Hi. Actually, one of the most difficult things for any wild animal is to maintain a proper salt balance; there are relatively few good natural sources of salts and other essential minerals. MANY insects will be attracted to urine, as it contains a fair number of such substances in a concentrated form - the same basic reason that so many insects are attracted to human perspiration (and also the basis for the phenomenon known as "puddling" - well known in butterflies).
