The SwingViewTM

SWINGS 180 DEGREES, WALL TO WALL

viewable both sides

    Truly an original work of art, the SwingViewTM is our most popular Observation Hive model. It mounts on the wall like a painting or a shadowbox and glides effortlessly 180 degrees right to left in its wall plate. You will see both sides of your colony. Bees route, almost mysteriously, out the back of the wall plate, through the wall, to the outside. This tasteful Honey Bee world will be part of your family and will amaze your friends and guests. The SwingView is for any outside wall. The Observation Hive Case removes from the wall plate to the outdoors for installing bees or servicing the hive.  This is the best observation bee hive for sale on the market today.

    The SwingViewTM observation hive includes a full featured Hive Case with wall mount pivot plate, outside entrance unit and thru wall pipe. The bees enter and exit through the lower part of the wall plate then through the wall to the outside entrance unit.

    To remove the SwingViewTM Observation Hive Case to the outdoors for servicing: close the Hive Case door and remove the Hive Case from the wall plate by removing the upper pivot bolt, then remove the Case to the oudoors. All Models come with installation and hive management instructions. 

    Note; 6 to 8 frames of bees, comb, and honey can bee heavy. You may want help removing your Observation Hive Case to the outdoors.


    Wax foundation, frames, bees and glass are not included.   

Please Note: Observation Hive Cases are presently shipped without glass. Please purchase glass locally. Simple installation instructions are included with the Hive Case, though we suggest that you take the glass frames to a glass vendor and have your glass vendor install and seal glass.

For Public Exhibit Centers and areas with "out of control tonka trucks" we recommend 3/16" or 1/4" Laminated safety glass.

Your order will be shipped in 14 days or less, allowing for assembly and order volume. All hive orders are shipped via UPS standard ground service.  You will receive an e-mail notification and UPS tracking number when when your order is shipped.

 

   All Hive Cases are notched for Langstroth style deep frames.
