If your wanting to get some rust on them, hang them out anytime.

Once that crap dries, it's water/rust proof, if not, it can wash off.

if your speed dip is tacky in a few days you need to add more solvent, it should dry in a few hours of high temps.
lot of people make the mistake of getting the mix right and then using it in hot temps without replacing solvent as it evaporates from there container.It is amazing how much high flash solvent can evaporate in an hour leaving the dip to thick.

I don't have that problem with pump gas. Dry to touch in couple hours. Of course I do mine when 100 degrees and no humidity.

I use latern fuel, maybe that trick to it, find a day when got time an hot , breezy lower humidity, usally hot days are humid. To much rain in forecast, hopefully next weekend, memorial day weekend , is speed dip the best rust preservative? Once it on traps. Pretty much stuck with it, I wouldn't use on k- 9 trapping, some say work, others don't, for best success, I not recommend on them, I use on water traps, land connibears, some stakes that rusty, u can see rust show though the dip in rusted trap, I have no traps that are weaken by rust or more surface.

It is the best for me and what I do. All of my 220's get dipped and only do them every 2 or 3 years.I am not afraid of rust either.And yes I treated k-9 traps for several years as well,and never noticed a difference in catches compared to dying. I don't even think about using speed dip until August. Doing them now with the high humidity and are bound to be a sticky mess guy.

I've always done mine with non-ethanol gas, mixed thinner than what the can says, I don't remember the ratio because I'm still using the same bucket of mixed dip that I started with 3 years ago. It's dry by the end of the day for me.

So dipping on any days with some humidity an under 80s for temp is not good ? I usally hang outside for 3 days, bring in cellar an at times with humidity in summer, trap a lil sticky, until fall, when cooler. Weather comes

So you been on this web site since 2008.......and still have a speed dip question ? Or am I missing something ? Just dip and hang...you cant do anything about the weather.....and trapping season is 6 months away....I think you’ll be ok.

I use it 2 gal of high octane(93) to one can dip. I dip no later than july and hang them out all summer under an awning. In our high humidity it takes some time to totally dry.
