We moved from Az to San Antonio and didnt think there would be scorpions here were we ever wrong. Steven our tech assured us he could take care of the problem and he has not let us down once. He is always friendly and very professional plus has a great attitude. My wife and I agree that if Bulwerk lost Steven we would have probably switched companies. I also have my parents vaction house sprayed monthly and Steven is the reason we stay with Bulwark.‎

What Do Mud Daubers Do?

Mud daubers are solitary wasps that create nests from blobs of mud. Mud is rolled into a ball, carried to the nest and molded into place with the wasp's mandibles. The wasp creates columns of hollow cells. These wasps do not defend their nests and sting only when they feel directly threatened. Nests are commonly found in eaves, under bridges or in attics of houses.

How Do Mud Daubers Reproduce?

The female mud dauber gathers food, in the form of insect larvae or spiders, stings it to paralyze it, and then places this immobilized prey in the cell. She then lays one egg in each cell, seals the cell with mud, and never returns. The larvae feed on the insects and emerge to start the cycle again.

Interesting Facts About Mud Daubers:

If the female does not complete a cell before nightfall, she will seal it temporarily and then reopen it in the morning to continue her work.
