Notes:

These appear in my bathroom sink. They are tiny – about 1/16 inch. It appears to have a body, head with feelers, and 3 legs on each side. They jump several inches. I’m really tired of them. Thankfully they don’t seem to bite or sting and clorox spray kills them.

    Thank you both. There is a skylight above the sink so I’ll check it for moisture.

    Details are not clear to tell for certain. For now check out these included links of springtail (Insect Order: Collembola) and see if you have a match. Best wishes! https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/springtails_in_nurseries
