Re: Trap Wax
Nice job. Traps look good.
<span style="color: #660000"><span style="font-weight: bold">When waxing I had some left over pieces of hull stuck to my traps that ultimately were then left in the wax pot. Also some color leached off as well, but that's to be expected I think.
do those of you who wax their own traps filter their hot wax when finish? or just leave the dirt, hulls, grass what ever in the pot and fire it up again next year?</span></span>
When you take traps from boiling dye, hose them off immediately to rinse off excess dye and residue. Can be placed on plywood or paved driveway, to rinse off. Then hang to dry before waxing.
Your traps will leave less dye and residue in the wax pot with a good rinsing.
