Review RateIt works very well!
This trap has a strong door spring that closes quickly and the squirrel can't force it's way back out again. Easy to use and I like the handle at the top with the plate of metal below, protecting one's hand from the squirrel. It takes two hands to set the trap and the catch is easy to put into place I use peanuts in the shell, put a few of them at the action end, a few in the entrance, and a couple of peanuts around the trap. I've caught and relocated several squirrels since I got this new trap and am very pleased.
Review RateNot for Southern Flying Squirrels!!
I bought this model (1077) to trap southern flying squirrels that found their way into my attic. The trigger mechanism is light, which is good compared to other live traps. However, the mesh of the traps are too coarse, and the squirrels can fit their way through the trap. I later found out that these flying squirrels can fit through a hole the size of a nickel. Not sure why they did not make tighter mesh on these traps. I don't know why they don't show a tighter mesh trap either.Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. We are sorry to learn that the squirrels were small enough to squeeze through the mesh openings on this trap.
If the squirrels are on the smaller size and able to fit through the openings, we would recommend trying our Havahart® Small 2-Door Animal Trap (1025), which has a smaller mesh size.

Review Ratetrigger is too stiff
I bought this model 1077 squirrel trap at Orchard Supply. I set it and baited it. later I saw a squirrel sitting on the trigger eating the bait! The trap remained open and set! The trigger is too stiff for the weight of the squirrel and cannot be made more sensitive.Response From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear about this experience! The trigger should trip with little pressure. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team directly at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for assistance. We are happy to help!
Review RatePoor trigger mechanism
The trap is well built well but the trigger needs too be redesigned. I have tried to hair trigger the trap but it still won't trip with a chipmunk. I have another trap that has a roller where the trigger sets and works great. I have been using livetraps for 40 years and have never had a haveheart trap that didn't work correctly.. I will try to put some weight on the pan and see if that works.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We apologize for this experience and hope the additional weight helps to increase the sensitivity of the trap. The trap should trip with little pressure to the tip plate. We recommend setting it and tripping it manually to test the pressure. If it takes a good amount of force to trip, please feel free to contact us directly for further assistance. Our Consumer Relations Team can be reached at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242).

Review RateMODEL 1077 Follow Up Review
After a month of trapping squirrels I have found what seems to work very well in trapping them. I thought I would share what I have learned during this time period. In total I have trapped 11 squirrels. First I did fasten the trap to the ground by extending 10 inch metal rods through the trap side into the ground in four locations. Next I really baited the trap with black oil sunflower seeds, acorns, peanuts and hazel nuts. I strung the nuts on two thin wires above and to the rear of the trip plate. Be careful to keep them at least one inch from the top, side and rear of the trap or the squirrel will get them from outside the trap. Next I dug a trench about 1/2 inch below trap being 1 inch wide. Half of the trench was under the trip plate and half was exposed to the rear of the trip plate. I filled the trench with seeds and acorns. Lastly I placed seeds and pieces of the acorns at the entrance of the trap and in the trap. When the squirrels see those hanging peanuts and Hazel nuts they go for them in time. Be patient and soon you will be trapping squirrels. This has worked for me and now I do appreciate these traps.
Review RateModel 1077 Review
The traps I purchased model 1077 are well built but function poorly. I observed a squirrel actually push a trap over and that did not trigger the trap release. There is so little distance behind the trigger plate that the squirrel does not need to reach it to get the bait. I buried the bait, I hung the bait inside PVC, I placed the bait under the handle. The squirrel gets the bait and leaves the trap. I watched squirrel after squirrel push the light trap off the buried bait and even dig out the buried bait from outside the trap. I have to put a brick on the trap and fasten the corners to the ground to keep it from being pushed around. Like I said the trap fails to function. I think it may be best to return the five traps I purchased. Also when unboxed the traps all of the handles were installed differently and none of them correctly. I had to reinstall all if them. This is a shame because the traps are quality built.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. When trapping a squirrel outdoors, we recommend anchoring the trap or placing a heavy object on the top to prevent animals from tipping it over and stealing the bait. To increase the sensitivity of the trap, we recommend placing a washer or pebble on the bait tray. Also, tying the bait from the roof of the trap right over the bait plate or in the far back works well to make sure the squirrel has to maneuver on the trigger plate, increasing the chances of a catch.

Review RateModel 1077 Unboxing
I purchased five model 1077 traps which arrived all at the same time. Upon removing them from their individual boxes I noticed that the handles were all installed differently and none of them correctly. Not a single handle resembled how they appeared on the box or the accompanying instructions. Two handles were installed diagonally. Two handles were installed on the right side of the trap and one handle was installed on the left side of the trap. None of the handles would lay flush with the top of the trap on the protected area. To lay flush the handles protruded outside the top protected area. I had to remove all five handles and reinstalled them as illustrated on the box and the instructions. Now they lay flush entirely on the protected top of each trap. I also purchased in the past four of the model 1079-B trap. They work fine and are the same design as the model 1077. I expect the model 1077 to perform just as well. A word about the model 1079-B. They were the first traps I purchased from Havahart. Upon trapping one of the handles did break. That occurrence is what led me to closely examine the handles. I am very much surprised to see that, as it appears to me, that none of the five handles on the model 1077 were correctly installed.Response From Havahart®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

The trigger plate can support a brick! I actually did put a brick on it. The squirrel keeps taking the bait without triggering the trap. Very poor design. The trigger plate is too short. At best, the squirrel can only put its front paws on it. Since the front half of a squirrel doesn't weigh as much as a brick, it doesn't work. It might work for bigger animals, but not for squirrels.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this unusual experience and will be happy to help.
