The last time I bought some red mineral salt it was around $6-$7 or so. Not expensive. Just buy you a white salt block, those work well for attractants too. Find a good place where the soil is loose and dig a hole and burry it. Make sure it's a place that will get exposed to the rain too.

As far as attractants, you can try peanut butter. I hear it stirs their curiousity some. Haven't tried it though. Cheap.
