Unfortunately lost 2 this weeks, so I'm down to 21. Not sure what was the reason for these 2 to die, moisture, ventilation and temps are fine.
I did have an accident with a can of self-defense "pepper-spray" in my living room, so that could be a possibility.

I'd be more inclined to think genetics Dolby....They are not clones so there must be some genetic diversity...They can't all be strong....We see this to with moulting...Scorpions born on the same day usually start out with moulting within a few days of each other but as they get older the time difference between same age scorpions moulting can be quite significant.....despite being brought up in identical containers with identical environment and diet .. For me this suggests a certain amount of genetic diversity so perhaps the few that died had nothing to do with your pepper spray accident but instead had to do with their particular genetic makeup.

I entirely agree with your point of view.
I would say in this case it would be not higher that a 10% chance that the pepper-spray would have something to do with the deaths.

As far as I know, it's just a concentrate from chili peppers, although it does have an irritating effect in the lungs/eyes of humans and dogs, mostlz giving us the feeling it burns (believe me, it does burn Very Happy ) I believe scorpions can tolerate it without major problems, and I doubt it has something that would actually be toxic to them.

My german sucks these days, but the can says "Mit natürlichem hochaggressivem pfefferkonzentrat"

Thought it would be something similar, but not using german for 10 years have made me forget everything learned in school Smile

Thanks Den!
