The Havahart® Large 1-Door Live Animal Trap is designed by trapping experts to be the most effective, reliable and durable trap of its kind.

Simple to Operate
You don't have to be a pro to use this Havahart® large trap. Its design allows users of all experience levels to trap, transport, and release raccoon-sized animals with very little effort.
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.

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.Date published: 2016-12-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnny boy from Simple operation I have used your traps for ten plus years. I ordered two more of the single door traps due to a skunk problem and my dog losing that battle every time. Over the years I have had great luck with raccoons, possums,squirrels and the occasional rat. So far no skunks but the traps are simple to use and last for many years. Thanks for the quick service and the bait recommendations.Date published: 2016-11-26Rated 4 out of 5 by Bridger from Works great!

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.Date published: 2017-01-16
I have feral cats and coons. Can anyone recommend a bait to use for either one or the other? Thank youFor 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.Date published: 2017-01-13

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.Date published: 2017-01-13
I just purchased a model #1079 trap yesterday and baited it on my deck with a small bowl of crushed grapes and peanut butter. This morning,I check the trap and it was moved several feet and the food was gone, the door was down but no raccoon? What gives?The bait being stole and trap triggered with no catch is often a result of an animal entering the trap partway and stealing the bait. When the trap triggered, since they were likely not fully in the trap, the door did not close and lock properly, allowing them to back out. To prevent this type of bait theft, we recommend tying the bait to the trap, behind the trigger plate. The bait can be placed in a nylon stocking or cheesecloth and hung or tied to the trap. This will cause the animal to enter the trap further and work harder to gain access to the bait, increasing the chances of a successful catch.Date published: 2016-11-04
how does one go about ordering some replacement parts ?Replacement parts are not available for our traps. They are covered under a one year warranty.Date published: 2016-11-04
I have 2 feral kittens in my yard they are about 4-5 months old. can I fit both of them in one cage?This trap is intended to catch one average sized cat. The smaller kittens may not be heavy enough to trigger the trap. Also, please keep in mind that if one of them does trigger it, the door will close and the other kitten will not be able to enter the trap.Date published: 2016-10-24
How can I get an animal out of the 1079 trap without getting bitten??When releasing an animal, we recommend carefully approaching the trap from the rear or the side. Lift the lock on the trap, lift the door open and insert a stick through both sides of the trap to prop the door open. You can then walk away from the trap and the animal will exit.Date published: 2016-10-11
