Beekeeping in Southwest US references?
Been looking into possibly getting into backyard beekeeping, but I'm doing my research before pulling the trigger.
Something that's been slightly tripping me up is that most of the documentation / writing out there tends to be very… for a lack of a better term, temperate-climate-centric? This isn't a problem generally, given that is where majority of beekeeping seems to be done, but I'm wondering if there's any recommended reading for someone in a more arid clime.
The area I'm in (Sonoran Desert) certainly has people keeping bees, and there are beekeeping organizations out here that I plan on touching base with, but I'd like some more relevant reading to familiarize myself with (if such a thing exists).
