I have two Harry desert scorpions that I got in death valley California I live in Blackfoot Idaho I've had them for 6 months now a male and a female and they've done very well in a 10 gallon aquarium just in the last 4 days they both started acting very lethargic and sick and today the mail died and I don't know what's wrong with them I kept the temperature approximately between 70 and 80 the only thing I can think of is that humidity here has been very high the last couple days my mail just died in the female is acting sick what can I do

I would raise the temps to 85F-90F. A heat lamp and ventilation can assist with temps and humidity. But yes, post a pic of the enclosure.

Post pictures of the setup.

Were they exposed to chemicals? When did they last eat and what did you feed them?

Humidity would not kill them in 4 days.
