Scorpions feel vibrations. Loud bangs and soft bangs they will feel. I cant image it will do them too much harm but if you can try to sound proof them, such as towels over their tanks to try to absorb some of the vibrations

It will probably just get them a bit on edge.. I wouldn't imagine it causing any major problems.

^I doubt that.

Excessive loud thuds and vibration would likely cause them stress and I know at least one person in Europe who not only lost a brood, but then lost the mother of the brood due to neighbor's loud fireworks.

The soundproofing that Connie suggested should be your best bet, unless you can move them to a portion of the house further away from where the work is occurring.

I dont think it will be a big problem as long as it doesnt last long. I'm sure theres no construction at night right? That gives it some resting time.

My scorps must go crazy with my nervous condition. They're right next to me on my dresser and I'm constantly tapping my foot lol.
