Moved to genus for now

dumb
This are either the dumbest or clumsiest beetles I have ever seen. Anyone have any idea what they are? They are always flipped over on their backs and we have had a ton around lately. When they feel threatened their antenna fan out a bit and wave back and forth really quick, vibrating to make a really odd sound. Strangest thing I have ever seen.
