Protect your home from mud dauber infestations

Mud Daubers

Appearance
Adults can be as large as 1/2 1 plus inches in length. Mud daubers are long and slender in shape and can be a variety of colors including iridescent blue.
Habitat
Mud daubers select a sheltered site to build their mud tubes. You will most likely see them under eaves, porch ceilings, garages and sheds left open, etc. Nests typically exhibit round holes in them as the wasps emerge. This usually means the nest is old and inactive.
Diet
Mostly spiders.
Reproduction
These wasps are solitary, the mud tubes being the nests.
