About how many bees do you need in a mini mating box the 2 frame styrofoam type. Thanks RDH...

I'm assuming your talking about the ultra small 2 frame box that uses the 1/3 length frames.

Anyway, I've always heard that you can use a cupful of bees. 8-16oz..

If you are taking about the Apidea styrofoam mini mating nuc, they hold 3 frames. We stock them with a mostly full Coca-Cola can of bees, about 8 ounces. Pepsi is fine too.
