Well it happened; three of my hives have swarmed. Now I have a new queen in those hives, it is my understanding that there will not be any new bees hatched until the virgin queen takes a matting flight and then at least 21 days after that. So it looks like I’m kind of out of luck for honey in those three hives for the rest of the year. Is my assumption correct?
Any thoughts

most of the time they leave a lot of capped and uncapped brood..sometimes they do not leave any like dummies....so you should still see some orientation flights and bees hatching, then there will be a slow lul, but not too much IMHO
