Pin crickets or micro crickets are baby crickets and are recommended for young scorpions. depending on the breed a scorpion will reach adult hood between 6-months and 7 years so you have to judge which cricket is suitable by assessing its size. Brown crickets tend to be silent and are good for adult scorpions. You can gut feed the on fruit and veg, with things like weetabix or digestive biscuits, to provide for your scorpion. Scorpions also can eat meal-worms which can be kept in a fridge place in a tub with dired cereal such as oats for up to 2weeks, place them under a light for a few mins to get them wriggling again. A mixed diet and regular dusting of the crickets with vitamins and calcium will keep your scorpion healthy. Hope that helps. sam x
