There is a patent pending application for an artificial beehive (US 2014/0370781 A1).

However, there is a very similar patent from 1939 (US 2,223,561 A).

Is the newer application patentable?

  • There has already been a third party submission for US 2,223,561 A as prior art (February 20, 2015). Source: USPTO Public Pair. It has been added to the case file and will be available to the examiner. – vallismortis Sep 1 '15 at 1:39
