Advertisement From Ken the Bug Guy: In The News So many of you have heard that the Emperor scorpions were banned from import. Well that is partially true. The last 2 countries that most of them were coming from were not returning reports on their populations. They are a cities species so that is required. So what this means is until one of those 2 countries starts sending those reports/studies then they will not be exported from those countries. There is rumor that one of those 2 countries is in the process of doing the reports. Also there are a couple other possible countries to get emperors from but it has not been done yet so who knows if it can be. Long story short emperors will go up in price till something works itself out or maybe they will never get imported again....who knows.
