Instructions For Use: Remove grease or oil from new traps. Traps should be rusted before coloring. Remove wax from previously treated traps. Use 9 oz bottle of trap dye to 5 gallons of water. Heat water to a boil, then lower to simmering point. Place traps in the dye and leave them in until black. Traps may be left in overnight. Coloring solution should be hot before removing traps to be waxed.

1. You will need to wash your traps with a degreaser of some type or lye to remove all the oil and grease that is on the trap out of the box. If you are using rusty traps then take a steel wire brush to them very lightly.

2. Take your traps outside and leave them exposed for a week or two to get a light coat of rust on them. If they are not rusting fast enough you can spray them with vinegar to speed up the process.

3. Before dipping traps in dye solution make sure you put a nail or stick in between the jaws to hold them open.

4. Cold Dye Method: Take your trap dye and mix with water in a bucket or container of some type. Put your traps in the container and leave for a few days. Once the desired color is obtained remove your traps and hang to dry. The benefit of this method is that you do not have to build a fire and watch it for an hour.

4. Traditional Method: Add your dye ( 1 Pack per 6 gallons of water) to your container. Bring your water to a rolling boil. Make sure you have a heat brick/stone on the bottom of the container so that the traps do not rest on the bottom. Let water temperature come down to a simmer and then put your traps in. Make sure you have a wire attached to make it easier to remove. Allow traps to seat for 30 mins to 1 hour. I would check them until you get the desired color.

5. Once desired color is obtained simply remove your traps and hang them up to dry.

Note: Dying traps helps seal the trap so you do not have to deal with rust in the future. As with any piece of equipment if you want to keep it for an extended period of time and have it work properly then you do not need it to be rusty. Rust will slow your traps down and they will not last as long.

Logwood trap dye
I am an avid outdoorsman and enjoy hunting, fishing, trapping and snaring where it is permitted. Just FYI to those of you that snare as well. I started dying my snares and it made a significant difference in the amount of game that I started catching.
ProsNice Bronze/black finish when dyed correctly
ConsSlight odor that eventually goes away

Wasn't worth the money.
Good thing this dye was on sale. I followed directions explicitly that were on the bottle, but the dye didn't dye anything, but my hands handling the traps the next day. Pretty disappointed in Fleming Traps.
Merchant Response:I would recommend decreasing the traps and letting them sit out and rust slightly. This will improve the dye job.
