Abstract: Ten mushrooms species collected within the premises of University of Ibadan were examined for infestation of various insect and fungal pests .Insects belonging to the orders; Coleoptera, Hymenoptera, Diptera, and Collembolla were encountered both at the larval and adult stages of life on the collected mushroom samples. Infestation by the order Coleoptera (adult beetle) on Pleurotus squar-rosulus was found to be higher in incidence, with a total number of 17 species which were found at the adult stage of life; but the larva stage were found on Lycoperdon gigantum . Fungal species identified to be Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus terreus, Fusarium redolens, Trichoderma viride, Rhizopus stolonifer and Mucor piriformis were found to be associated with several species of mushrooms.
