      Normally honey is measured in weight and not in volume, so it is really hard to answer your question.
      I would say, instead, that a colony of more than 40,000 honeybees can collect more than 1 kg of nectar a day if there are good flower blossoms nearby. The same 1 kg of nectar will then be transformed into honey by the bees.
