Description: Mud daubers vary in size from 1/4” to 2” in length. Their color also varies from dull black or brown to a metallic purple. They have a typical wasp body type, frequently with a long slender petiole between the abdomen and thorax. Although they possess stingers, they are not usually aggressive and rarely sting. These wasps are solitary creatures and do not build large colonies or nests like other wasps species.
