Mud daubers tend to build their mud cells in areas such as the side of homes and attic spaces. This can be problematic because not only are the mud cells unsightly, but they are filled with insects that the adult moths store for the larvae inside the mud cell to eat. When you knock down the nest, the insects that were in it can attract more pests towards your house. If you have a problem with this solitary wasp, then you need a Jacksonville mud dauber exterminator.
What Are Mud Daubers?
These insects range in length anywhere from ½ of an inch to 1 1/4 inches. Usually they are black or blue metallic colored and many specie abdomens are separated from the thorax by a slender waist.
Even though they are wasps, they typically don’t sting and are not aggressive like paper wasps and yellow jackets.
In fact, they are a beneficial insect to the environment because they prey on spiders, such as the black widow spider that hides around buildings and in attics. Even still, there are times when you will need mud dauber control, especially if they are finding their way into your house.
What is Mud Dauber Extermination?
With the use of pesticides such as aerosols, the wasps can be eliminated from areas such as attics. Bug-Man can even prevent them from entering your home again using effective exclusion methods in areas that they are prone to enter. Foraging dirt daubers can also be treated directly while in flight.
Once the insects have been exterminated, the nest can either stay in place or be taken down. Usually, once a mud nest has been exterminated, it is not inhabited by new mud daubers. To keep yourself safe, it is best to hire a company that not only can provide mud dauber extermination, but can prevent them from being able to get inside your house.
