Topic How often do i mist my Parabuthus transvaalicus.

Post by Tope on Fri Jun 07, 2013 5:15 pm

uhmm.. hello guyz.. i have a question.. how often do i mist my p.trans? 1 got 3 pcs.. the 3 of them are siblings.. got 2 pcs last january 2013, and 1 last march.. one of the 2 p.trans i bought died of bad molt Sad . it died last week, from 2i going 3i.. it was really left behind by the 1 i bought on jan and march. the 2 both molted to 5th instar successfully by the end of may 2013. but what bothers me is this.. before 1 bought the two p.trans, the owner told me, NEVER, EVER Spray even just a single drop to the 2i slings becoz they'll die.. so until the two reached 5th instar, ( unluckily 1 died Sad ) i never sprayed not even once. i researched that it's okay to mist 1 a week at early instars ( does 5instar still at an early stage?) and the adults leave the substrate bone dry, and put a little container with water and pebbles in it and leave it to dry..

so, at this stage, 5th instar.. to mist? or not to mist? hoping to get the answers that i want.. Godspeed ASA!

Hi, your PT is already in 5instar so I dont think there is a need to mist, they can adopt the dry environment very well. They also can molt well without misting, the dead 2instar PT might have a bad molt in that moment, sometimes it does happen, so do not worry about that.

If you plan to put a water bottle cap in the container is fine, my suggestion is refill the water once a month or maybe twice a month, let the water evaporate itself, and make sure you have good ventilation. Smile

You might wish to rephrase your question.

We DO NOT MIST directly on our scorpions, not even to forest scorpions like Pandinus imperators(Emperor scorpions).

You may however, mist a portion of the ENCLOSURE'S WALL, this is normally done for early instars so that they may drink from the mist on the walls.

The quantity of mist should be moderated so that the substrate will not be over dampened in the process. Suggestion on misting is written in the following caresheet: http://www.allscorpionarchives.com/t4-asa-desert-scorpions-caresheet

For 5-8.instar Parabuthus transvaalicus, you may provide water through the usage of a shallow bottle cap filled with water. There will be no requirement to mist the enclosure's wall.
