You want to get that taken care of ASAP!
Our local news aired astory last week about ahouse that exploded- presumably due to an overabundance of methane caused by a blocked vent.

Good luck to you.

Maybe if you poured Drano down the vent it would dissolve the nest. But be alert to where the stuff would leak/drain to.

You can get 3' long drill bits. Worst case, you could drill a hole through the ice and bees nest to allow gas to escape.
