Earwig season has started, and I was wondering if they were able to be fed to scorps. I know they should be killed first, but afterwards, would scorps like them?

Some scorpions would take it if they are hungry but try to stick with farm-bred feeders e.g. Roaches/crickets and occasional meal/super worms.

It's hard to anticipate what has came into contact with wild collected feeders.

Okay, thanks. I kind of figured that that would be the problem.

I agree with GS, although they would probably have no issues with eating them, unless they are captive farmed I'd be worried about contaminants and parasites.

Better to be safe than sorry I say. Smile
