I was talking to my uncle about trapping but all he told me to do to a new trap is to spray them with wd-40. What do yall think about this?

imo- no. it smells, its oily, and when it gets dirty, it gets gummy.

If you want your catch rate to go up, why would you want to spray oil on a trap? The way to go cannot be over stressed and that is to get and keep your traps and equipment as scent free as possible. Why spray them with oil????
