Best Answer

Insects are not a species. Insects are are a class of invertebrates within the arthropod phylum. That is like asking if mammals are the most numerous species. Your question needs to be refined. Are you asking if insects are the most numerous class of animal? Most numerous species of living thing? Or perhaps you are thinking of a specific species such as monarch butterfly (Danaus

plexippus

).
