Great safe and humane trap. By Sparky

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.

Weak Point By Old bowhunter

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.

Hello,

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.

Trapping Armadillos Using Two Large 1-Door Traps By Mike

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,

Yep we got him! By Lisa

The first night I used it I caught the cat. He won’t be falling for that trick again. The second night I did catch him. The thieving chicken killing raccoon!! Even though he was a big one your trap held him fine. He was pretty angry though. The release went well, he had had enough of me and the cage and the car. He now resides in the next county over. Thanks Havahart!

Good but flimsy materials used By SCOTT

Caught 5 feral cats so far with a mixture of sardines and tuna fish in oil, placed on a paper plate under the trap. Also caught one opossum. The Humane Society charges 10 dollars per feral cat in a trap. I told my neighbors with pet cats to put , at least a flea collar on their pet to identify it and I would release it in the morning. 4 Stars, because the quality of the welded wire and thickness of the trap door could be more robust. I reinforced the bottom of the door and the release latch lever.

Works every night! By Little one

I have an old Havart trap that worked well for years but became so bent up I bought a ng e trap from TSC and it broke the first time I trapped a coon. I just bought another Havart, a possum the first night and a coon the second night. Havart is the best!

didn't work By slp

Poorly built trap; the trigger rod doesn't catch, it's a hair too short, so the door doesn't stay open. Hopefully I can get a refund at Lowes. It's my second havahert that did not work.

Trigger mechanism has too much flex and fails to release By Scott

The trigger mechanism on the large one-door trap often fails to release. The plate has enough flex that it can be pressed all the way to the floor of the trap without springing the release. It works better if the animal steps on the plate close to where it's attached to the trigger rod. Placing the bait on that side of the trap helps, but still... The design could use improvement. Using stiffer materials or giving the plate more travel would help. Other reviewers haven't reported this problem, so maybe it's a quality control issue.

Q&A
Q.can i buy parts for the big trap?
A.

Our traps are covered by a 1-year warranty, replacement parts are not available.

Q.just bought 1079--cat apparently not heavy enough to trip door--any suggestions
A.

Weight can be added to the trigger pedal with small stones, metal washers, or magnets to increase its sensitivity.

Q.How do you release animal from trap?
A.

We recommend standing to the side of the trap and opening the door in the same way you would when setting the trap. Then, insert a stick through both sides of the trap to prop the door open and walk away. The animal will exit the trap when they are comfortable.
