Thanks for the ideas Pappy. I separated everything - quarantined the turkey fan and pheasant clump and got everything else into their own private bags so hopefully I'll contain the spread if there are any more live ones in the fan. Putting stuff in the freezer may work this year - God knows I don't have any elk steaks or venison in there!
Ive been using cedar balls in boxes with my materials for the last couple of years.
Seems to be working.
Cedar works well for a couple years, but then the volatile oils evaporate out, and they need to be replaced. It would be my choice were it not for the need for consistent replacement. I had cedar boards in one of my containers of stuff which was destroyed. They were quite old.
I dust all my organic materials with 7 dust before I store them. 7 is a garden insectide. It is also used in making flea collars, dusting for poultry, poultry houses , and dusting for pets, and their beds. It is an insecticide, so caution should be taken when using it. It's not everyones cup of tea, but with proper handling, it's done the job for me.
I always figured that the smelly jelly was more of an attractant than a cover scent. I've been tying flies with my moth balled materials and haven't seen any difference in the number of takes. I don't think the fish care about the odor, but I would imagine that you would get a nasty taste if the materials have direct contact with the chemicals, and they would be more prone to spitting or ignoring those flies.
