Spider Beetle (?) on chicken coop

Spider Beetle (?) on chicken coop
St Louis, St. Louis County, Missouri, USA
June 28, 2020
Size: tiny
Found many walking on the wooden frame of my chicken run around mid-day. They seem to have six white legs with dark joints, two white antennae, and three spikes on the rear. There are some smaller ones (50-75% as big as the dark ones) that are grey but have the same body shape and legs, and there are a few with wings (clear, folded back, about the size of the body - I'll add another image)

These images aren't needed for the Guide, but they will be visible here for 30 days until removed by the system.

Aphids
They're probably falling from an overhead tree or shrub.

Welcome to BugGuide!

 
Thanks!
Thank you! Yes - there's a big overhanging locust tree.
