Re: Question about speeding up rusting
I never rust new traps. I use them the first season. All I do is get the oil off of them, make any mods I want to make and boil/dye and wax. I don't rust them until the second season. After the first season I take them to the car wash and clean them good and let them hang outside until they get the preferred amout of rust and then put them in the shed until I'm ready to dye and wax for thier second season. Rusting trap is not needed to catch critters. Only to hold the dye.
Honesty is my only excuse.
