Are they "running about everywhere" mites or "stuck to the scorp's joints and not moving" mites?

If they're the first one, their population exploded because of a free meal (dead scorp babies). They're just the cleanup crew.

Sounds like you have a mix of good and bad. The good ones eat the bad ones.

Post a pic to show us how bad the "bad" ones are if you can -- borrow a camera if you have to.

If they're really bad, remove a few with a Q-tip, but the best option is probably to let the predatory mites do their job.
