Wings help the insects to find potential mates and to escape from predators (Wotton, 1992).Order Dictyoptera, Thysanura, Dermaptera and Embioptera were the orders with least number of species which are either wingless or possess wings but are not actively flying insects.
Among these were 41 Coleoptera (including 4 Mycotrupes (Coleoptera: Geotrupidae), 3 Tenebrionids, 1 Cerambycid, 4 Phyllophaga (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) larvae and 1 Anomala (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) larva) 1 Cetoniid larva, 6 Lepisma saccharina (L.) (Thysanura: Lepismatidae), and 3 burrowing roaches.

La clase Insecta fue la mas representativa con 14 ordenes (Blattodea, Coleoptera, Dermaptera, Diplura, Diptera, Hemiptera, Homoptera, Hymenoptera, Mantodea, Mecoptera, Orthoptera, Psocoptera, Thysanura y Thysanoptera), seguida por la Clase Collembola, que tuvo representacion de sus cuatro ordenes Poduromorpha, Entomobryomorpha, Symphypleona y Neelipleona, abarcando nuevos registros de 6 familias (9 nuevas especies) para Colombia (Penaranda 2005).
