 My Scorpís being Taunted by Crickets!

My scorpion canít hunt. The crickets are smarter than him. After like 2 weeks I have to catch the cricket and throw them right in his face, and even then he has trouble catching them. It can be in his claws and he wonít close them until it hops away. The crickets are the right size (I think) but he wonít get them. Is there something I can do? Or is he just being what he is- a bad hunter.? His temp and humidityís right if thats important..

Remove the jumping legs from the crickets. The way to do this is to pinch the top of the leg nearest to the body and they will pop straight off. This will slow the crixís down and give your Scorpion a better chance of catching them..
