    Why do bugs always seem to die upside down?

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.

    Carabid ground beetle. Sometimes the insecticide used caused muscle contractions and insect ends up on its back. Other times, don't really know.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.
