Logwood Trap Dye Concentrate 8 oz. Helps prevent rust and overcome trap odor. One package will mix with 6 gallons of water will treat three dozen traps.

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.

I've been using this product for a couple of years-after a bad experience with another product. I think it works best in boiling water. Lasts a long time!

This product works great. That's basically all there is to it. If you want jet black traps and quick application this is the dye for you.

Would have given it 5 stars, but in hindsight should have used the logwood chips instead. Leaves a black powder residue on everything, chips do not.

It turns your traps dark black. I only have one problem though. I have bought this several times and it came one time busted. Its so cheap I didn't worry about getting a new pack. I just went to Field and Stream and got some more.
