Well, they actually are wasps, they do have stingers and they do have venom. That's how they paralyze the spiders that you find if you break open one of their nests.

I've never heard of someone being stung by a mud dauber, they seem to be quite tolerant and gentle, but I'm sure it has happened once or twice.
