Insect is an omnipresent and a superficial animal in the kingdom and found in the earth from 400 million years onwards. Up-to-date, one million of insects are identified with different orders. Today, augmented research on proteomics, genomics, physiology and biochemistry, molecular taxonomy and gut symbiosis of insect emphasizing the importance of Insect Science. Scientists and farmers are focusing their research and rearing interest on beneficial insect such as Silkworm and honeybee for earning money through silk and honey production respectively. In addition, silkworm pupa and black fly larvae used as food supplements to human and fisheries respectively. Development of non-radiation based mutant silkworm for higher yield of silk is shows more interest among the sericulture scientist . Interestingly, the insect derived proteins have anti-bacterial, viral and fungal which are have crucial applications in drug industry [2,3]. Insect gut protease have diverse applications in industries such as detergent, insecticidal agent, chemical and food, and pharmaceutical [4,5]. Apart from insect derived proteins, insect gut microbes play a major role a significant role on host fitness and their own growth and multiplication . Now the recent tread is turning on insect gut microbes due to their versatile characteristics, the insect gut microbes are utilized for enzyme, food supplements, pro-biotic and biofuel production, degradation of pollutants, etc. .
