How do beekeepers count how many bees are in a hive?

By volume, weight, or space occupied on frames. The size or weight difference between strains of honey bees – Italian, Russian, Carniolan, Caucasian - is minimal. So a half cup of bees is about 300, a pound is about 3500 and a densely covered deep frame is 1500 or more.
