HOW TO GET RID OF MUD DAUBERS
Mud Daubers are about ½ inch to 1 inch in size and have a distinct slender or threadlike waist. Mud Daubers get their name from their mud constructed nests. They are solitary wasps and do not live in colonies nor are they defensive over their nests like other paper wasps or social species.
MUD DAUBER INSPECTION
MUD DAUBER CONTROL METHODS
Mud Daubers can be seen as beneficial insects because they help control the caterpillar and spider population in the area. However they can still be a nuisance for others who may suffer from wasp allergies or when the Mud Dauber nests are placed near entrances with high pedestrian traffic. When treating the nest we recommend using a product like Wasp Freeze or Stingray Wasp Spray which will jet out about 20 feet so you can spray the nest from a safe distance. After treating the nest we highly recommend you remove the nest to prevent future infestations.
