I'd wait a few months and ask an Arachnoperson in Texas or anywhere in their range to catch you some. I'd do it for you, but they aren't in my area :/ But If I find any soon, I'll let you know!

i have a group of 4 c. vittatus.... i usually feed them baby crickets... but read that they can eat adult ones. what are the odds that an adult cricket would eat the scorps? how many crickets should i feed my scorps ....1 per scorp? how often? (i usually just toss in about 7 baby crickets a week and let them catch)

If they are that size (mesosoma length of 1.5")
they shouldn't have prob taking down adult cricket when they are hungry.
If you're not sure whether all of them are adults, you can reduce the risk by disabling the crickets' hind legs or do a slight head crush Smile
