No you cannot rub the spots off. I was responding with a light hearted joke to Carols question. However, ladybird beetles usually emerge without dots and they develop soon afterwards.

Can you really rub off their spots!?

Some ladybird beetles grow their spots later, as they get older; earn them, if you like. (see link) That is not so with this one, which may have been rubbed off:)
