Bee Mesh to Bee Proof Chimneys

Why do chimneys need protecting from honeybees?

Honeybees like to nest in dry cavities such as chimneys. They are a huge nuisance, particularly as a colony can comprise several thousand bees. Not only will the bees be noisy but they can get into your home and, after the bees have gone, the remaining beeswax is a fire hazard.

It’s very difficult to remove a nest and bees from a chimney. PEST UK would prefer not to destroy any bees but, as a last resort, to remove bees and their nest from a chimney we may have to use insecticide. Not only does this destroy the bees in the chimney but it could contaminate bees from other colonies. The beeswax will need to be removed along with any debris from the nest as this is flammable so you will need to get a chimney sweep to clean your chimney.

Proofing your chimney to prevent bees establishing a nest in the first place is the most practical and bee-friendly solution.

How do we prevent bees from accessing a chimney?

One of our technicians will install bee mesh at the top of your chimney. The mesh is fine enough to prevent bees from getting through it. They will also check that there are no other ways bees can access the chimney and seal any cracks in the masonry and leading surrounding the stack.

The best time to install bee mesh in chimneys is in the winter and early spring before the honeybees start to look for new sites to build their nests.
