  1. I used to have lobsters myself, I quickly got rid of them after one night one of them fell from the ceiling onto my face lol
  2. I've generally heard of them living for 1-2 years sometimes 3
  3. I just got a message back from my states entomologist and he said this: you would only need a permit if importing the species from outside the U.S. Domestic movement does not require a permit. So it looks like i'll be getting some hissers in the future if anyone wants to tell anyone that YES you can get hissers here in TN you are more than welcome to.
  4. I wonder if TWRA would be any help to this? I am gonna email them and see what they say
  5. So this means I can get hissers in TN? I still am a little hesitant about buying some even after receiving this email
  6. I just received this email from aphis: The USDA has dropped the permit requirement for domestic interstate movement of the Madagascar hissing cockroach, Gromphadorhina portentosa. Import would require a permit. You should check with Tennessee officials to see if they have any requirements. I'm not gonna import them as they are already here in the U.S.
  7. Hmm? after researching more about this I read this: " The USDA does not require any special permits to ship and/or receive Hissing Cockroaches" so does that mean I would be fine to go ahead and order some hissers? I am gonna wait until I hear something from my state department of agriculture
  8. Ok, I was just curious what could happen if I tried to buy them. I sent an email to my depart of agriculture and she said she would let our state entomologist know and to look into this
  9. I know this post is pretty old, but lets say, I go and buy some hissers the worst that could happen is the seller wouldn't ship them to my location right?
  10. I emailed my local Agriculture department about this and I am waiting on a reply
  11. It does thanks! I should be getting the roaches thursday I will try and get some pictures up
  12. That's what I don't understand we don't have the same climate in TN compared to FL. I can definitely understand why almost anything exotic is illegal in FL. I guess its a "better safe than sorry" kind of thing for TN
  13. Thanks, the reason I asked this, I was wondering about getting me some hissers. Since I think they are very interesting but I kept seeing nobody would ship to TN
