p.s. it looked about 1 cm and it was kind of a light brown color

Answer
Hi Gabby; I'll bet it is Gabrielle. Right
There thousands of beetle types and a lot of them are light brown. I would need to see a picture of one. Did you keep any of them? If go to the computer and type in BugGuide. net and search beetles. Let me know Gabby.
