after season trap care??

now that the season is over, what should I do to my traps to keep them in good working order. I have them in a bucket now and they have already began to rust.

they are not all covered with wax, because I sprayed them all off at the car wash, which blew most of the wax off.

thanks for the help!!!

Re: after season trap care??

i wash mine off real good (pressure washer) and blow all the mud and crud off them and antifreeze etc ive used that will eat metal....then hang them up till fall when im ready to dye, wax and store...

they need a light rust on them to dye them anyways so i dont care if they rust some...just dont want the mud and antifreeze on them all year...

if any need work and i want them to bare metal i will give them a vinegar soak and take them down to bare clean metal...
