Dynastes tityus blackspot

Recommended Posts

There are various things that can cause black spots on beetle larvae, and not all of them are necessarily dangerous to their health.  Often, the spots are just the result of exposure to an irritant, and the effect doesn't go any deeper than the skin's surface.  If the spots are due to infection with a pathogen however, that can be a more serious problem, but in my experience, this is less common than the harmless types of spots.
