Abstract—The act of pollination is the most important phenomena of plant by which sexual reproduction is possible. Medicinal plants are highly valuable. Therefore, it is important to study the pollination effects on medicinal plants. Scan sampling methods were carried out to explore the insect pollinator diversity from 7.00 h upto 15.00h. Visiting frequency of pollinator insects were observed by using focal sampling. The information together with flowering periods; environmental factors were used as the basic data to determine the effectiveness of insect pollination. Results showed that every species of insect pollination were from order Hymenoptera, Lepidoptera and coleoptera. Three species of Lepidoptera ( Pieriscanidia , Euremahecabesimulata and Catopsila pomona ) showed highest abundance. The highest abundance and species richness of pollinators occurred at 8.00-12.00 h. Total 43 species were observed during the study. Apidae and Lepidoptera are more abundant as insect pollinators due to high visited frequency. Therefore, this type of study can suggest strategies for attracting pollinator insect.
