Post #5205050

Hello all... yesterday I came home to a swarm of bees coming down my chimney into my house. I could hear thousands of them up there, so I made a smoky fire to make them want to leave. They went back out the chimney top, but are now in a huge mound (3 feet across) on the outside of my stucco chimney. They are totally non aggressive, I didn't recieve one sting when surrounded by them in the house. To my untrained eye they look like the honey bee type, not wasp or yellow jacket. How can I convince them to go somewhere else?
