigation of turf insects in ten cities (including Hefei) of Anhui province was carried out during past four years. The results showed that 483 insect specimens from the areas could be divided into 79 species belonging to 61 genera from 27 families within 9 orders. The main pests included Scarabaeidae, Noctmidae, Pyralidae, of which Sidemia deprovata could eat up host plants in short time because of its large number and wide-ranging distribution. Being Loxostege, one of the most serious pests, could not be neglected in Autumn, too.
