Let it sit in the basement overnight then moved to the sun for a bit to taint.....
Just checked it and there are VERY small maggots crawling on the outside edge of the lid... not inside the container. There are a couple that got inside but only a couple.
I wiped the lip off and tried to get a couple maggots out, I put plastic rap over the container then put the lid on, hopefully this helps so I can taint it for another day or so.
It smells kind of sweet....... is that a good thing?

Freeze it for a few days then bag it up and fold then tie the opening well.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

The sweeter the better, do yourself a favor and add raw honey. Dark caro works well too


Common sense catches alot of fur..

Good advice on the maggots and the sweets ....predators love sweets. I am NOT a bait/ lure maker but I do like to play around. I add a bit of dark cane sugar to my baits and the predators love it.

I make maple syrup and have a gallon or so at the end I wouldnít use myself so I wonít sell it. Iím thinking mice and ground beaver and a bait solution. Per each gallon adding a cup of sludge syrup. Too much or too little? btw the syrup still smells ok.

Iím thinking the syrup would have great potential as a gray fox and raccoon bait....dps
