It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.

Hey Baily,
I found it at an essential oil place at the Mall near me.
Actually it's called perfume oil. The number on the bottle is 1-800-900-aroma (2766) "hope this is ok Beemaster"
The bees go nuts for it. I can't remember what I paid 6 bucks or somthing.

What are you going to use it for ...... swarm lure?

Betterbee has it in 1 and .5 oz size. Also GNC Health food stores carry it. Runs about $3 for a half or $5+ for an ounce . Price similar at both places but cheaper at GNC if close so you don't pay shipping.

Saltcreek, love your avatar!

Thanks. I found it long ago, haven't seen it anywhere else and seemed unique. Thought about using it on a "Buy American Honey" lable.

Is it your design? Would look neat on a shirt.

No, not my design. I found it on a "free use" clipart page years ago that I think is no longer there. Kind of makes you smile when you look at it.
