What's the difference between breeding a scorpion in March to June and Sept to December vs breeding it anytime of the year?

I'd guess it would have something to do with daylength or other environmental cues they'd have in the wild. Fortunately it seems like captivity they'll breed year-round, or you can mimic certain environmental events (monsoon season, etc.) whenever you want to get them to breed.

In captivity almost no animals have a selected breeding season, the breeding season of a wild animal is after all just the result of a favourable selection of conditions.

If these conditions are replicated in captivity they will breed all year round.

It won't affect their success rate producing scorplings?
