    I've read on some American forums that diesel soaked corn is very effective. Not sure of the health risks to the pigs or anyone eating them afterwards though.

    I've been using whole Maize with Stokholm tar rubbed on the trees around.

    Failing that you can use a rag/hessian sack soaked in diesel.

    You can see the black tar on this tree, they love rubbing on it.

    I heard the diesel was to keep the corn from being eaten by deer and other wildlife?

    We helped solway stalker mix some and took it to the feeding sites but he made us sign then the official secrets act so couldn't devulge the content but it had a very nice aroma Certainly no diesel involved !

    Sow cobs/nuts may be worth a try.

    I keep pigs and nothing works like maize, I have seen them walk away from every other food stuff for it. If i was feeding boar it would be maize but not a lot and keep it topped up.

    Corn that is still on the cob and husked is commonly used to good effect. The benefit being that rodents wont stash all the kibbles.
