Durian plants are visited by insects for various purposes such as helping pollination and collecting finding food. This research was focus on the distribution of insect species as an indicator to determine the age of the Durian Tree in the Pulo Senang Plantation, Tangse-Pidie. The purpose of this study was to determine the distribution of indicator insect species based on the age of Durian Tree. This research was conducted in several Durian tree plantations in Pulo Seunong, Pidie from November to October 2017. The method used in this research surveys with random purposive sampling technique. Data were analyzed quantitatively. The results showed that the distribution of insects species found in this study was distributed in 3 parts of durian, namely the root, the stem, and the leaf.
