Those sound like the highly explosive napalm ants.they like the taste of frogs, lizards and aardvarks. Their natural enemy is your mom. Their favorite color is pink because it reminds them of home. They are totally blind and see with their foreheads. Their favorite pass-time is sea-polo.

The ants could be Tapinoma melanocephalum, commonly known as ghost ants. They are recognised by their shady head and pale or semi-transparent legs and abdomen. You can use http://lancaster.unl.edu/pest/ants/ website for further identification.

It could be carpenter ants which are bad because they are like termites in that they eat your house to make their nests.
Could also be a male blue ant which are actually a species of wingless wasp. Found in australia and tasmania. Not destructive but do sting.
