|just remembered: Sending any kind of termite or ant queen is illegal in the usa. Because if the queen got loose, it would re populate in an area it is not usually found in. that is introducing a pharol species, and the fines can be hefty [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] so be careful...[/QUOTE]|
Especially overseas, eeeshhh. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] One more thing, if you're shipping termites, for god's sake, put the log in a Plastic bag. They can eat cardboard. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Now if you'll excuse me I'm going out termite huntin'. If I get a few cultures going I'll trade a couple to you guys, and keep one or two for my frog "Arsenic". He's a cute lil' Auratus I picked up at a herp show last saturday.
Man, we have some serious phermoson termites down here in New Orleans. I really don't think you want me to ship them up north though. They tear through homes like crazy, and resist most pesticides. They where brought over from asia in crates or something like that and have just torn through the area. Very hard to control. But, hey, if you want to take some off of our hands, it would be my pleassure.
Thanks for the picture, and thanks to it, I realized Im sitting on the gold mine of all termites! (not literally) but those infest like every dead tree around here! I could supply you with 20 colonies! LOL, but, if what spec said is true......

could you send me the picture? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
Oh, and, i dont think it is illegal to send just regular termites. jsut illegal to send queens i think, and any eggs [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
The picture is an earlier link by joseph, the 5th of september I think, just scroll up,

Casper, sorry wrong type of termite.
Spec, Much like the importation of plants, it's only illegal if you get caught.
Monkeyman, cute frog name, what morph?
Ah, Is it illegal! If so it is always illegal, not only if you get caught. It is legal to send plants with the proper paperwork except for a specific list. I'll check, but I can see where it would be illegal. If so I, of course, am out of this.
I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.
I don't think it is a good idea to involve the forums in transactions that in any way could be illegal. These forums are a privilege that can be taken away or shut down because of illegal traffic. Remember, the Internet is PUBLIC! That means both law enforcement and other government agencies can see what you're doing too!
I would suggest someone finds out the legality of sending insects around before things blow up in our collective faces!
I feel it important to close this topic. Not only are we endangering the forums, but we could severly damage the enviroment if a pharol species of termite queen got loose... If you wish to continue this trade, please do so only in Private Message.
SirKristoff is a poopiehead
I think one thing needs to be corrected to Specs post. If you want to trade termites with the queen, please don't do it on PFT site even in PM's. It is illegal and we don't want to be part of it. Better yet, think about the wildlife where you live and don't bring in something that could damage your ecosystem. It's not worth it.
