Hello, I am brand new to trapping. I emailed you earlier this year for guidance on how to set traps for Prairie Dogs and your suggestions have paid big dividends. However, I made the mistake of taking my traps directly from the box to the field without treating. I just now read that dye and wax is used to condition the traps prior to setting. Now i notice that my traps are a bit rusty.
Can you also provide this newbie with info on how to salvage his traps? Do you have a product or products to recommend for this purpose. It’s looks like I will be trappoing for quite some time. There are many more animals than I imagined when I first started.
