We have literally thousands of mud daubers here in north central Arkansas.  Are they going to be a problem for me Huh  They build their mud nests on everything.


 Thanks,

Mike

No, they won't give you a problem, they're solitary wasps and eat bad bugs in the garden, so don't kill them!

I've seen wasps and bumblebees trying to get into the hive, but never a mud dauber.

They mostly just put mud where you don't want it and scare you (some of them are gigantic!).

 After learning that mud daubers kill Black Widows they dont much get my attention any more..We have alot of Black Widows here and They make homes the same places as the Daubers make their nests! I guess thats why the Daubers are one of the biggest enemies of the Black Widow.

Mike, I think that you heard so many answers, mud daubers are cool, they can be nuisance, but when I see them, I don't bother them at all.  I don't even think that they bug humans, not like our other friendly bug gers, like the yellowjacket, hornet and wasps, now they are critters I don't want around, even if they eat bad bugs too, they eat our good bugs, like the bees, hee, haw.  Ignore the mud duabers, they just want to daub mud.  Beautiful day, beautiful life, beautiful.  Cindi

I've never found them agressive or hard to get along with, but they do like to nest in empty equipment.
