I get them in the sawmill shop, that is one of the most corrosive substances that can hit steel, and smells nasty too! I've been through several rounds of them, then the owls move in and move them out, then it is clear for awhile and repeats.

Before I put a wood floor in my shop, used to have trouble with rust on CI tables, and got to the point that seemed nothing worked but wipe on poly. That really seals the tops and keeps them from rusting, but has to be replaced if you use the machines a lot.  Since putting down the wood floor, the temp in the shop stays warmer, used 1" treated strips with dow board between the strips, and T&G flooring over the top.  Made a good 10 to 15 degree difference over night. I heat with wood, and don't keep a fire going over night.
Most everything I enjoy doing turns out to be work

I've switched to Boeshield T9.

It is expensive but dries and doesn't stain wood .

I also use CRC 3-36, it dries a bit gummy. not real good for surfaces that slide.

At work we use Fluid Film to protect machinery when we ship them.
I will probably try some out on my mill.
