Why do insects like Wasps carry mud?

The wasp that carries mud is known as Mud Dauber Wasp. They carry mud because they build their nest by using mud or clay, in the shape of a cylindrical tube which looks like a flute or organ pipe. They emit a high pitched buzz while working the nest, which helps to distribute the mud evenly.

Common sites of making their nests include vertical or horizontal faces of walls, cliffs, bridges, and shelter caves or other structures.
