I have to kill MUD DAUBERS & locate & remove their nests from my sailboat

Asked September 9, 2015, 12:03 PM EDT

Mud daubers - see Wikipedia article I have not used the boat for a long time & they got there, They made nets somewhere on my boat & i am not able to locate their nests. I am afraid of crawling there when they are alive & may sting me. I used a powder poison to kill then outside but i can not use it inside for health reasons. I sprayed there but It did not oil them since i can not see where they are. I can use a fogger - please recommend which & where I can get it.

Mud daubers are very docile. We'd recommend that you wait until cold weather sets in which will eliminate them. Then locate the nests and scrape them off. Here is more info: http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/mud-daubers
