I am a researcher attempting to formulate a scented wax bait for trapping pests. The pest I work with is attracted to banana scent so I ordered a bottle of liquid isoamyl acetate from fischer. I see that it is highly flammable so my question is, how do I safely add it to hot liquid beeswax? Should I dilute it in water? I can't find any helpful resources on how it is used safely in candy making either. I appreciate any advice you can give!
