i just found this, it could be useful to some degree, some simillar to what you found lisa but this has some graphs to simplify thisng and shows what months had the greatest number of scorpions out and about, youll have to save it as it comes as a word file but its worth it Very Happy

linkety link

oh i also found these a while back never got round to posting them.

ok so this one is E.flavicaudis in a wall crack


and this is a wall another E.flavicaudis was foud in.


oh it also mentions what they observed them eating, there diet is 64% porcello scaber ( woodlice/pill bugs/rollie polies etc ) and 12% E.flavicaudis.

I know im going to sound like im putting my foot in it again but i'd prefer the U16's to have someone responsible with them in the event of accidents. Although apart from the odd scuffed knee or arm going through undergrowth I doubt there will be.

Its piece of mind more than anything. I wouldn't entrust a stranger with my kids unless I'd known them personally for a while.

Thats why we need to research established colonies and where they are. Im pretty sure there is an established colony of P.Imps down south somewhere, lots of escaped ones thriving in our countryside. I remember it being in the news a few years ago. Hopefully they are still down there somewhere.

i dunno if they will still be around and if they are i doubt they are breeding because of the fact we aint had good enough weather for a while lol
the best colony for e.flavicaudis is still the isle of sheppey, a lil island just off of kent, there is a ferry trip that goes to it everyday. Thats the largest colony so that would be the one that would give us a better chance of finding anything.

i dont think they are protected by law because they are not technically a british species more of an intruder for the last 200 years lol, i havnt found anything to do with problems over the law yet

My preference is camping it, its more fun. What does everyone else think?
Is thats the case usual camping equipment. If you need a list of this tell me but it should be pretty obvious!

Black lamp essential! I have an 18" tube just need a portable unit for it

As for legalities SF is not a company, this is basically a load of fellow enthusiasts meeting up so legalities are basically 'at your own risk'!

Will have to check about catching them but i dont think they are protected in any way. As for how many to take, it would be inconsiderate to take as many as you could find to take home with you. A chance find of a male and a female would do me proud! Will look into it though.
