Is this an ANT ?

Observed: 15th October 2012 By: correauno

Hi I am attaching a photo from an animal I belive is an ant. I need to identifie if it is a flying ant or any other bug. It is important as about 50,000 to 100,000 of this bugs arrived to my house around 4 am and they got all in seide the house justo to die all of them in a few more minutes after their arrival about 20 minutes later tey all were dead. Some survive bt they were in bad shape. I need to identifie it in order to know if this type of behaviour is normal or a terrible ecologycal dissaster is happening around to my house so I can investigate and probabily help to repair or restore. Thanks for your help. This happened in Colombia in a Tropical area. Not jungle.
