- Mud Daubers have extremely narrow and elongated waists
- The wasps are not aggressive and stings are very uncommon
- Mud daubers build simple nests using mud instead of paper
Mud daubers earned their name by the manner in which they build their nests. The females of these species mold mud into nests that can last multiple years. These nests are easy to identify, and many daubers build their nests on top of each other or within close proximity. While mud daubers may look menacing, it is very rare to be stung by one of these wasps. They can be nuisance because of their nests and many homeowners like to have them removed.
