The Troia National Park area is one of the places where field farming is carried out and the usage of agricultural inputs is high. The preservation of this area, which is also in the ancient city, is possible with sustainable agricultural activities. In this study, the population changes of sucking insect species such as Empoasca decipiens Paoli, Thrips tabaci Lindemann, Aphis gossypii Glover, Bemisia tabaci Gennadius, and Tetranychus urticae Koch were determined in cotton production areas which are attractive for phytophagous species. In addition, population density of Chrysoperla carnea Stephens, Coccinella septempunctata L. and Scolothrips longicornis Priesner were determined from the predatory insects which are effective on phytophagous species. The presence of C. carnea, which has the highest population density, continued until the end of the season, it has two peaks in July and August. These pest species are polyphagous and continue to be affected by changing the product pattern in the field. The effects of these polyphagous species will continue with the possible change in product design. In recent years, intensive application of pesticides against invasive alien Tuta absoluta in tomato gardens that caused an increase in the population of some of these species.
