Unlike reptiles, scorpions do not need UV light. Furthermore, prolonged exposure to UV light will stress your scorpion and is considered harmful. An IR bulb is the preferred method for heating and night viewing. Scorpions don't see the red light given off by an IR bulb.

And although your scorpion will survive at 70 it will be much more active and happy in the 80's
