Ants are very bad. They will kill your scorpions. Bugsincyberspace.com also sells isopods, and some are cheaper than what ken sells. Here is the Link.

Try giving them something more interesting to eat like a cracker outside of the tank. Figure out where they are are coming in at and place an ant trap there.

ahkk.decimate the ant poputlation! do what that Street there says and you should be good.sugars attract ants like crack and weak,ghetto minded,scum.candy,chips,spilled soda on a hard surface,a slice of an apple.Pixar.

if you want to know what gender your emp is,get a good pic of its pectine area and post it on here.depending on where you go they make not sex em for you and youll have to do it yourself or someone who have false info and give you a wrong gender.
its all up to you if you want to witness the miracle of emp brood and motherhood.

care for em is like what Bedlam said simplified.

your scorpions sweet buttocks' are attracting em!
no but i dunno,leftover crickets,the comfiness of your emps soil and warmth,the water. it is a sad thing when one dies.it will always be even with the adults we get.comes with the territory buddy. Sad
but on a brighter note ive only witnessed the death of one scorpling out of my c.sculpturatus brood which was a total of 28 babies.that one will be missed though.

your positive its a female you have?

its easy to check at a pet store.narrow the emps of similar size to choose from and bring a clear container to put them in and look.sure itll take a lil extra time.but time is nothing when you get what your looking for.

You may want to clean your tank (change substrate, etc) The ants will have put down chemical signals for other ants to follow, and the signals lead into your tank. If you put isopods into your tank, you should not have to worry about mold.
