    When did they started asking to see boots? I have never been asked for that before and went as late as '11.

    Some guys get the treatment on the way back into the US. Fear about bugs on your boots.

    I have seen pads in trays of disinfectant that you have to walk through.

    We came thru Atlanta last week, after customs checked the guns and cleared them we thought we could by pass Agriculture, no way, befor you leave the area there are three custom officers that want to see the Ag. dept. form, if not, you Are directed to the Ag group,your luggage is scanned and you boots are inspected and hand sprayed, then bagged. They pointed out seeds and sand remaining on the boots. Asked if we h ad any hides, or fresh food from SA. Really I can not think you can bypass the area without boot inspection, we were given a form to give to customs to prove they had been sprayed.
