When mud dauber flying around your balcony, it would be stressed to enjoy the outside scene. One customer in Northwest Washington DC did have a mud dauber problem and found us to conduct extermination.

Inspection

We arrived on the scene on the same day that we took the customer’s call and immediately discovered two mud nests in the customer’s balcony.

The nests were well constructed — clearly wasp larvae were alive and thriving inside. Breaking the nest confirmed our suspicions. Natural wasps sting these insects and feed them to their young. They had to be removed to avoid the population increasing to dangerous levels.

Removal and Treatment

We removed the mud nests and cleaned up the affected area. We then sprayed the balcony to create a chemical barrier impenetrable to mud daubers, greatly reducing the chances of re-infestation.

If you have any questions/comments, either leave me a comment below.
