Not sure about tree rats but the squirrels like corn cobs (after I've eaten the corn of course). Here's the link for paratan:

You think the tree rats would make for good dubbing?

Appreciate the link... Thanks! Looks like good stuff, and since one skin is a porky skin, should be painless to use.

Tree Rats = Squirrels so dubbing value the same

Corn cobs a good thought, will try them out.

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.

How about some big jars like a restaurant would use for pickles and such?

I was kidding about the freezers, but serious this time.

Why do we use "Berkely Gravy", "Smelly Jelly" and the like on baits and ice fishing stuff to cover up human odors but are able stick our fly tying materials in mothballs??!! This I don't understand.

Could it be that fish in moving water rely less on their sense of smell(and more on instiinctive reaction) than their impounded brethren?

Anybody have any insight into this? Where is Ron Belak?

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.
