I plan to have some swarm lures ready in about 4 weeks.

I have 6 of the ingredients but the 7th is coming from Africa and I am still waiting for it.

All 7 ingredients are organic hence why I am waiting for the last one rather than buying from europe off the shelf.

I will have a few for members to try out and give feedback.
The cost for 2 will be the cost of postage only,about 50 pence for 2.

Admin it sounds quite exotic this lure are you sure it is safe to use and if I was to spill some on me can you assure me that I will not be plagued by 18-21 year old nimfo maniacs chacing after me?:hat:
