Distinguishing characteristics: none noticed yet
Distinguishing behavior: loves absolutely loves to clean itself I have not noticed anything else yet

Based on the size and that it's red and black and the fact that you're near Walnut Creek I'm guessing it is probably Camponotus vicinus. Pictures will either confirm or deny that, though.
