Bees in chimney
- ED (16th May 2019 @ 12:20:58)

Would any local bee keepers/bee enthusiasts or anyone who has had this situation have any advice about bees nesting in a disused chimney please? I am receiving conflicting advice online about whether they can just be left alone (although lots are appearing in the house through an open chimney which could be problematic), some say it will cause a bigger problem and damage the chimney if they are not removed, and I’ve had a quote for live removal in excess of £2k (not including scaffolding cost!) :/ I don’t mind them being there if I can keep them out the house and they won’t do damage.
If anyone has been in this situation any advice gratefully received !
Many thanks

I had the same situation some years ago. Due to the height of the chimney no one would attend to clear them out. Unfortunately I think some hornets ate them because they seemed to dissapear within a few months. They may go of their own accord.

I had this problem a few years ago, I contacted the British Beekeepers Association, who had a list of beekeepers in the area, and a lady beekeeper came out to me and removed the bees and took them to a hive that she had in her orchard, this she did for free.
