Bug ID? WTF are these plant killers?

  1. Do they jump or fly? They look like they are from the soil. Thrips are even smaller, they also jump and move like a centipede.

  2. That's the weird thing. These are the first two "adults" I have found. I originally noticed bugs in my run-off. MILLIONS of them but so tiny they appeared to be dust until i saw them sort of jump/spring in or on the water. So I thought they were harmless springtails. But they aren't harmless. I haven't seen the grown ones jump. I cannot find a single bug on a leaf. They are all on the soil or under the cloth Smart Pots.
