don't worry emps are know to go a long time without eating...they can go up to 1 year without eating......now also what is your tank setup like? what substrate? how much substrate? tank temp? humidity? hides?... the quicker your emp is happy and comfy the more likely it will eat sooner....but the main thing is emp's have really slow metabolism so they can be slow between meals... no rush....

Don't fret too much mate. Scorps can go about a year without food before they kick off. 2 weeks isn't a huge issue.

Take the food out for now, and offer a cricket every couple days (use some tongs).

Eventually they will eat.

Check to make sure the temp/humidity are right as well. You may have a molt coming on (hence the not eating) and it may continue to not eat until the molt is finished.

You might also have a gravid. I hear they sometimes don't eat before they pop.
