I found this recipe in a Beta Sigma Phi cookbook my mom gave me for Christmas many years ago. I haven't tried it because I live in a condo and don't have my own backyard. This mixture attracts Butterflies by day and Moths by night.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients in a large jar or crock.
  2. Cover loosely and place in the sun. Let ferment for 1 day. Make sure cover is loose fitting as it expands with fermentation.
  3. Store in shady area after fermenting.
  4. Dab mixture on posts, rocks, or tree trunks with an old paint brush. Results will improve with time. Butterflies seem to find it more easily on a large rock in a flower bed.
