The soldier's pointed snout identifies this as a species of Nasutitermes. N. exitiosus builds a mound like this, and the soldiers have a dark brown head, so it seems a good match.

Hi Kim, sorry about that thought we looked at the termites to compare them but obviously didn't. This one does look more like the one you have identified it as.
Thank for your help regards, Rod and Deb
