However, with a little bit of research and planning, even a common suburban backyard can be a perfect place for beehives. You’ll just need a few supplies to get started: some wood, the bees and, you guessed it, mason jars! Check out the video to learn what the steps are so you can get started on mason jar beekeeping the easy way.

The jars will get hot easily because there is no ventilation through them. It is best to keep them away from the sunlight or put a screen over them.Don’t allow your bees into the area surrounding the jars. Otherwise, they will build a mess for you to clean up, and they may decide it’s easier to construct comb between the jars rather than in the jars.Always sanitize the mason jars before using them to keep your bees.
