It should take about 7 days before they molt to 2I. You really can't do much except to try and feed the female and keep yourself from stressing her out.

Hello,

Why you dont separate them??
Put them into a box with some toilettpaper. keep the moisture high!
That works fine!

They should only be removed from their mother after their first molt.

They depend upon her for food etc.

You spell baby in a humorous manner.

I would seperate them from the mother if this continues. I believe Telow has a stickied thread on VenomList about caring for first instar scorps.

Hello,

There is no problem to separate them in first instar.
They molt without problems!
I made that 3 times now. 2 times with Buthus and one time with Centruroides. And all survived!
So I think they dont need their mother!

After the first moult @ I2 if left with the mom, just drop in some med crix (I used super worms too) the mom would chomp and crush the prey and leave pieces that the babies fed on (on occasions I'd drop in son pinheads too) The ones of I2 that I separated this is what I do / have done, is take pin head crix and chop off the back legs (so they don't jump) and remove some of the front legs and then drop in 1 per scorpling per deli cup every two days. (I separate out 1 scorpling per cup / enclosure) If the scorplings are really tiny, I'd just crush the pin head crix behind the head and leave it for them.

If I could only get medium to large crix or meal worms I'd chop them up (basically pre-kill) and leave them in the center of the cup for them to find and easier removal if they didn't finish them.

I would set up a deli cup for each scorpling in this manner: 1/2 full of moist coco fiber, lightly packed, then I'd push down a couple of holes with a chop stick around the edge (to make hides for them). I would also put a bottled water / soda bottle cap in for water. I placed the deli cups on the shelf with a couple of 50 watt IR lamps facing them and cover the whole stack of cups with a Towel. I had a temperature gauge in there to let me know the ambient temp of the area, and I'd keep it in the high 80s - low 90s °F. Every 2 days I'd take out old crix parts, change the water and dribble some water on the sub, to keep it moist.

Do you have deli cups? I bought mine here at this link for a good price.

If these are the same ones you posted about at the beginning of July, they should be at instar 2, that would be why they are leaving the mom.

Below is a pic of mine from my first birth way back in Feb, do yours' look like them? they were still a little whitish but still 2nd instar. And I seperated them soon after this pic.

The 'sheddings' looks like stringy egg whites left on the moms back.

I think the removal advice sounds the best. It will be interesting if they survive once removed considering they were being eaten. If they are leaving mums back, it would appear the young are not deriving what they need from mum and so are seeking it out.
