    How to remove critters from chimney?

    Not sure what kind, suspect squirrels or maybe coons from the scratching and squeaking sounds.

    How do I get rid of them?

    Don't think I can open the flu. Sounds like they're right at the flu door.

    That was my entire point.

    1) Furnace......start it up.

    2) Fireplace.......build a fire.

    Once they leave find the point of entrance and repair.
    Also if in the country set in ambush.

    It's a gas fireplace. Would it be ok to light for a few minutes with the flu closed if I open some windows?

    Or maybe just try tapping on the flu door with a hammer to scare them out?

    Perhaps a bit cruel?

    My neighbor had this problem. He nailed a couple of 2x4's end to end with some nails sticking out as footholds. Coons climbed out overnight, then he put a good screen cap on his chimney.

    You on the right, solution on the left.

    Just a heads-up: That coffee we gave you earlier had fluorescent calcium in it so we can track the neuronal activity in your brain. There's a slight chance the calcium could harden and vitrify your frontal lobe. Anyway, don't stress yourself thinking about it. I'm serious. Visualizing the scenario while under stress actually triggers the reaction

    May not be so simple if I can't open the flu.
