    Insects are in:

    Kingdom: Animalia

    Phylum: Arthropoda

    Subphylum: Hexapoda

    Class: Insecta

    This applies to all insects. If it is a particular kind of insect you are interested in, you would also have to include, below the Class category, Order, Family, Genus and species. You can find this if you Google the common name of the insect, then choose the Wikipedia listing, which is usually at the top or near the top of the list. At the right side of the Wikipedia page is a box containing the classification of the animal you Googled.
