Wasps

Mud Dauber Wasps


Are commonly found in Sydney and belong to either the family Sphecidae or Crabronidae. Mud daubers are generally long and slender, measuring about 25 mm in length. The female wasps build the nests, which consist of mud molded into place by their mandibles. Mud daubers can become defensive when threatened. They are parasitoids, meaning that they capture and paralyze prey in which they lay their eggs. They attach their nests to flat or vertical surfaces. The nests have a finger-like shape and are made up of cells that are formed by the wasps’ mandibles. Mud dauber wasps are medium to large in size and can be either shiny black or metallic blue-black in color, with slender abdomens. A key characteristic of mud daubers is their long, narrow “waist” (also known as a petiole) that connects the thorax to the abdomen. Mud daubers are solitary insects, meaning that each nest is home to only one wasp, who is responsible for all necessary tasks.

If you have problems with Wasps we can treat the affected areas and put a preventative solution in place.
