As I am new to this aspect of bee keeping, are there certain times of the year that are better then others? I am in a rural setting and the neighbors etc say they have not seen a swarm in several years. Don't know if they are not looking or the bees just are not in this area. I am working on a cut out now, but would like to get into this aspect of bee keeping more. Thanks for any insight. Tom

Thank You Dave. I did not even think to check on Marion Eilis's writings. He helped me years ago. Thank You for the links. Tom

Put an ad on craigslist and call the local emergency dispatch centers (but don't use 911 to ask to get on the swarm list - they probably don't like that) also call around to the pest control/exterminators in the area. I've caught 6 swarms this year and most have just been word of mouth.
