Number 1 rule of feeding animals with live prey:
Watch what happens!
Never leave prey items that can injure your animals inside the terrarium more than a few hours and even then, still monitor what's going on frequently.
Finally get a roach colony, crickets suck in so many ways...
Sorry for your loss.
I hate Crickets as well. Their vile,nasty, stinky little creatures and I refuse to feed them to anything I keep. I have had crickets kill amphibians, tarantulas and scorpions...never again. Roaches are the way to go.I'm hesitent to believe a cricket killed your non-molting scorpion. But regardless, crickets are evil. I hate them. I would get a roach colony. Or buy a colony for your lps, so they will have them available for you. I hate crickets. :evil:
