Of all the places for bees to start building their hive around your home the chimney is the worst. 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 CSIA Chimney Sweep® credential is not only recognized by local and state governments across all 50 states, but also considered the gold standard approach for proving a sweep’s knowledge and expertise #ChimneyFacts

There are few things that can make the inside of the home more uncomfortable than a cold draft coming from the fireplace. The best solution to preventing cold drafts is installing a quality chimney damper. Chimney dampers act much like a door for your chimney sealing off the area from the rest of the living space! #ChimneyDampers #KeepColdAirOutside #LowerHeatingBills
