I generally refer to a swarm size by comparing it to something also like a volleyball or whatever. I know they physical size of the swarm cluster will vary but I'm wondering if anyone can offer size vs number of bees estimations?
I often wonder this too... but I think the problem comes with different temperature fluctuations. If it's hot then they are more loosely clustered, vs if it is cooler and they cluster more tightly together.
