Re: I would like to be a Commercial Beekeeper
How are you set financially? Do you have the equipment necessary to expand? Do you need to make income from your bees after almond pollination?
If you have the money, you can buy equipment and queens and split everything not intending to make a crop of honey. Split after almonds and let them build up a cpl rounds of brood and split again. You'll probably have to feed them syrup and protein patties to help them build brood, bees, and comb. And then get them built up for next Winter. I'm sure there are others who could advise you further.
Maybe you have some more specific questions?
