Treating Traps This Time of Year

So I got some new traps last week and I cant get them to rust! HA! I boiled them, and now I'm Stuck! Just dye them and see what happens? Will the dye stick?

There are enough animals in the woods and birds in the air for all of us...

just use them. the rust that forms on them will actually make it easier to dye them next year.

or if they were conibears you could wrap the triggers and latching surface with duck tape. Then spray paint them. Allow them to dry and then remove duck tape.

oh and don't forget to wash them with dish soap to remove the oil that is on them from the manufacturing process.

if you want them to rust quick, spray them with viniger mixed water, should rust good in a day or so.

Re: Treating Traps This Time of Year

If you REALLY want to get them in service quickly, run them through the dishwasher! Use normal amount of detergent, and the heated dry option if your dishwasher has it. They will come out with a slight coat of rust, ready to go. Then either dye and wax, or if land traps especially, just wax, and go.
