    Anyone know the restrictions for sure...or a website?
    my sister got a kit from insect lore on butterflies last year... no permits whatsoever required... they are found throughout the USA

    Nonnative stick insects are prohibited in the USA as plant pathogens. SAme as the Giant Land Snails. They do show up for sale from time to time and are the result of eggs being mailed to people in the USA illegally. If you were going to try and be legit about it you would need an enclosure with doubler containment as well as a sealed room and the appropriate APHIS permits.
    This is why you do not tend to see them offered too often and usually as eggs when it happens. Depending on where you live in the USA there are native species of walking sticks that are legal to keep.

    Teachers are allowed to have them... So if I could get in contact with anyone that had em, I'm sure I could get them easily through my next door neighbors

    If you were to ship a bug(or amphibian,ect), use a deli container with holes in the lid, and then put that in a box witht he ccrumbled paper. Punch some small airholes in the box, and you are set.
    In S. Missouri, I saw some large stick insects, but I saw one in NE a coule of years ago. It was in the woods near a lake and was green and a couple of inches long. I was quite surprised.
