Beer Butterfly bait

A wonderful brew to attract butterfly's to your garden

1 can beer
2 cups molasses
2 pounds dark brown sugar
2 pounds very ripe fruit

Put it all in a gallon ice cream pail with a loose fitting lid. And allow to sit in the sun all day. The loose lid will allow the fermenting gasses to escape. Then move to a storage area in the shade. Do not keep where children or pets can get into it.

Using a old paint brush dab it on rocks in your rock garden or on a fence. Reapply every couple of days. Put in the same place each time, near flowers is ideal.
