i was wondering whether or not i could hypothetically put my scorpion into a tank with my blue and black death feigning beetles. i've read about people housing their hadurus arizonensis with blue death feigning beetles so i was wondering if this will work with different species of beetles and scorpions.

I personally would not do that. The chance the scorpion would kill them is rather high.

i saw a thread on arachnoboards im pretty sure the same exact question, I didn't see the answers though.  But my guess is that the darkling beetle have a higher chance of nibbling on the scorpion than the scorpion tearing them to shreds.
But I suppose that if you keep the beetles well fed, the scorpion well fed, and take out the scorpion when you see signs of premolt, that will significantly decrease the chances of the insects and arachnids from getting killed.  
(and I got only one wrong on the Europe test so no Kyle kyleson for you.) lol!
