Safe for You and the Animal

For You: A solid door and handle guard protect you from contact with a trapped animal, and the carrying handle allows you to hold the trap away from your body while an animal is inside.

For the Animal: A strong door lock keeps the animal safely inside the trap, while smooth, rolled internal trap edges prevent injuries to animals as they are being transported, or as they struggle to escape.

Havahart® Traps are Built to Last

Havahart® builds the strongest, most durable traps with premium materials, intended to endure harsh weather and unpredictable animal behavior. Traps are constructed of industrial-strength, one-piece wire mesh, which is galvanized for maximum resistance to rust and corrosion. A solid door and steel reinforcements add to the durability of the trap, ensuring an even longer trap life.

Unhappy With Havahart Service By Rich

Bought this about 7 months ago and has never worked right. The door will not close when weight is put on the spring. I contacted the store where I bought it at and was told that Havahart would not replace it for them and they would not for me. I contacted Havahart but never got a reply.

Excellent By Kate

I bought one of these traps to catch groundhogs. They have been living under my sheds for several years. I put the trap out next to the shed lightly covered with pruned branches along a traffic pattern I put bananas out first, then primed the trap with cantaloupe twice before setting the trap. I had the female within an hour after setting the trap. I did use gloves because sites recommended their use. I am very pleased with the result. Thank you Havahart...

success the second night! By Binfaz

I bought this one-door large trap because of an armadillo that was tearing up my vegetable garden (uprooting plants throughout the garden). First night I set the trap, but no results (used a few grubs for bait). Second night I moved the trap onto one of the narrow paths between two beds. This morning, there are as a big armadillo, which I took 10 miles away and let him free. I'm so happy how easy it was!

A great trap and one of good quality By Fish

I purchased this Large 1-door animal trap after using the same size and brand from an animal rescue individual in my community. It worked great. So I decided to buy one for myself to capture feral cats in my neighborhood. Again it was perfect and made of good quality and gauge steel wire. To date I have caught three feral cats and have taken them to the Vet to be spayed and or neutered. I give this cage a 5 star rating.

Reliable, easy-to-use trap. By Michael

Possum, feral cats, and racoon. This trap is simple to set, secures the animal, and protects your hand from getting clawed. Havahart also responded promptly and fairly to a customer service issue very recently. Cannot say enough positive about this company.

I recommend this one By Mike M

Of all of the larger Havahart traps (I have used 2 door and slightly smaller single door traps) this large trap gives the largest number of raccoons. One time the babies found their way into the trap. There were four in there at one time. I have pictures!! The only problem is the larger raccoons when trying to get out usually bend and mutilate the trip rod between the trip pad and the release hook. I have remade that bar twice after about 75 raccoons. This is a great trap!!

Great trap By Sivart
Smooth operation, the trigger is perfect, no to stuff and doesn't freely fall off. Have held raccoons great light enough to carry a ways.

Q.I have a large single trap and i have lost the spring! Would there be any way that i could buy one?Please let me know. Thank you---(DANA)

This trap is covered under a one year warranty. We apologize, however, individual replacement parts are not available. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for additional assistance.

Q.for a few dollars more is it better to use the 2 sided trap? I'm more concerned with success then a couple bucks.

Both types of traps are equally effective in trapping the size animal the trap is designed for when properly set and baited. An advantage to the 2-door trap is that it can be set as both a 1 or 2-door trap.

Q.I have feral cats and coons. Can anyone recommend a bait to use for either one or the other? Thank you

For baiting cats, we recommend using canned tuna in oil, sardines in oil, mackerel, anchovies, fresh fish, cooked chicken, oil of catnip, and wet cat food. For baiting raccoons, we recommend using marshmallows, watermelon, sweet corn, vegetables coated in honey or sugar, crisp bacon, wet cat food, fish, and cooked fatty meat.
