Enlarged Hand Guard and Carrying Handle Protect You

An enlarged steel plate covers the entire width of the top of the trap, protecting your hand from contact with the animal, and the updated, rigid plastic carrying handle makes the handling experience even more comfortable for you.


Rolled Metal Edges Protect the Animal

Like other Havahart® traps, this one is constructed of one-piece wire mesh, galvanized for resistance to rust and corrosion. And edges are polished smooth to protect the animal from injuring itself during transport or as it struggles to escape.


No-Escape Door Locks Give You Peace of Mind

The tight spring-loaded door features an updated door lock with added reinforcements, making your trap more escape-proof than ever.

To Catch a Squirrel
By W. T. Hoffman "artist and musician" - via Amazon.c

Last year I paid a lot of money to have an animal trapper remove squirrels from the attic, and to have the holes patched where they came in. Guess what...they came RIGHT BACK. According to the trapper, the scent of squirrel will draw them back. Now that its getting colder and wetter, my attic is starting to look inviting to the squirrels again. So, I got this HAVAHART Cage trap. Its so easy to use. You just pull the handle back, then bait it. I throw peanuts IN THE SHELL around the outside of the trap, and inside. Then, I check the trap at least once a day. Sometimes a squirrel will bang themselves against the side of the cage, until they are nearly dead. If you have a squirrel, you wont have to worry about its rodent teeth biting your fingers off, cos there is a thick steel plate, between the carry handle, and the cage. I still wear gloves, tho. In fact, if your attic has as much squirrel "dirt" as mine has in it, you'll maybe want to wear a resperator over your face too.

Take the trapped squirrel inside the cage, put it in the car, and release it a few miles away. The other side of a river, or large highway, keeps them from finding their way back to your house. It's illegal to trap and kill without a licence, in most municipalities. After you have a baited trap without any action for more than a week, you can stop trapping. If you hear squirrels again in your attic, you just have to bait and trap again. You wont have to worry about hurting the squirrel with the trap's gate, cos it wont snap shut, unless the target animal is stepping on the trigger plate, well inside the trap. Good Hunting!

Easily Did the Job

A squirrel chewed through our window screen and came into the kitchen to get a bag of peanuts we feed to the birds and squirrels outside. We set up the small Easy-Set trap in the kitchen, baited it with 2 peanuts and left the room. Within an hour,he was in the kitchen and in the trap. He was easily released in a park a few miles away.
