Abstract: Prunus persica (Peach) has several medicinal, nuritive properties and holds a strong economic value. For fruit production peach is mainly dependent on insect pollinators. So, study on diversity, distribution and relative abundance of insect pollinators is important for conservation of pollinators and pollination and the present study was conducted on insect pollinators of Prunus persica from different localities of Himachal Pradesh viz. Jatoli (1464m), Kandaghat (1425m), Mashobra (2146m), Summer Hill (2100m), Jaladi (508m), Hamirpur (786m), Gheori (559m), Bathra (503m), Bilaspur (673m) and Rajgarh (1555m). A total of 29 species of insect pollinators belonging to 4 orders and 11 families of class insecta were collected, of these, 8 belongs to Hymenoptera, 14 to Diptera, 6 to Lepidoptera and 1 to Coleoptera. It was observed that Kandaghat (51.32%), Jaladi (51.42%), Hamirpur (64.70%), Gheori (61.92%), Bathra (69.68%), Rajgarh (52.96%) were dominated by Hymenoptera, where as Jatoli (49.54%), Mashobra (54.19%), Summer Hill (51.17%), Bilaspur (53.30%) were dominated by Diptera.
