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.

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!!

Got\' em By JJ22222
Have been pestered with possums raiding the chicken coop. After feasting on over a dozen of my good hens in less than a week, and watching the hen house at all hours to no avail, decided to try trapping. Boy was that a good decision. Trap easy to set up. First night got a BIG one. Next night got two half grown ones. Now no more dead hens. Thanks guys for a good invention. Love it.

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.

Q.I have the 1079.  I lost the wire that fits on the front of the door that when the trap is tripped falls back down and locks the door.  Can I get a replacement wire device for the front of the solid trap door?

We do not offer replacement parts for this trap, however it is covered by a one year warranty.
