Our yard yesterday looked like something from a horror movie! Everywhere you looked there were June-bug size lime green beetles of some sort flying close to the ground - some seemed to be mating. Are these good guys, bad guys or what? If they're bad guys, what do I do?

I find the grubs in my compost pile and they are flying all over my backyard.

I checked out the picture and yes, that's what they are. Thank you so much for the reply - guess I won't worry about them unless they land in my hair! Creepy!
PS I realize I'm in the wrong Forum but thought I had switched to General :?
