http://bugguide.net/node/view/1364136 I read the document and it said something about not a single invertebrate being allowed for propagation in CA, if my comprehension is correct. @Peter Clausen (bugs in cyberspace) has not mentioned it in his shop yet. If I'm correct, you aren't allowed to noncommercially breed or have dead insects, even if they are just ordinary ladybeetles or butterflies, without a permit. Also, what are laws on taking live insects from one part of CA and moving them to another part of CA as pets? One sentence: Is it over yet?
Hi, Frank Indiviglio here. I’m a herpetologist, zoologist, and book author, recently retired from a career spent at several zoos, aquariums, and museums, including over 20 years with the Bronx Zoo As a herpetologist and animal keeper, I’ve long been interested in the emerging amphibian disease commonly known as Chytrid or BD (Batrachochytrium dendrobatitis); please see my other articles, linked below. Believed to be responsible for the recent extinctions of over 200 frog species, this fungus remains a serious threat. In 2013, a related fungus, B. salamandrivorans, or BS, was identified. Since then, studies have revealed it to be as lethal as BD, and responsible for wiping-out the Netherlands wild Fire Salamanders. Once limited to Asian salamanders, some of which carry the fungus without becoming ill, BS seems to have found its way to Europe via the importation of Chinese Fire-Bellied Newts and other pet trade species. In order to stem the tide, the USA and the European Union are now considering import and sale regulations.

Just doing some further research on both federal and state laws for shipping different species of roaches. If anyone can offer help - I am just trying to verify what species are legal to ship to what states, etc. I am aware of Florida's laws, but that is about it. On the USDA website - I can't really find specifics (and don't want to assume they are treated the same as a cricket and are OK to ship). Are certain species considered agricultural pests, but others not ? Are there certain ones that are 100% legal to ship to every state (take out Hawaii) ? How about other states' laws specific to what can be shipped in ? Any specifics to the state websites and federal websites would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Scott
