i'm thinking about getting into breeding. with what i've read so far about androctonus and parabuthus; during the mating process, males often sting the females and females often injure the males with their claws. could this be prevented by the use of hot wax or silicone on the tip of the stinger and rubber bands on the female's claws???

hi apollyon. first of all welcome to the forum. second of all. during the mating process. the males sting the females to "slow" her down so he can run away without getting eaten as the female is normally bigger. little kefuffles are normal in the mating process. think about in the wild. nobody is there to put rubber bands on the scorps for mating. and by putting hot wax on the stinger will put huge amounts of stress on the scorpions as the stinger is super sensitive. as with the rubber bands. you might even damage the claws more than what could happen if you leave them alone. hope some of this helps.
Regards Sam

true, i just don't want them to seriously hurt each other during breeding. i'm always hearing about the males getting their legs, pectines and in some cases their claws cut off by the female after breeding. i figured that rubber bands or silicone could prevent this from happening and it would be a lot less stress than loosing a limb.
