Review RateBest traps
I have one of your traps that is 20 plus years old and working fine. I bought another brand from a local hardware to help with the large number of raccoons and it was hard to set, hard to trip and I gave it away and bought a new one from you that caught a coon the first day.
Review RateGreat traps !
Bought two of these traps and have caught 3 raccoons in them. I am very satisfied. They were baited with large marshmallows; 4-5 at the back of the cage and one at the entrance midway between the door and trigger plate. Raccoons love marshmallows! They love sugar and they also look like "eggs" to them which is also a favourite food.
Review RateGreat product quality
I bought this trap a few weeks ago to catch a groundhog. It was delivered within a couple days. I setup the trap about 15 feet from where the groundhog lives and I was able to catch him the next day, Took him about 10 Km away and was easy to release.
Review RateOnly trap that really works.
I have one of your traps that is around 25 years old that is still working fine although showing signs of age. I bought a new one just like it after buying another brand at a local hardware store that only worked about half of the time. I have a box in the backyard I keep corn and pellets in for the local deer that is being mobbed by raccoons. With your trap I can catch one every time I set it. When they got smart and started tipping the trap over, I drove a piece of rebar into the ground and set the trap over it, that has worked very well.
Review RateI suggest not buying model 1078
Trigger too heavy, doesn't activate the trap door, unless using excessive force. Not sensitiveResponse From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for your feedback! We have shared your comments with our Product Managers. This trap should trigger with minimal force, and when this is not the case, please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for assistance. We are happy to help!
Review RateExcellent product
Great trap. I was able to trap the neighors cat within 12 hours with a half can of tuna. No more poo in my garden. The count agent explained my neighbor will now have to pay a fine to retrieve his unregistered cat. I only wish I would have done this sooner!
Review Rategreat cage
the cage works great so far in 2 weeks I have caught 2 squirrels and a possum. easy to use and sturdy
Review RateGreat safe and humane trap.
This live trap works very well. We originally bought it to get rid of armadillos that were destroying the landscaping around our house, but it also came in handy to catch a small frightened dog that was in our neighborhood. We were able to catch the pup without injury and return her to her owners.
Review RateWeak Point
I own several havahart traps. Three small ones for chipmunks and two large for armadillo. Last night I had a large armadillo in my newest trap, the model 1079. The animal rammed the door so hard that it bent the door spring and escaped ruining my trap. The weak point is the door spring. If the flat metal piece was larger extending 4 inches it would support the spring much more and make the trap much stronger. It wouldn't cost havaheart but pennies per trap.Response From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! Your comments have been shared with our Product Managers. When trapping armadillos, we recommend checking the trap frequently. Doing so will limit the amount of time the animal spends in the trap, and reduce the animal's anxiety so their efforts to escape do not become extreme. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions.
Review RateTrapping Armadillos Using Two Large 1-Door Traps
When I read some of the reviews, I was a bit worried that HAVAHART might have slipped from their humane trapping leadership position. The Florida Panhandle has lots of armadillos and armadilos can destroy property right quick, specially if one is opposed to applying insecticides to eliminate food sources. After hiring a very capable professional trapper...TWICE...I bought the necessary 2’ plastic garden fencing to guide the armadillos to the HAVAHART Large 1-Door Traps set-up side-by side with the doors opposing each other at the first instances of armadillo signs. Thus far...100% success! Traps are rugged, well-made and effective. With the entrapped armadillos in the easily transportable HAVAHART, they are humanely and safely removed and released in an appropriate wild, natural, roadless habitat where they won’t come into hazardous contact with humans. Good job HAVAHART,
