How far down the chimney are they? If you can post a picture of the hive inside the chimney I could give you good advice to get it handled. A trap out on a chimney can be tricky! If the flue isn't properly closed off you can end up wit bees inside the house. Not kicking on a trap out cause I do love trap outs. This wouldn't be a standard trap out it would be more like a transfer from an old school box hive .
