Hi, I live in Parker, Colorado. Last night when I was cleaning the kitchen I noticed what looked like black crumbs or pepper on the floor. Went to wipe it up and it was actually a throng of incredibly tiny black bugs. I’ve noticed several just roaming around in the kitchen since I cleaned that spot up, and I want to be sure get rid of all of them.

This is an Elongate Bodied Springtail, a benign creature that can become a nuisance when they are plentiful indoors. They are generally found in conjunction with damp conditions.
