With a few exceptions, all scarab beetles require USDA permits for importation, interstate movement, and certain intrastate movement, such as when the intrastate movement involves scarabs or their descendants that originally came from outside the state. I hold valid PPQ 526 permits for a few scarab species. For example, I have the permit to acquire Dynastes granti, D. tityus, Megasoma punctulatus, and M. sleeperi from anywhere in the Continental US. The permits for exotic species stipulate the designation and inspection of a containment facility. Importation of any animal also requires a FWS permit, so research thoroughly to avoid confiscation at customs.
