Is it ok to feed my emps the grasshopers that i see around in the summer? there bigger but not too big that they cant eat them? They are about the same color as dead grass and can fly for a little while and then fall to the ground.

No, because it's possible for WC prey to transmit parasites or pesticides. If you want to feed your scorp grasshoppers, breed them in captivity for a generation or two to eliminate (or at least reduce) this risk.

If you remove adults after eggs are laid, I imagine this would significantly reduce the chance of parasites crossing generations.
