About U.S.D.A. Permits

Please be advised that transporting any living insect (including viable ova, larvae, or pupae) across a state line or importation into the U.S. from abroad requires a permit from the USDA, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Plant Protection and Quarantine. Shipping without a permit is a violation of the Federal Plant Pest Act of 1957. For more information, go to the following USDA web page:
