They are cool to observe in my tanks, but bites are painful. Comparable to the sting of a bee I would say.

Around here, during the summer... they swarm by the hundreds underneath lights at night. They can't really crawl, so they just flop around on the ground. I have a few biting experiences from catching fish in a pond with a net. The beetles are in there and once you stick your hand in to get the fish, they bite you and it hurts terrible.
