From what I've read, African bees (I assume that's what type of bees are in their area) prefer less space than European bees. So that may make a difference if one knows what type of bee it is. Rough estimates are that European bees like a volume of approx 40 liters (10-11 gallon) whereas African bees are happy with half that. I am not a beekeeper yet, so take my words with a grain of salt.
