Isopods will really help; they did for me. You could also look into predatory mites to add to your enclosure. Evergreen Growers has these but the name of them escape me at the moment (must be the rum!).

If it's just one or a few you could wipe it off with q-stick dipped in diluted vinegar

Are mites actually bad for scorpions? 
All my wild cought scorpions have mites in the beginning but gradually they all dissapear after a while.
