We found quite of large number of these tiny black bugs in our home tonight. They are smaller than fleas but do jump.

Hi Matt,
The photo is very tiny as well and we cannot really make out any structural details on your bug.  We believe this is a Globular Springtail which is a benign creature (that term just got us in trouble with the Arrow-Headed Flatworm) that can become a nuisance if they are plentiful, and Globular Springtails in the order Symphypleona are generally found in large numbers when conditions are damp.
