Well, looks like Virginia requires a permit to collect insects and charges for that permit.

http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/permits/scientific-collection-permit-application.pdf

might be a bigger problem than we realized.

When they stop spraying landscapes, and paving the lands,  Iíll take that rule seriously.

Dear all,

I am interested in collecting data on any agencies in the U.S. that collect a fee for issuing collecting permits for terrestrial insects that are not protected or endangered. If so, how much do they charge? If you can please send me a value and link, I will collect the data and report back to the group.

California Department of Fish and Wildlife in now enforcing a scientific collecting permit ($420) for the collection of any terrestrial native insect (invertebrate), including those that are not protected (https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/Licensing/Scientific-Collecting<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.wildlife.ca.gov_Licensing_Scientific-2DCollecting&d=CwMFAg&c=C3yme8gMkxg_ihJNXS06ZyWk4EJm8LdrrvxQb-Je7sw&r=d3ymsRow_Cgoc6X7lEPpDw&m=vbK_Z19_86mZnZdkXqY4tto3qlo1J4DUiO2NOYNb55o&s=KJhzmTk97HQ_Z-7Uo5hR4ghz6iaF82Y-bofltvP2oxo&e=>).

I am not interested in those agencies that issue permits but do not charge a fee (I know there are lots of those).

I would like to find out if there is anything similar to what CDFW is applying elsewhere.

Please respond to me individually.

Many thanks,
