You should only let the food be in the tank for 24 hours. The scorp is propably not hungry atm.
Try again later Wink

Well the food item shouldn't be there more than a day or you'll stress the scorpion out. And don't feed wild caught feeders either, because they can have pesticides, chemicals, or parasites. Try buying pinhead crickets or roaches from any local petstore.
Also, he might just not be hungry, but sxorpiokns should eat 2-3 times a week.
How big is the scorpion?

Sometimes whey you move a scorp to a new enclosure it might take him a bit to settle in before he starts to eat. Just make sure he has access to water at all time.

Also from your other post your scorpion appears to be housed on the wrong substrate and at the wrong humidity levels. In that case he may be trying to escape the harsh environment more then he needs to eat right now.

Also scorpions can go weeks without eating. Don't worry too much. Offer a feeder once a week and remove it the next day if it's not been eaten. Try again the next week.

The peeps above are right.

Do check out the following FAQ if you have not. It works for Heterometrus spp. as well:
