Advertisement Someone is asking how to deworm a scorpion without killing it. I know that horse hair worms can be extracted from the host by submerging the host under water. Certain scorpion species can live for hours and even days under water and can be revived after losing consciousness simply by drying them out (like a centipede). Depending on the species of scorpion and the species of nematode this might be a viable way to deworm invertebrates. I am aware that mantis keepers already use this technique on horse hair worms. What are your thoughts?
