Wine Mop

Hi all, for those who wern't there last night there was an exciting innovation to the moth trapping experience at Hardcastle crags. Introducing - The "Wine Mop". This is a mop head soaked in an enticing recipe of Red wine, Black treacle, Dark Brown Sugar and Vanilla Essense. It was hoisted up into the trees on a long string to aid dispersal of the sugary scent. What moth could resist? Results - Two Skinner type light traps. approx 140 moths, The Wine Mop. Nil. I will keep trying. Winston

Hi all,
When might you be going up to the Craggs again? With or without the wine mop?! Christine
