Why do some ladybugs not have spots?


Answer by  Tuler (19)

A mutated gene in a strain of a ladybug's DNA can cause an absence of spots on the ladybug's exoskeleton. A mutation can also cause it to have as many as 20 spots on its body. The ladybug's species or age will not cause any effect on the its number of spots.

There are thousands of species of ladybugs in the world, and some of these species don't have spots. It just depends on the species.

Ladybugs are actually beetles. There are over 350 different kinds of ladybugs in North America. The different kinds are identified by color and how many spots they have. They can have as many as 20 spots or no spots. The ladybugs that have no spots are Asian beetles and may have very discreet spots that are difficult to see.


Answer by  katherineagmailcom (140)

Ladybugs have a varying number of spots, some have many some have none. The nubmer of spots do not relate to how old the lady bug is, or precisely what kind of ladybug it is (though entymologists use spots as a guide). The number of spots is just a random feature of the ladybug.

Some of them just don't. Some lady bugs are orange and some are black with red spots. Something interesting is the reason lady bugs are so brightly colored. It is to warn predators they taste bad and are a litte poisinous.


Answer by  BJ (26)

Nobody really knows why some ladybugs have spots, some have none and some have stripes. It most likely has to do with a combination of factors. Partly the spots, or lack of spots are due to species. It's also very likely environment plays a role in whether there are spots or not.


Answer by  TwoToneDodge (2204)

Some varieties of ladybugs do not have any spots. It has nothing to do with the age or health of the ladybug. More species have them than dont have them. Also these ladybugs are no less uselful in garden and plant health. Simply a different form of the same insect.
