Mud Dauber

mud-dauber-wasps-command-pest-controlSometimes called dirt daubers, the mud dauber species seldom sting and are not protective of their nests. Mud daubers typically attach under all kinds of eaves, porches, and walls; they are commonly identified by their hard mud nests which are abandoned late autumn. Mud daubers have a very compressed alien like look with their skinny needle like waist; they are also called thread waist wasps. Some mud daubers prey on black widow spiders.
