ebay is the cheapest I've found.

Scott
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Paid $36 for 32 ounce that should last years.

If you want it sooner or don't want to order it, most health food stores have it in 6 or 8 oz. bottles.  It has been several years since I bought some so I don't have any idea how much it is locally.

I make my own extracts from my garden lemon grass, to bait my styro cooler swarm lures. Chop it up finely w/ scissors & even finer w/ elec. coffee grinder. My solution of choice is cheap vodka. You can sometime buy lemon grass at asian markets as well. I used this site to prepare extracts:

Dr. Standley Supplements and Herbal Preperations

The cheap vodka I use seems to soak into the coffee ground lemon grass thouroughly & lasts longer than the olive oil which can putrify in heat of car despite a colored glass container. I heard of a bee keep that uses q-tips rubberbanded to frames which I'm trying as well. One tip has lemon grass extract & othr queen juice. Will see how works this year. Last 2010 lured 3 swarms using only lemon grass outta 6 baited, & 3 using old comb. Fantastic swarm catching & Apis mellifica season 2011 all.
Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.  Proverbs 16:24
