buckwheat hulls are alright. But remember, if you're getting a lot of rain, you're probably also getting wind, which means buckwheat hulls will get gullied out, or blown away. When using, you still need to cover with a light coating of natural soil to hold in place, but mud is mud. Your trap should still work in mud, the problem is when it freezes. I recommend peatmoss, or using a commercial antifreeze for those situations.

I used the hulls last winter and never had a problem. If they start to blow away in the wind I take a spray bottle with me and moisten them,that usually does the trick.
