I just got a call from a lady that has bees coming in her house.

They are comeing in from around the gas log insert and if she listens she can hear them in the chimney. I dont know what to tell her she said that the bees started coming in Friday and they used the logs all winter so she would not think they were there last year

I have run into this once so far the first one the lady didnt use the insert and didnt seem interested in getting the gone that much so I said it was a cool place to get swarms and left it that was just down the road from me.

This one she wants them gone

If they just moved in,  I would put a trap out cone on the entrance, and there is a good chance they will abscond within a week.

No ifs about it. They did just move in. If you can get a cone on quick, before they store food or have brood, they will be out within days, queen and all.

PS. If they had been there awhile, they would have closed off the holes to the interior and be using the outside exit only.

I saw one once without a box. They had hung comb from the wire cone until they had a solid mass around the entrance and could go back and forth freely. The queen was still in the wall.
