In the wild butterflies find their greatest source of sodium, essential minerals and vitamins from wild animal urine puddles and urine-soaked leaves. Now you can bring this natural butterfly attractant to your garden with Butterfly Lure - pure urine from the wild. We have been in the urine business a long time, but we always get excited when we discover a new use for this incredibly renewable resource!
Directions: Pour a shallow pool of ButterflyLure into a colorful dish and place on the ground, stump or fence post in a place that gets a lot of direct sunlight. The butterflies will find it quite soon. Replenish as needed.
