Well, they can't get through #8 hardware cloth (8 to an inch) they can't get through #7 hardware cloth unless there is a bent wire. They CAN barely squeeze through #6 hardware cloth, consistently enough that you can count on bees getting through. The workers can squeeze through #5 consistently and will, while the queen and drones cannot. The queen and the drones can get through #4 hardware cloth.
