Actual laws in Tennessee and Florida

Recommended Posts

Can anyone provide a link to the actual laws governing cockroach ownership in Tennessee and Florida? What government agency prohibits it? I am putting together a powerpoint presentation on the cockroach hobby for my turtle club and would like to include that information. Also, if you have a link to the actual law regarding the legality of shipping cockroaches through the mail, I'd like to include that. If anyone knows of other states that have restrictions and knows where to find the law, let me know. Thanks!

Oddly enough you absolutely can send honey bees in the mail. It's very common for small time apairists to get their starter colonies through the usps. I've never seen a permit issued on their packages.

Here is a useful article. Not exactly the best info for a usda website but it's a start.
