    Has anyone had success using a mason jar hive, such as a summer hawk 12 jar hive sold at Costco and other places.Just wondering how it worked out?

    looks like another waste of money gimmick, just like the flow hives...if you wanted to try you can make it yourself easy, just use an empty super and a piece of wood with circles cut out to fit the mason jars..

    It looks neat, but if it doesn't work then it would be a waste of money for sure. I might try to make one for a test just to see how it turns out.

    it should be easy to make, just make the board that the jars sit on top to fit in a standard super and stack it on..
