Ok I have a friend who has bees between the liner and chimney in their house I am going to see it tomorrow but was wondering about some ideas. Last year someone tried trapping them out with no luck and we are wanting to do it with possibly no demo I was wondering about setting up a trap and maybe trying to push them I out using like a fume board approach. Any ideas are welcome in the box or out of the box but I would love the free bees

Don't trap. Tell your friend to bite the bullet and do a demo. Even if the trap-out is successful he will still need to do a demo to remove the comb, honey and unhatched brood or learn to deal with the rotten smell. Believe me it stinks.

If you do a proper trap out the only thing left will be empty combs.

Where is there entrance? in the side of the brick or down the liner.
If down the liner, then it means the chimney need repairs anyway, demo.
