Mud daubers usually undergo four stages of transformation which includes the last stage where it grows into a full adult. The cycle consists of the egg, then larvae, cocoon, and last but not least, adult. Like most wasp species, Mud daubers are usually active in the warmer months starting in the spring to summer. It is then that Mud daubers develop and hatch out of their cocoon. It is the females that will start the construction of mud nests. These nests are usually cylindrical in shapes.
The Mud dauber female feeds her larvae by hunting spiders and deposits them in one of the holes and seals them up. The larvae will hatch from the egg and will feed on the spider left by the mother. Later, the Mud dauber will slowly change into pupae which take about three weeks to complete. The pupae will spin a silk cocoon to spend the winter for it to emerge next spring.
