Brief Summary
provided by Catalog of Hymenoptera in America North of Mexico
Most species nest in pre-existing cavities such as in stems, twigs, abandoned larval bagworm cases, and abandoned mud-dauber cells, but one species (perhaps erroneously) has been reported as also building mud nests attached to foliage. Caterpillars are stored as prey.
