Hello, found 6 of these on my driveway last night around 10 pm.
Signature: dont know what this means
Your large beetle is an aquatic insect known as a Predaceous Diving Beetle in the genus Dytiscus, we are linking to the BugGuide page for the genus. Though aquatic, they are capable of flight which serves them well so they can fly to a new habitat if a pond dries out.
Thank You very much for you prompt reply, much appreciated. Hopefully they find a pond with mosquitoes they can munch on.
