With a couple elbows it runs a little over 5 feet where it is now.I have it sloped slightly downhill and an elbow outside to keep strong wind gusts from blowing straight through the hive.In summer when there busy,you can hear them clawing their way through the pipe.

Lol, I know what you mean. My tube is only about a foot and a half long. Half pvc, half clear tube. I like having the clear tube section to watch them come in and out, and the clear tube is a little more quiet, but their little feet get rather loud in there. Probably wiping off their feet before they come inside, lol.

I was just wondering how long you can make the tube before the bees have a problem with it.

I'm working on plans for my OH base, any ideas or pictures anyone has?

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

This is my ob hive before the bees were installed. The white tube along the wall runs to the outside.

That is a nice looking set up you have buzzbee. Is the hives under the observation hive functional or just a cool lookig stand ?

I went back to look at that again. It looks great! Did you make it yourself? What type of wood/what type of finish is on it?
