Yes we lured 3 or 4 with an Emperor Moth pheromone. It's the best way to see them otherwise you're thrashing round across miles of moorland in the hope you happen upon one. The lures can be kept in your freezer for a 4 or 5 years so keep them fresh. First half of May can be the better month if you want higher numbers.
