Eumeninae larvae?

Eumeninae larvae?
Loudonville, Ashland County, Ohio, USA
September 3, 2019
Cleaning outdoor collapsible plastic end tables with a few mud-filled cavities in the legs. I had noticed some bee/wasps drifting around in that area. Wow. I went to clean them with a hose and brush. Required getting a small screwdriver to remove the mud. Oh my. Those tiny larvae were embedded in it. Earlier in the year I'd posted this fella/gal only 6 feet away - delving into a piece of sedimentary rock and seeming to pull bits of it out. https://bugguide.net/node/view/1703010
