This is about the biggest beetle in my area, measuring three inches long, appearing during the monsoon season, late Summer.

Basically a three inch flying cockroach. I have seen some over 6 inches. They fly very awkwardly and are attracted to any bright object from fire to people with lighter skin tone. The grubs can kill a tree by devouring the roots. Mature insects appear during summer monsoons in the desert southwest.
