I have tiny insects on the concrete. What are they?

I detected some tiny insects wandering over my concrete. They are under 1 mm even with a magnifying glass you can't really make out details but you can see these tiny black spots marching. They do not jump and their speed is about 1cm / sec or so. I noticed them at a rate of maybe 10 or so per square meter. There is a garden on one side of the patio in case that matters. Can you help me identify these insects?

Answer:

We are not sure exactly what you are describing....it could be any number of things.  Springtails is what we are thinking of first, but cannot be sure.  Either way, we would recommend Talstar P.  Talstar P is our most popular pest control product and it is very safe to use as well.
