So i have been doing some gardening and i came across a few beetle larvae that seem like they could make a nice meal for my asian forest scorpion. Any reason not to use them?
Yeah I'm not trying to be cheap lol, just wanted to know if they could be used as a treat for my scorpion. I will refrain from using them.The best you could do (like if you're really really cheap lol) is let them mature, breed them, rinse & repeat, and then maybe trust the 5th generation to be safe. And that would be way more work than I would be willing to do for free feeders.
I have heard of folks using this method but I've never tried it.
At this point, do you even know what you've got?
I fed 1 WC cricket to a CB tarantula. She got nematodes and dies. So no, stay away from WC prey items.I fed 1 WC bottle fly to a WC house spider and the spider died within hours. Unrelated species but I never use pesticides around my house. And the fly was very much alive when I fed it. I had been keeping the spider temporarily to observe it and was planning to release it.
