I got word of a good scopion hunting trail from a pet-shop employee. Supposively they are as common as mosquitos in this area...but I'm still managing to worry myself, due to the several unsuccesful trips in the past few weeks. (Last trip was nearly fatal, ended up stepping just a couple feet away from a fat 5 foot eastern diamond back rattlesnake) My question is, are there any tricks for scorpion hunting? This area is far-ish so coming back often will not be very plausable. I need as many scorps as I can pick up in one couple hour trip. As far as collecting containers go, do I need a container for every C. gracilis/C. hentzi I catch? Or will several scorps in one container not eat eachother? C. gracilis is a bark sorpion....so, where would one be more prone to finding one? In a standing tree, under the bark, on a dead standing tree, or on a dead fallen tree? Or under a rock? Under leaf litter? Or maybe burrows? Does temperature make a difference? I'm going this weekend. (Highs for this saturday are 81, mostly sunny, Sunday no clouds with 85 as highs, humidity 60+ for both days) Would it be better in the morning? Afternoons? Evenings? I'm not going at night/or when it gets dark. Thanks.
