Maintenance

Mud Daubers and your Outboard Motor

For those with boats in the marina, you may have noticed mud dauber wasps in the area.

Generally harmless enough, these mud nest builders can wreak havoc on your outboard motor by building their nests inside. It is easy for them to get inside the motor, since the outside air inlets usually have no filters and allow direct entry inside your cowling.

Alternator and cam drive belts can be dislodged and internal engine damage done if a wasp builds his nest in amongst the belts and pulleys. Nests in the air inlet tract can allow large chunks of dirt to enter the engine as well.

The solution - purchase and use an engine cover and they will stay out.

Storage
