I just got a job lined up for harvest and this is when i do most of my trap prep. However i have this week off. I thought i could get ahead and get my traps dyed, but i thought i herd before that the humidity didnt go well wkth the dye. I use the longwood dye, and it is very humid where i am. Will the humidity mess with the dye or will i be fine doing it now?

I would think boiling in logwood would be fine. The cold dips that use gas are the ones that I have heard of people having trouble with drying.

You should be fine with the logwood dye. Just don't wax em.
