    I feed my scoprions ckickets occasionaly, but their main diet consists of mealworms. The reason for this is that it takes very little time or space to harvest them yourself, basicaly providing you with a free source of food. What is your favorite food source?

    I use only crickets, but I have a 10g tank devoted to just keeping them.

    I usually feed crickets as well. I will sometimes feed mine a big katydid or grasshopper. A couple of months ago when all those brown beetles were flying around the porch light, I got to feeding them to my emperors. Those emps would crush the beetle with their chela which was cool to watch since the beetles exoskeleton is so hard.

    I feed my cadre of scorpions and Widows a mixture of crickets and mealworms, both a most nutrious protein diet. Also, will drop in june bugs once they're in season and are attracted to the porch lights too. Miscellaneous creature from the garden are also occassionally given the arachnids, but that is always a judgement call because you don't want the feed your captives something poorly nourished or malnourished or poisoned.

But if this is true and i should stop feeding him what he's use too , i will , can i get a little feedback on what you guys would do ? :?

    i feed mine cheap dog biscuit (the complete meal stuff) and some cucumber or whatever

    edit - thats what i feed my crickets, the scorpions get crickets and if i find something extra juicy in the garden, they get that.

    When did you get it? I think 4 crickets per month is enough! In the desert, they don't eat a lot. Yours will become fat soon if you feed it like this. I feed all my scorpions with crickets and sometimes grasshoppers.

    I feed mine Fluker's orange cube and Fluker's calcium fortified cricket quencher. My crix and scorps both seem healthy so it must be doing the trick. :clap:
