Abstract: Nigeria with an estimated population of 105.3 million people occupies an area of 911.00km2 (1). The amalgamation of the Southern and Northern Protectorates in 1914 constituted a deliberate Divine plan to give the black race the largest single conglomeration of black Negro people in the world. Nigeria is watered by the rain laden wind which during a particular period of the year blows over the Atlantic ocean towards the northern direction. Because of this, the rainfall diminishes from the South to the North. To a large extent, the pattern of rainfall distribution has given rise to the following vegetation belts: The mangrove forest alongside the coast. The evergreen forest. The rain forest The deciduous forest Derived Guinea Savannah The Southern Guinea Savannah The Northern Guinea Savannah The Sudan Savannah The Sahel Savannah Nigeria therefore is a land from which grow various types of plants: Vegetables, creeping plants, shrubs, trees of various girths and heights. During the rainy reason, the vegetation displays its wares of different flowers, aroma and colours. The scents attract all kinds of insects.
