What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Once again your site helped with an identification (Beetles page 4)! Over the past few weeks these have been numerous in damp wooded areas of Columbia, MD. I do have a few questions about them. Are these blister beetles? Are the wings clear? Thank you,
Edwin Tullos

Hi Edwin,
Your beetle is Cicindela sexguttata, the Six-Spotted Tiger Beetle. Beetles have two sets of wings. The elytra are metallic green the the membraneous flying wings are hidden from view.
