What's the idea behind dying them red? That is red right? I'm color blind, so I can't always tell.

brown, looks sort of red until it dries.

I also use black or a mix of both. I don't think it matters.

I alwyas use coleman fuel, 1 part dip to 5 or 6 parts coleman fuel.

Both work I am told.

Dave Plueger on here recomended gasoline one time. Dave has caught more coon than I ever will so I tend to beleive him.

The key (in my experience) is to dip on a HOT SUNNY and DRY (ie very low humidity day). A breeze is a big plus also to get them dry quick.

I filter (through an oil funnel) the unused dip and store it indoors for the following season.

How do you get it off? That layer will not protect your traps forever.

I've heard vinegar would work,but I don't see why you couldn't wash them off and just dip the again?

Easiest way to get it off is to make catches ! Then a quick rinse and scrubbing and previously dipped traps our simply dipped again.

Dip can easily be stored from year to year in a 5 gallon pail with an air tight lid. Stir thoroughly, perhaps a little more fuel , and re-dip and let them thoroughly dry.

I also prefer Coleman fuel and 76 Chevy is spot on with over diluting and trying to utilize summer days with good heat with little humidity.

How do you get new traps to rust before you dip them?

The best way I found to rust my traps was to dip them in speed dip, wait 3 weeks before you realize its never going to dry, then soak all your traps in vinegar for 3-4 days, power wash the speed dip off and then let your traps sit for a few days.

They will be nice and rusted up for you to use something that works other than speed dip.

A cycle thru the dishwasher works awesome. Completely removes all oil and they get a slight etch (rust) from the drying process.

Speed dip is like painting an automobile. You can give 2 individuals the exact same product and get drastically different results. One guy will make certain the traps our clean, stir all his components thoroughly , apply multiple thinner coats, and will make certain the excess dip is shook off so it does not pool.

The other will dump it on the car hood, push it around with a garden rake, and then later claim he got a bad gallon of paint.

... or you can simply dip your traps in speed dip year after year and make things simple for yourself smile

Land sakes alive... I swore I'd never repeat myself in another speed-dip thread, at least ten or twelve speed-dip threads ago. Reckon I'll try to hold myself to that restraint thru the next fifteen - twenty new threads between now and November

I read your whole thread on the matter, all 9 pages. I couldn't find one definitive answer that everyone agreed on, but just following the instructions worked out great for me.

As for getting em to rust I just ran a hose straight off the water heater to get some scalding hot water into a plastic tub and dumped dish soap in there. Put the traps in, Shook it around every once in a while to agitate it and pulled em out after 30 minutes. Let them sit overnight and dipped the next afternoon. They work great now and are not sticky at all. Haven't been out drying for very long at all yet either.
