§ 3558. Insects Which May Be Imported or Shipped Into or Within California Without a Permit.
Section 6305 of the Food and Agricultural Code requires persons to obtain a permit from the director or the United States Department of Agriculture to import into, or ship or transport within, the state live insects except for certain exemptions. One of these exemptions is for beneficial or useful insects of common occurrence in the state. To identify which beneficial insects do not require a permit to import into, or ship or transport within, the state the following lists are provided. However, as with all insect shipments they shall be rejected when the insects are moved in conjunction with host plants or other host organisms when such hosts would normally be rejected if moving independently.
