Just chase them into a tub and throw them into the enclosure.

My wife has unsteady hands. She uses a small fish net, she's become very good with it. Corner them, hold them in net, drop in tank. 3-4$ approx price.

I keep mine in plastic water bottles. Makes it easy as you can just "pour" out as many as you need.

Thats a REALLY good idea! Im gonna try that as well. Ive been keeping mine in a small plastic tank and its been a real pain in the butt to try and catch them with tongs and feed my scorp.
Great advice!

Excellent! That's what i'm doing as well.
For some of the feeding attempts, e.g. feeding specimens which are housed in tackle-boxes, even if we are unable to "pour" the crickets out for feeding, it'll so much easier to even if we were to try and grab the crickets with tongs as they are confined within a small space (e.g. a plastic water bottle like what DolbyR has suggested)

For single feedings when a strict number of feeders is needed (early instars, etc) I first drop the crix out of the box into a 60ml vial, to make sure I get exactly as many crickets as needed.
