1,000-5,000. Nobody really knows that thousands of bees live in a single hive. Think of them as brave warriors fighting for the survival of their country. It makes me want to help them out! SERIOUSLY!

In the average hive there is one queen, between 20,000 and 60,000 workers depending on the time of year, and up to about two or three hundred drones.

How do you get rid of hornets nest?

Very carefully......After the sun has gone down or very early in the morning just at twighlight (bees are not active during these times) and check to see if you can easily get within 20 feet of the nest if you can then make sure you have a clear path from the nest to a safe location,then just estimate the size of the nest if the nest is about the size of a football or smaller then you will need one 20oz can of wasp/hornet spray that shoots a long stream.If the nest is a big nest such as the size of a small watermellon then you will need two cans of spray....*Once you have your cans and your path is clear then wait about 3 hours after the sun has gone down and go out to the nest (if you need a light to see do not shine the light directly on the nest). Get into a position where you can see the bottom of the nest where the main entry hole is located ((do not stand directly under the nest)) then shoot the spray directly into the entry hole for atleast 5 seconds,then while still spraying move the stream up to the top of the nest and back down to the bottom of the nest in a quick but steady motion until you run out of spray,if its a larger nest quickly begin spraying with the 2nd can in the same manor...then quickly move to your safe location ...hornets nest are made of a paper like material and the nest will soak up the spray and kill all the bees inside...if some bees escaped the soaked nest will kill them when they try to return...leave the nest for a few days and check to see if there is any activity if not then remove the nest.If you cant get close enough to the nest then call a professionalSome hornets nest can get huge upto the size of a large watermellon and can hold a few thousand hornets,in such cases as this it is best to get a professional. Now if you are in a very rural area and cant reach the nest then these small or large nests can be taken care of if you or a family member is an avid hunter or target shooter. If the nest is in a hedge row or in the surrounding trees then a few rounds from a 12 gauge shot gun will destroy any hornets nest (please observe firearms safety). Also do not shoot the nest during the day,hornets have a real talent for locating the direction of anything that hits their nest.
