 Things insect traders should know
There are some restrictions on the collection and trade of insects in Thailand that you should know about.
1.
Places you cannot collect 
It is illegal to collect any wildlife in either National Parks, Wildlife Sanctuaries or Non-hunting Areaswithout written permission from the Director-General of the Royal Forest Department. As insects wereincluded under the legal definition of wildlife in 1992 (The Wild Animal Reservation and Protection Act(1992)) insects cannot be collected in any of these areas. Those found collecting, or with insectsoriginating, from these areas will be prosecuted.
 
2.
Insects you cannot collect 
Thirteen insect taxa are listed (below) as protected in Thailand (Ministerial Regulation No. 4, 1995,under the Wild Animal Preservation and Protection Act 1992, Article 6). These include species of butterflies, moths and beetles. These protected species, whether alive or dead, or parts thereof, areillegal to collect or have in your possession

CITES 
Thailand is a signatory to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) of Wild Fauna and Flora which controls the export and import of endangered animal and plant specieslisted in the Appendices to the Convention. Prior to export of any insect (dead, alive or part thereof)listed in the CITES appendices (see table below) you must obtain permission from the CITES office(see below).
* spp. indicates all species within the genus are coveredPlease note that the CITES regulations cover not only species found in Thailand but also those that may be imported fromother countries.
4.
Laws of other nations 
In addition to the laws of Thailand other countries also have their own laws relating to the importation of insects. In some cases itis necessary to have documentation from Thailand certifying that the insects have been obtained in accordance with Thai lawsbefore the insects will be permitted entry into the country. Please ensure that you are aware of the import requirements of thecountry into which you plan to import any insect and if you require certification please contact the CITES office (below) who canprovide this certification.
