Larval foods (nest cell provisions) and larval feces of the black and yellow mud dauber, Sceliphron caementarium (Drury), were assayed for fresh and dry weight, % water, total protein, digestible and indigestible carbohydrates, lipids, ash, and caloric value. Provision and fecal mass dry weights are smaller in S. caementarium than in the organ pipe mud dauber, Trypoxylon politum, but caloric values for unashed samples of provisions and feces are similar to published values for T. politum.
