No results By Gregor

Not working By Grgor

I haven’t caught anything yet in my traps and the trigger mechanisms are very hard to trigger. Also disappointed in the Sweeney pest repel. Armadillos are tearing my yard up.

We didn't catch any groundhogs, but it was fun seeing what we did catch! By Martha

Our two traps certainly caught some creatures-- just not the ones we wanted! The first guests were two teen-aged raccoons who were caught in the same trap. Afterwards, we caught one opossum and then another. They were probably from the same family because one was quite large and the other wasn't fully grown. We were trying to capture the six or so groundhogs that had migrated from the barn and taken up residence in the basement of our 100+ years old farm house in Pennsylvania. We used fragrant, juicy, fresh cantaloupe for bait. The yard smelled divine!

Good trap but doors need more strength. By RD

These are well made traps and simple to set. I ordered two for an armadillo problem and the two traps I used worked well. However, when a random raccoon is caught the traps will not hold them. The trap door construction needs beefing up as the raccoon will push so hard they will bend the door and escape. Otherwise, these traps are great.

Satisfied with the quality and efficiency of the traps. By Trapper 2

Got the traps a couple of weeks ago and have caught 6 shunks and 1 raccoon. Very pleased with the traps. Used eggs and cat food to lure them in and placed the bait in the back of the trap.

Trap will not hold raccoons. By Trapper

This trap will trap raccoons, but it will not hold them. They can and will escape the trap once caught.

Response From Havahart®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

When trapping any animal, it is important to remember they will quickly become scared and anxious. If kept in the trap for an extended length of time, they will go to great lengths to try to escape. We recommend monitoring the trap frequently to ensure a safe and successful trap and release.

This trap is covered by a 30 day return policy and a one year warranty with a copy of the purchase receipt. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for further assistance or with any questions. We are happy to help!

Groundhog pushed its way out of the cage...and it was not even a large one By Taylor J

I have trapped many groundhogs over the past decade. After loaning out a trap and not getting it back, I bought a new one two years ago. This morning I caught a small/medium sized groundhog. After going in to get changed, so I could drop it off, I came outside to find it gone. The trap was still in place and clearly it just pushed its way out. Unfortunately the warranty is only for 1 year. As I read many other reviews with this problem, the customer service response was: "it is very important to release the animal as soon as possible." I was trying to do that. What if it had pushed open in the back of my van?

Response From Havahart®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Taylor,

Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. We are very sorry to hear of this experience! For testing purposes, we recommend setting the trap and then tripping it manually. Are you able to reach through the side of the trap and push the door open from the inside? If not, the trap is working correctly.

We recommend placing the bait at the back of the trap; it can also be hung from the roof of the trap just past the trip plate. This will help to ensure the animal is fully inside the trap before the door closes.

Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions or for additional assistance.

Much Success By Rabbit-Relocator

Excellent live traps! Couldn’t be more pleased. In one month, the traps have caught six (6) cottontail rabbits! One at a time, of course. Gladly recommend the Havahart live traps.

Q.can i buy parts for the big trap?

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

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?

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.
