Legal to bring beetles across the country?

Recommended Posts

I am taking a trip in June to Arizona for a week and I wanted to know if it was legal to bring back live insects on the plane from AZ to Connecticut?

Not sure, but I think most people just ship them to themselves.

Why wouldn't I :)! I know I'm out of season for them because they usually fly in August but I'm definetly gonna look for any larvae and snatch any adults that may have emerged early. There's also Hemiphileurus illatus, Xyloryctes thestalus and Lucanus mazama that are in season in June! I'm looking for, rhino beetles, stag beetles, sand roaches, dung beetles and any other cool insects!
