Help Needed - Possible Termites?

I was mowing my lawn today and noticed some bugs in the dirt next to my house's foundation. I'm worried that they may be termites. This is my first house and I have never had to deal with termites before. Our house passed the termite inspection about 3 1/2 years ago when we bought it, but no one has looked at it since. Please take a look at the pictures and let me know what you think.

These are termites....

Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.
