Isn't that the case with 90% of these guys looking for stuff "locally"? Even with shipping its almost always cheaper going through a trap supplier

I can agree with most of that. My gopher traps cost $8 at the local hardware store, but you can buy them from Cumberlands and practically everywhere else from $4.95-$5.95. The only thing I can think of off hand which would be cheaper is sardines, or other things of this sort for coon/mink bait.

I just put it directly in the bait. Can remember measurements right off hand though.

You can use 20 mule team borax when in a bind also for a preservative for bait making applications when you need it and it does a good job. Most groceries should carry the powder there.
