How many bees are in an average size bees nest?


Wiki User

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.
