    Have you considered following them to the source of their mud? Muddaubers have an unerring ability to find the finest clay in the area. Good for pottery, chinking, poultices, ovens.

    Sometimes there is a peaceful solution. :)

    Ken, I have the same problem.....did you hang it in your shop or outside?? Those suckers built their mudnests in and on everything in my shop. People always said to ignore it because they kill spiders (which I do have a lot of [wooden barn]) but enough is enough.
