    Default shipping laws?

    I was just wondering if there was much trouble shipping bees across state lines. Do you have to make really large detours to avoid certain states?

    You have to have a health certificate to cross into Florida. They have the fire ant inspection in California. Some state are more annoying than others but I don't detour around any. I do pace myself to avoid certain scales, (Seymore IN). New Mexico doesn't cooperate with IFTA (international fuel tax agreement) so we have to pay $60 to pass through. Last I knew AL didn't allow bees to be brought in.

    yeah, Alabama says no bees on the combs. I'm located in the Ms/AL/TN corner. I can go across the line and get swarms but they will not let me go across the line to buy NUCs. well not legally.
