Sometimes separating for a while works.

Also, mating could have occurred and you missed it. Sometimes the female eats the spermatophore, so there's no evidence.

Are you absolutely positive that you have a male / female pair?

I would seperate them for a few weeks and put them back together. I've had a few scorpions, although already gravid, try to mate. If this doesn't work then I would try a cooling period.

Some species have better success reproducing when given some time at a cooler temperature than usual. This is more appropriate for Ts and temperate species of scorpion, so I don't know how much it would help a species from deserts as hot as those Androctonus comes from.

I've heard of some people using cooling periods for species like A. australis. Like Mike said, I don't know how necessary this is because I have never bred any Andros.

I think the Andros need that to let's say ( a fake winter ) then when warm come again
this the ( fake spring ) so it's breeding time.
