When left uncontrolled scorpions infestations only get worse! Scorpion infestations grow as they attract more scorpions, mate and reproduce bringing baby scorpions inside your home! Scorpions use vibrations and pheromones to attract other scorpions for mating. In the Phoenix Valley Scorpions mate during late spring & early summer. Mating is a 24 – 36 hour process, and female scorpions undergo a gestational period of 5 months – 1 year. Baby Scorpions “Scorplings” are born live, and then climb onto the mother’s back and she carriers them around for two weeks. At 2 weeks old baby scorpions can sting, and they leave their mothers back. Scorpions reach maturity in about 1 year, then go on to mate and reproduce themselves.
