Umm
I'm not too up to date on beetles types nowadays and I just moved to a new place but...I found a huge beetle in my room a few nights ago and this is the most similar beetle picture I could find on here. Do you know if they appear in Georgia?

It scared me to death by the way. I duuno how it got in but I've been watching it in a nice terrarium I have. Seems it mostly likes to burrow?

 
Yes, they appear in Georgia.
Yes, they appear in Georgia. Here's one I met last night.
