What are These Tiny Black Jumping Bugs in Phoenix, AZ?

Springtail

Springtails in Springtime

Springtails can be found almost anywhere outdoors in the spring time. They love to live in moist areas in: soil or mulch, decaying material, and can even infest potted plants. 

As landscaping, soil and mulch dry up, Springtails will infest anywhere there is a little MOISTURE!

Springtails are TINY pinhead sized bugs that appear in large groups. If you try to squish a spring tail with your finger, it will JUMP out of your way. Springtails are usually found places like window seals, under trashcans or anything that is on concrete. {Concrete holds onto moisture especially if there is something on top of it outside.}
