I have no pix, sorry. Always show up here at this time of the year. Zillions of them. Winged beetle, 1/2" long, green (not a bright greem, more of a grey/green) with dark legs and antenna. Mating in and eating my trees. Lots in the grass as well. They even land on me if I am outside. Biggest bunch can be found on the flowers of my tree lilacs. Tomorrow it is get out the backpack sprayer. Takes more than one round the win the battle. I have Googled and looked here and at countless pictures on-line, nothing yet seems right.
