The process is called Parthenogenesis, and you'll find as a result of it, the babies are all female. Scorpions can reproduce parthenogenically, but they usually reproduce sexually.

If you are really interested, this paper tells you more about scorpion reproduction than you ever need to know, unless you are a scorpion....

Oh my God!  It's the Scorpion Messiah!  We're saved!

By the way, if three dudes in turbans show up with a gift basket of spices, just say "Thank you".
