How many queens

Hallo again

Getting ready for the nuptial flights in Denmark. I'm just wandering how many queen i should catch to be fairly sure to get one that is mateded but not over catching.
On one hand i want to be sure to get to get a matede queen on the other hand i just want one colleny. so i don't want to end up with a lot of queens starting collonis that i have to release (thinking that the risk of releasing a disease is minimal as long as i haven't fed the collenis yet. and release them were i found the queens :roll: ).

every input is apriciated

Best regards Rolf
