Watermelon Beetle

Also know as the Ten Lined June Beetle. When I was a kid and went to camp, these guys were always buzzing around the lights at night during the summer. They make a hissing noise when disturbed (which provides entertainment for our dog who never harms them but certainly is curious). I don’t think they bite but they fly and are annoying.
