    Does anybody know if a U-Haul truck for household moving needs to stop at the agricultural station before leaving Florida into Georgia?
    I am moving up to Pennsylvania. and want to take my houseplants with us. I don't want to have to throw them out because of this inspection station.

    Good question! I know that if you go from California to Arizona your asked if you have any plants. I know why they do that here, its because of the pollen that some plants put out.

    I thought it was due to the disease that a plant may have and they don't want plant life to die in other parts

    That also could be a factor. Here in Arizona we have plants that are against the law to grow because of the pollen it produces. Like the olive tree.

    Great!!! :biggrin: I want to take some of my plants as well to North Carolina from Arizona. Do you think they'll make it in back of a moving truck?

    we did plants in the back of a moving truck for 3 days. Watered them well and hoped for the best. Lost one and the other dozen were a bit sad but after a couple of months did fine.

    We aren't going to worry about the agricultural inspection station.
    We will have a trailer and uhaul said we don't have to stop there.

    Every time we'd go through it was referred to the "bug station", going in to California that is.

    I hope we don't have to get rid of the houseplants.

    I've lived both east and west. In the case of Arizona, it's any plant that can produce pollen. Arizona is a lot of people that moved there to get away from their allergies. In the case of Florida, it's a matter of Citrus with bugs coming out of the state. I once moved out of Florida and they stopped me. They said house plants were fine but did I have any citrus? I said, just this orange in my lunch box to eat with my lunch. They made me throw it away.

    We aren't taking any citrus out of Florida. at all. I will get my lemons at the grocery store!
    I received an email from the Agricultural place and they send there is no state regulations on houseplants leaving the state! Horray:tongue:

    Update:
    We had to pull into the agricultural station and had no problems whatsoever.
    They waved us on.

    What to expect when you go thru an agricultural checkpoint? do they check your license/ are they police officers or just agricultural officers? They do not care too much about plants leaving the state, like container plants that do not bear fruit?

    The agriculter inspection stations stop ALL plants from coming into the state. All plants, and all veggies and fruits. The idea is to stop all disease from infiltrating their plants. No, they are not police officers, but they can make an arrest if you give them problems. They are with the department of agriculture and are, in effect, law enforcement officers.
