I just filled a raised bed with new garden soil and I have 1000's of tiny flea size bugs jumping and flying around. I am trying a different soil and they are very attracted to it. The other raised beds don't have them. Can anyone identify them so I can find the best method to get rid of them?

Some kind of fungus gnat?
