New queens

New queens make a huge difference, a friend tried to graft some new queens early in spring but they all failed. So there were no new queens in the hives. It now is showing in his honey take. The amount of honey is very poor. At the club hives the queens were all new in December. The queens all took off producing bees. There was a single box and now, 1 month later, there is a couple of boxes of honey. It's just the power of a new queen. With a honey flow the new queen just goes for it. With more bees - more honey.
