These small black and yellow wasps with slender body build elegant nests from mud which is very amazing for such small insects. Building nests from mud has earned them the name mud dauber.

This insect collects mud in the form of tiny balls with the help of its jaws called mandibles, from wet places, banks of ponds and streams. The mud balls are held in the front legs to bring it to the site of nest construction. The small mud balls are clumped and pressed together very artfully to form a tube for laying eggs and keeping the spiders paralysed and trapped as food for themselves and the larvae. A single tube wTould have several sealed chambers, each containing a larva and spider as food.
