More a curiosity than anything else, but exploring methods of queen rearing for small (less than 5) apiary. In the process of making a cell builder, if I were to temporarily remove my queen from the most productive hive, how much of an impact would it have on honey yield? Other than the time that queen is absent and not laying, and therefore those brood would not be available when they would have become field bees. So is this noticeable? Thanks
