Safe for You and the Animal

For You: A solid handle guard and solid doors protect you from contact with the animal, and the carrying handle allows you to hold the trap away from your body, while an animal is inside.

For the Animal: Strong door locks keep animals safely in the cage, and smooth, rolled edges prevent anxious critters from injuring themselves during transport, or as they try to escape.

A Two-Door Trap is Fast and Versatile

A two-door trap allows you to create a clear path from one end of the trap to the other by setting it with both ends open. Place this two-door trap against a wall or along an animal’s path in order to capture it as it travels from either direction. In order to access the bait and get to the other end, a rabbit or skunk must step on the trigger plate, resulting in a catch.

Havahart® Means Built to Last

Havahart® builds the strongest, most durable traps with premium materials, intended to endure harsh weather and unpredictable animal behavior. This trap is constrcuted of industrial-strength, one-piece wire mesh, which is galvanized for maximum resistance to rust and corrosion. Solid doors and steel reinforcements add to the durability of the trap, ensuring an even longer trap life.

No more bunnies. By Bunny catcher
The traps works great.
Caught 2 hungry bunnies!

Great product. By Paul

I have been using Havahart live animal traps for years. I had to get a new one because I had put it in a driveway that is little used, but a family member managed to back a vehicle over it! It works great and I really need it because I have five nut trees and the squirrels love hanging out at my yard!

Excellent Trap - Recommend By Philip

Regarding 1030-B: Excellent trap!!! It works very well for squirrels. Size: Purchased this medium size trap for trapping squirrels after reading many reviews that said the small size traps were too small. Baits: First tried "squirrel corn" --- not interested. Then tried peanuts --- not interested. Then tried a saucer with bird feed (including sunflower seeds) ---> catching one squirrel after another. Method: I keep one door closed. I got a two door trap because it facilitates the baiting of the trap.

Squirrels not so cute By Frankie Pankie

Yes, the Havahart trap worked great! Caught 3 devilishly clever squirrels in 3 nights. They are cute but were ransacking our tomatoe garden with no effort on their part for moderatin or civility. I took them far away on way to work in mornings and left them off in wilderness area. They will have to adapt to new situation. We caught another on the 4th night, but my wife made me release it since she felt we were breaking up a family (sheesh). These sentiments quickly turned to wrath when she noticed her prize tomato on the vine was ravaged. I then caught that one again and no more repatriation allowed.

Great trap after a little tweeking By Jim

After several years of ground squirrels running off with my tomatoes and chewing up my marigolds, I decided to invest in a trap to deal with them. After looking at the reviews and the selection guide on this web site I decided on the Model 1030. At first the door release trigger seemed too stiff and the squirrels too long for the door to close in time. I missed several squirrels who just fed off of the trigger plate and left the trap unscathed. This happened several times. I decided to keep one door closed and position the bait, a combination of unsalted almonds and walnuts and a little peanut butter. Next I bent the door latch wire to the trigger out a bit to reduce the contact area making the release more sensitive. Works like a charm with four squirrels in four days.

Nice design and easier to set up than older versions By Heather

Clever, clever squirrels. We have had a veritable party in our attic off and on now for years. I used to set our old and smaller Hav-A-Hart in the attic where they live, but they didn't participate. Then I moved the trap outdoors (easier for me) ... near our bird-feeder. Though the squirrels sometimes escape the trap before the doors fully close, I sometimes get lucky! I recently purchased a larger (2-door) trap in the hopes I would have a better success rate against them. It's better - but I still have a lot of trapping to do!

1030 not so good 1078 Great! By Dave

I bought this last week to get a squirrel out of my chimney flue. The design as others have commented did NOT work using the two doors. Went to using one door and still not successful. Trap needed to be longer and have a better quicker action , After a few days and several failures, I borrowed my neighbors Model 1078! Within two hours, Mr Squirrel was captured! The spring action on the single door Model 1078 is great! I rate that Model with FIVE STARS! I will look for that Model next time I buy and won’t settle for anything else!

Could use stronger/thicker metal By Bob

Like the size, and the extra hook on the door for the latch to stay down is nice when an animal flips the trap over. However I see a problem with the top metal square where the handle is attached, very positive any animal will be able to bend the flimsy metal and get out. Had a squirrel in this trap for only an hour or two and the metal was already bent.

A 6 in. longer trap is the answer for catching squirrels By John

After using the 1030-B trap for a year now I've found that a few modifications were needed to assure success. First; I found that using it as a 2 door trap did not work. The squirrels were too fast and the doors too close so they were able to propel themselves out when the trap sprung. What I have done is locked the one door down and put a bait holding tray beyond the trigger lever so that the squirrel has to commit a greater part of it's body within the trap. Of course a trap that was 6 inches longer would be the answer.

Q.Hello. I bought a 1030 trap at our local hardware store to catch Some pesky squirrels. The strap is way too slow for squirrels. As soon as they hear the mechanism being set, they are quick enough to escape before the doors come down and lock. This item is a total failure, as opposed to the 1072 spring loaded door on our other trap that works great.

We're sorry to hear the squirrel escaped! In situations like this, we recommend using the trap with just one door open, and placing the bait near the closed end. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for assistance, we're happy to help.

Q.I need to buy the bait tray with the release mechanism. mine seperated and was lost.

Replacement parts are not available for the traps, however, they are covered by a one-year warranty. For further assistance, call our Customer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242). We're happy to help!

Q.I've been trying to catch a squirrel but I think its tail is preventing the door from closing. Any suggestions?

We recommend setting the trap with one door open and placing the bait all the way in the back of the trap in front of the closed door. This will help draw the squirrel fully into the trap.
