Small beetle that shocks?

Ive seen two of these in my life in oklahoma. They are small, slender beetles with two curved projections on their rears. They are all black and they deliver an electric shock when touched. I even used a paper towel to pick the second one up last month and it shocked my hand through the paper towel, it couldnt have possible bit me and there was no mark but i felt like i touched an electric fence for a split second.

What are the quickest growing shade trees?

We are building an arena and we want to line the west side with a few quick growing shade trees. We live in Creek County, and it's primarily sandy, red dirt, and sandstone. We would prefer that it didn't drop anything besides leaves and limbs.

hydrangea growing

Because of the strange weather and late freezes, etc., I had no flowers again this year. I do understand all of that, but my question is whether to prune back some the way overgrown plants now so that I will be able to have room next year for new growth. They are huge and healthy from all the rain and the water I give them in hot weather. All the growth this year is new. Will it form buds next year on the parts of the branches that remain after pruning, if I do it now?
