    ​Thanks for any replies

    Wotcha

    As far as I am aware there is no need to boil them - just place in a remote plastic canister in the sun and it should start working.
    It may be that warm/hot water at the outset speeds things up............
    Leave top off to allow gases that build up to escape.

    Ciao

    fox stink yup it works and it stinks boil em up for around 3/4 hrs til just a soup in the wifes best pot use in a spray bottle but Remeber don't get it on any thing you wish to keep, but a quick dash in your mates car air vent is worth the slagging off

    what do you spray it on?
    ​do you just use it instead of bait?

    I have a batch ready to go, the secret is to leav it in the sun in a demijohn or similar for several weeks after boiling, it will go black and thicken, it can then be diluted to use, beware it STINKS. Do not get it on your clothes or hands. Be careful when shooting over it as it attracts badgers as well :-)

    One day I want to be as wonderful as my dogs think i am .....

    +1 did the same with the first one I ever boiled out, just to make it worse also used a good stew pan & did it at tea time just as her who must be obeyed came home.
    unless you can prove it beyond all reasonable doubt, it wasn't me. If you can prove it then you must be mistaken
