I have read it somewhere, but have forgotten---how many bees in a 2 or3# package?....Duh...
Approx. 3500 per lb.
Usually they shake in a few extra bees to account for those that will die in transit as Iddee said 3500 per pound, so 3 lb package approx 10500 sounds like a lot until you figure how many won't be aronud when the first new bees hatch out, probably 25% to 35% will be gone.
It really depends on how many are flying while the box is sitting on the scale :shock: .
