    Better be sure its legal. I'm sure there are severe restrictions on insects, esp. if you live in CA or one of the Ag states.

    no, its legal, as long as you dont release them into the wild... you're required to kill almost all the eggs, I think...

    but that is for the australlian form... there would be no problem getting pond boys, its native to the US anyways.

    Besides, a local teacher I know/met at the library wants em, and teachers are allowed to have em... Just think of it as me getting them for her [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] (I will be giving her some)

    Hmmm...I never thought of shipping insects How do you ship them? I don`t feel like shipping bugs though.

    Btw. What do stick insects eat anyhow?

    stick insects eat blackberry (bramble) mostly, but they will accept rose sometimes, and the australlian form loves eucalyptus (I have 3 eucalyptus trees in me backyard)

    My guess is similar to plants. Have you observed a petstore unpacking crickets before? You'd need a box, and in that box I would pack newspaper and a smaller cardboard box with the sticks inside. For oxygen, perhaps you could have one side of the inside box cut open and patched with wire screening...which would also allow the sticks to climb up and rest...instead of tumbling around and most likely dieing of stress.

    Not to sure if native helps anything. Since you don't have them where you live(I bet you do...but are missing them)...I heard you are required to have a permit to ship butterfly caterpillars...like mourning cloaks and painted ladys...which are all over the place.


    Anyone know the restrictions for sure...or a website?
