As much as I hated to do it, I needed an exterminator.

Normally, the two of us would call a live bee removal expert when the two of us had problems with honey bees on our property, and last month, as much as I hated to do it, I had to call an exterminator, the honey bees had gotten into the chimney and nested over Spring… During the summer, the two of us didn’t need to use the chimney, and the two of us weren’t aware of the problem the two of us would soon have, when fall began and the temperatures began dropping, the two of us often used the fireplace to put a burst of heat in the cabin in the day. When the fireplace was lit in mid-July, the two of us realized there was something wrong. The two of us only had the chimney cleaned every other year. The two of us wished this was the year it had been cleaned. The two of us lit the fire and smoke started pouring into the house, however my partner evaluated the flue, but it was okay. The two of us had a clog in the chimney and it smelled terrible. The two of us called the chimney sweep and asked to have our chimney cleaned. What he found was not what the two of us expected, however a big hive of honey bees had taken residence in the chimney. The two of us had to call an exterminator to make sure the bees were dead before the two of us could have the chimney cleaned. The exterminator said the two of us had over a thoUnited Statesnd honey bees in the chimney and it was the burnt honey the two of us were smelling; He said there had to be many gallons of honey that was going to end up in the hearth, unless the two of us could have something inside the hearth to catch the honey and dead honey bees he could not get, as they oozed out.
