 Strange bugs

Recently I’ve been seeing strange bugs in my Ts water dish. I was told they’re springtails but I want a second opinion. WHAT Are springtails exactly? Are they harmless? How do I get rid of them?

Springtails are cryptozoa frequently found in leaf litter and other decaying material, where they are primarily detritivores and microbivores, and one of the main biological agents responsible for the control and the dissemination of soil microorganisms.
