Union hygiene protocols have prevented the propagation of this vermin.
Part of the log book of every Union registered ship (military and civilian) is the Bio Form declaration and State of Ship hygiene report .
The report must be up to date and list every life form aboard (down to microbes) Private ship operators that arrive from non Union destinations are usually quarantined, until Space Port Authority could check on the state of hygiene.
Nasty Buggers may be traded, bought and sold, but a Harmful Bio Form trading license must be obtained.
