They are not lops or fleas because they need an animal to live on as they suck blood.
Its more likely the insects the op speaks of are commonly names "Springtails".
They hardly ever come indoors and even if they do they will not breed in there.
They will do no harm to the house, garden or humans.

Here is a link or two for further information about these small jumping insects called Springtails: http://insects.about.com/od/HouseholdPe ... t-Jump.htm

Wiki page for the Springtail:
