Mud daubers build small tube-like nests of mud under the eaves of homes, in attics and other storage areas. Mud daubers primarily feed on spiders, including the brown recluse spider.
While most wasp species are considered a beneficial insect, in some instances they can cause injury to humans. Preventive measures around the outside of the home, barn or work area can reduce where they build their nests. Seal off openings under the eaves of roofs, attics, garages, storage sheds, barns, in open-ended pipe pens and a variety of other protected sites. Identification is important to determine if you have social or solitary wasp species around the home.

Remember, social wasps will defend their nest and solitary wasps rarely sting humans.
