Black Beetle with 4 Yellow Spots on Lucifer Bulb.
Planted Crocosmia 'Lucifer' last year and only half are shooting up greenery. Probably not unlikely that the others will still shoot up stems soon, but I got curious and dug down to the side of a plant that is still all brown. Bulb looks good except for one spot where I saw two black beetles about 3/8 of an inch long and they both had 4 small yellow spots on their back. Where they were on the bulb there is a soft spot perhaps half inch wide and 1/4 inch deep. Should I be concerned? Are there beetles that attack bulbs? Wonder if the soft spot came first or the beetles.
Anything I should do? Are they going to attack all my bulbs? I have tulips, daphodils, Iris, and lillies in the same bed.
