image.jpeg image.jpeg Well, he emerged again.. Now I'm 90% sure he is premolt. I am giving him more humidity by pouring a small cup of water in the corner opposite his burrow every other day.

I have two beatles as a cleanup crew. I wouldn't want them to disturb him as he molts, or cause extra stress and then him molting poorly :( anybody know if they will be an issue pre or post molt? Should I temporarily remove them?
Thanks for the replies!

He should be fine molting with the beetles in there, but if you're worried it doesn't do any harm to remove them. Better safe than sorry!

I would say better safe than sorry and remove them if you are suspecting a molt is upcoming. The last thing you would want is for them to walk over the Scorpion while it is in the middle of the molt.
