Thank you to Donna Hill (member #5, Canada) for providing information regarding some of our British Columbia, Canada, regulations. Donna is an Environmental Coordinator at this time, and "in the know". It is likely that some of the B.C. policies will be similar to those in other areas. Some of these regulations may come as a surprise to you (they did to me!).
BC Ministry of Agriculture requires a permit to import/keep/propogate
waxworms (a serious beehive pest) and walking sticks-yes, the
very kind that the Vancouver Aquarium has been giving out free!
The same kind that feeds on blackberry leaves which also grow
so well here and are an introduced species themselves.
Thanks to Eric Watanabe, (member #19 USA) for this one.
Stick insects require a permit in California.
