Recently I have found these bugs around the outside of the house and entry ways. There are in the thousands to hundereds of thousands...if not more.

They are very small - approximatly 1.5 - 2 MM. They crawl slowly but will also jump like a flea if disturbed (I sure hope they aren't fleas).

The bugs squish easily and seem to be killed by the Ortho bug spray pump that I have been using.

They do not seem to bite but are literally covering everything outside - anything new that is put out (a cardboard box for example) will have them crawling over it in an hour.

Any idea what they are?
