I'm use mostly crickets. Because... My roaches all died out (I'm a bad breeder :8o ) my meal worms all died out (I'm a bad breeder :8o ) my cricket colony was over run by my cats... (I came home one night the cat fell through the screen top, hundreds of crix all over and and my cats pouncing them and eating them)

So I just go to Petsmart and buy 60 or so every two weeks now.

Usually I feed lobster roaches, but occasionally I'll throw in little wolf spiders or jumpers when I find them.


Cheers.

Been feeding crickets. Now have 21 scorps and 4 T's so I just ordered 100 b. dubia and 5 adult pairs to give the new colony a jump start. Figured this would be the better way to go since I'm planning on more scorps and T's and I'll make less trips to the pet store.

I use crickets. Just make sure you gutload them before feeding your scorp for maximum nutrients.

I'm a cricket guy myself, crickets are really cheap in the UK (not sure what they're like in the US) so each scorpion costs me next to nothing to keep.
