Taking Crawlers into Canada

8 posts in this topic

Question for those that know - do crawlers have to be completely devoid of any soil or peat, as long as they are on newspaper? We try to clean them up as good as possible, and pack them on newspaper when customers ask. But I am just curious how picky the border patrol is. Thanks!

No soil. No peat. No problems at border.

For the record, questions referring to bringing anything into Canada need to be specific to individual Provinces. Just like many States have different laws and regulations, Provinces have their own. So research the Province that you're going to and where you're entering for the answer.

All that plus questions on the world wide web of misinformation won't get you the benefit of doubt at any border, Canadian or American. smile

Very good point! I was refering to the province of Ontario, but only because I assumed (and we know what happens then)that was the province he was asking about. Going to the HSOforum of the MNR for the particular province you are seeking information about is the smartest way to learn what is expected.

I don't remember ever having them actually check the crawlers. When we've told them they're either in bedding or newspaper they've been good with that. That is at the Pembina crossing.

We got checked once at the Warroad port of entry, the crawlers were in paper bedding, the officer remarked that the bedding was too dark, after that we make sure to wash the crawlers in two seperate water's and put them in clean paper bedding, but haven't been checked since.

We were asked if they were in dirt or bedding, but never checked. First time I had taken any in tho.
