Identifying a Tiny Black Jumping Bug

I have no pets and am living in a well kept house. I was lying on my carpet one night and felt something on my arm. I saw a tiny black bug that jumped to my wrist, then onto my pillow. I squeezed it between my fingers, but it jumped away when I checked. Please identify this insect.

Thank you.

It looks like a hard shelled beetle.

Hard to see, sorry. Does yours look like this:

Springtails are the jumpy bugs I know. Not dangerous, pesky icky, but not harmful.

One I would not worry about. Bunches yes, you could have an issue.

If you do, there are natural remedies that usually work before you have to call in the big gun (chemicals are dangerous so I always suggest starting with the cheap and natural first).
