Ant-like Hemipteran

Ant-like Hemipteran
Folsom, CA, Placer County, California, USA
June 22, 2011
Size: approx. 1 cm
I found this on a tree trunk. It was one of maybe hundreds, all scurrying around and very skittish. The individuals appear similar to ants from a couple feet away. I know its a Hemipteran, but that's about all.
