Is it harmful that feeder crickets are laying eggs in my scorpion's enclosure? If so, how can I prevent this from happening?
how do you identify the mails?You didn't say what kind of scoprion you have but if it's a forest species and the substrate is kept moist then cricket eggs have a chance at hatching but in a dry desert setup, they will likely dessicate and never hatch. I would say cut the butt (remove the ovipositor) or just take them out when you see them stabbing the dirt. The only other options I know of to prekill the cricket or only feed males.
