Yes indeed. It reminds me of the infestation of the Emerald Ash Borer in Connecticut back in 2012. Things like these will only make things for the hobby more difficult in my opinion. I wonder which beetle will be introduced in the state next. :o

Although I agree that in some cases, US insect laws may be ridiculous, often they're spot on. In the aquarium hobby, there's a saying: "never release fish". If you don't want them, give them to a pet shop, or worst case scenario, destroy them. This is done to prevent the introduction of invasive species into the wild. In a hobby like this, I would argue people need to be a magnitude more careful with insects, considering the amount of damage they already cause. Be responsible with your insects!
