Abstract : The survey was under taken to investigate the aquatic Hemipteran biodiversity of Ranchi, Jharkhand, during September, 2019-February, 2020. The aquatic insects were collected by using net from the study area. The aquatic Hemipteran community was represented by seven families. The highest population of order aquatic Hemiptera was recorded during six month. Aquatic Hemiptera holds an important place in the ecology of freshwater and non freshwater ecosystem. They are important food for many organism including fish, amphibian and other animals. The chemical properties and the distinct taxa found in the water suggest that the water bodies are polluted and may be dangerous to the health of people around the reservoir.
