Chimney bees

Tx, United States   

We’ve had a continual problem for many years with bees returning in our chimney. Need a cover that will keep them out but still allow for winter fires in our home fireplace. Thank you!

As long as you have any residual honey comb in the chimney you will get returning bees.
Your best avenue is to contact your local Apiary and ask them to assign someone to collect the Bees.
Apiaries are always looking for new stock and queens.
The hive may not be IN the chimney but near the chimney itself.
You will need to investigate the entire exterior of the chimney and surrounding structures.
The bees may just be coming down for the warmth
