Mud Dauber Wasps:
Mud Dauber wasps do not live in social colonies. They form nests that look like long thin tubes out of clay or mud. These nests are where they lay eggs, which grow into larvae and eventually into more wasps. Mud daubers build their nests in protected areas, such as, house siding, window boxes, sheds, decks, and overhanging ceilings. Mud Daubers are thin and shiny, usually either black and brown, or they could have orange, yellow, and black markings. They usually feed on spiders. Mud daubers can be controlled relatively easy using the standard wasp and hornet spray.Using a Gotcha Sprayer or Gotcha Sprayer Pro adaptor and an extension pole, you can simply attach a can of wasp and hornet spray, extend the extension pole and spray the nest in short quick blasts. Do this around dusk and the mud daubers will never know what hit them. Using a scraper to remove the old nest, will help ensure that other queen mud daubers won�t move in. Using the Gotcha Sprayer in addition to the wasp and hornet spray will allow you to minimize the amount of chemical sprayed all over the house and yourself. You will be able to position the wasp and hornet spray directly in front of the nest without trapping yourself on a ladder. Some wasp and hornet sprays are petroleum based and can discolor siding, damage shingles, and kill surrounding foliage. Using wasp and hornet spray with the Gotcha Sprayer adapter and an extension pole allows you to minimize the mess and over-spray.
Spraying wasps, yellow jackets and hornets is much easier with the Gotcha Sprayer and Gotcha Sprayer Pro. Spraying cans of aerosol wasp and hornet spray from the ground when trying to reach the peak of a roof or the eaves is a messy job, not to mention getting the over-spray on your house, in your eyes, and in your lungs. Simply insert a can of wasp and hornet spray, secure by tightening the strap, attach to an extension pole, and spray. Easily kill wasps and kill yellow jackets. By positioning the wasp and hornet spray directly in front of the nest, there is less over-spray and is much safer than using a ladder. With the Gotcha Sprayer Pro you can easily add a duster for applying insecticide dusts. Sometimes wasp and hornet spray alone will not kill carpenter bees. Using the Gotcha Sprayer Pro with a powder duster, enables you to leave a residual dust in the carpenter bee nest, eventually killing the carpenter bees. The Gotcha Sprayer Pro can be purchased alone or as a kit, enabling you to spray aerosols or powder dusters yet costing much less than the Bee Pole or the Dustick (dust stick).
The stinging insects that people most commonly come in contact with are classified in the order of Hymenoptera. That includes: yellow jackets, hornets, and wasps. In general, yellow jackets, hornets, and wasps have a negative reputation around people, however when they are not intruding in our personal space, they can be helpful in certain ways: yellow jackets, hornets, and wasps feed their young largely on flies and caterpillars. yellow jackets, hornets, and wasps help keep these pests population in check. Unfortunately, the personality of these insects changes as the season progresses. Early on yellow jackets, wasps, and hornets will only defend their nests when they feel threatened. As the season progresses and food sources become less available, they become more aggressive. yellow jackets, hornets, and wasps are considered social insects and live in colonies. Within the colonies there is a distinct hierarchy between builders, gatherers, and reproducers. Some colonies of insects continue for many years, others such as yellow jackets, hornets, and wasps start over every year.
