Very tiny black bugs

Asked June 26, 2016, 12:25 AM EDT

What are these 6 legged, black very tiny bugs with antenna? They are pictured here with cat litter. They don't jump or have wings. They don't like light and are very fast. They live on/in my wooden steps, on the concrete, and are making their way inside.

I can't tell for sure from the photos, but I would guess they are springtails, also known as Collembola.
