Local feral survivors in eight frame medium boxes.

The cluster size varies by:
1) how late the swarm or colony get started
2) race of bees
3) success of the nectar gathering for the year

I would judge stores and space by the size of the cluster.

The size will shrink throughout the winter until they start rearing brood again.
