Orange Beetles in my soil

Hi. . . .this may be an easy one for some of you but I’m new at gardening. I am in Connecticut. I am weeding in my tomato/cuke/pepper garden and I keep uncovering orange colored beetles that don’t seem happy that I’m digging them up. What are they? And will they hurt my plants? I have one green pepper with a big hole, but nothing else seems to be eaten, does this come later? I appreciate any help anyone can give me. What to do if they are harmful?
