Wine Ropes

You will need
Bottle of cheap red wine (definitely not for you!)
1Kg sugar
1m lengths of thick cord, light rope made from absorbent material. Strips of fabric
or muslin can also be used.

Heat the wine and stir in and dissolve the sugar. Allow to cool and soak the lengths of rope. Drape the “wine ropes” over low branches, bushes or fences just before dusk and check for moths by torch-light for the first
two hours of darkness.
