If it's like the mud daubers around here, they will build their own mud
tunnels under the eaves. It may have been a convenient hole. The mud dauber
also deposited an egg with the cabbage looper (which was only comatose) so
that the larvae would have food while growing. We have both the black /
yellow and the blue mud daubers here.
