What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

New Mexico beetle
On a trip from Oklahoma to the west coast, I came across dozens if not a hundred or two of these beetles alongside I-40 in mid-New Mexico. I have had no success online in finding the ID. I will watch with interest for enlightenment. Thank you,

Hi Betty,
Congratulations on recognizing this as a beetle. It is a Blister Beetle in the genus Megetra.
