Advertisement Rhis was the best place that I could find so hope that this is right, if not could one of the mods move it? Thanks! I want to get some more rotten hardwood substrate for my beetle larvae since my male is ready to emerge and my female’s been waiting for quite some time now. However, most trees in my area are softwood/pine. I was thinking of getting some substrate shipped to me but I am extremely wary to follow all regulations that the government has set in place so Iw ant to know if getting rotten wood shipepd from another state is legal or not.
