If you can get them to eat it, they will.

You shouldn't though, that's not what they are meant to eat and only sparingly manage to catch a meal with that type of meat.

scorpions should only be fed Live food, insects and the like.

you can feed 'em roaches, crickets, etc. I use crickets and they do fine on that.

I'm sure they will survive without food for a while, just wait 'till spring.

If it's winter and insects are hard to find, then it's probably hard for scorps to find them in the wild. They should be ok with fasting for a while, especially if they cool down just a little bit (like they would in the wild).

If you feel they have to be fed, you can try offering them a little bit of meat, but only sparingly and not often. They can digest vertebrate meat, but it's not something they commonly encounter.

You could always order online for food for them.

I Am not and will never suggest rodents dead or alive to scorpions....

why not try to catch something like crickets or roaches in the wild in spring and then get them breeding so that you have some for winter?
