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,
Review RateLARGE LIVE ANIMAL TRAP
I'm very satisfied with this large live trap. It makes me feel a lot more safer then the open grate style. And so easy to use. If I where to recommend a live trap for coon size animals, to a friend. This trap would be the trap, Good Job HAVAHART. 5 stars all the way........chuck
Review RateYep we got him!
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!
Review RateGood but flimsy materials used
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.
Review RateWorks every night!
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!
Review Ratedidn't work
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.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateTrigger mechanism has too much flex and fails to release
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.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateThe rear wire (fixed) door needs to be stronger!!
My experience is identical to many others who have used the trap for catching raccoons: A young and relatively small raccoon I recently caught was still strong enough to bend the solid bar that holds the rear (wire) door in place, bend the door inward (dislocating it from one of the upper hinges in the process), and thereby create an opening large enough for it to escape through. In the process, the trap was damaged beyond repair. It's hard enough to catch these wily critters without having to worry that, unless it's disposed of immediately, there's a reasonable likelihood the animal can escape. This exact problem appears to be sufficiently frequent that the company really ought to redesign the trap, making the back door and hinges much stronger. No one should buy this trap (for raccoons) until they do that.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
