Please Help Identify Pest


I found 2 very identical holes in the side of the attic wall (on opposite ends of the pole barn). There are also these fluffy cocoon like things attached to the wall. There is also what appears to be a rectangular mud nest attached to the wall. I know the three are not probably related, but I would like to know the causes and possible fixes.

Re: Please Help Identify Pest


Looks like some sort of caterpillar cocoon. Not a big problem.
Bottom one looks like a mud dauber wasp. Knock it off and throw away.
Plug up holes where they are getting in.

They sheeted the gables on the ground and poked holes for the chain so the crane could lift them .

The fluffy cocoon-like things look like black-widow spider nests. The mud looks like a mud-dauber wasp nest.
