After reading about the New Jersey ant together, I realized that I would like to do a "Connecticut Bug Together" with some local insect keepers. The only two antkeepers in CT that I know of are ctantkeeper & hemightnotbegiant (?), so I would appreciate it if (if this starts) some people from neighboring states visit
First, I want to know if something like this would be possible. Would anyone want to do something like this in potentially tick-ridden forest conditions? I often find the most species in the same areas that I find ticks (mostly dog ticks, thankfully).
Second, would getting together to collect insects be legal without a permit within the same state?
I would be more than happy to provide collection equipment (nets, tubes, small containers, setups).
