what natural stuff is safe to use?

I have an unlimited supply of wild moss, rotten trees etc etc from my woods. What is suitable for scorpions? Is there anything that will harm them?

Thanks

I'm not to sure on this one mate, I don't know enough about it to comment,
the last thing I would want to do I guess and cost you, your scorps

Good luck in finding the info you're after

Some people would usually recommend to nuke anything from "the wild", some other would argue that the scorpion IS a wild animal so there is no need to nuke as the scorpion would be exposed to the same things in its natural environment... (keeping in mind that emps are not europeean scorps)

I would microwave anything from the woods dirt included. Could be eggs from other species, mites and many other microscopic living things.
Cant go wrong with some coco fiber/ecoearth +peat...
