How to get rid of mud dauber wasps

Ah, the faithful Mud Dauber. If you want to get rid of them that is fine, but I wouldn’t bother. Mud Daubers are not like other wasps. They are extremely calm and non-aggressive. They will happily move on when their nest is destroyed and make a new one instead of trying to fight off whatever predator destroyed it.
