    Of all the places for bees to start building their hive around your home the chimney is the worst. It is one of the few places on the home’s exterior where the bees can actually find a way into the home. When you begin to see little wings flying out of your fireplace you know you have a bee infestation problem. Take time now to protect your chimney before it’s too late.

    Here are steps you can take to safeguard your chimney from bees:

    • Increasing the airflow within the chimney discourages bees from entering.
    • Check for and repair any mortar joint damage that may be producing holes small enough for a bee to fly through.
    • When the chimney is not in use make sure to close the damper.
    • Installing a protective screen over the chimney opening can help prevent bees from entering the space.
    • Always remove any remnants of the bee hive once you have addressed the infestation problem. These hives can become a magnet for other bees.

    The best way to prevent bees from swarming your chimney and home is through early prevention. This will save you the time and hassle of having to deal with a pesky bee hive.
