Ideal for trapping chipmunks, squirrels, flying squirrels, weasels, rats and voles.
The Havahart® X-Small 1-Door Trap has a patented design that assures you of quick, safe catches and releases. This chipmunk trap's structure helps prevent injuries to you or the animal.
This patented Havahart® one door trap is constructed of sturdy rust-resistant wire mesh with steel reinforcements for long life and galvanized for maximum resistance to rust and corrosion. Mesh openings are smaller than competing traps of comparable size to prevent escapes and stolen bait. Its patented design consists of a gravity action door and sensitive trigger to ensure quick, secure captures that target the specific animal size, eliminating undesired catches.
Solid door and handle guard protect the user during transportation, while smoothed internal edges protect and prevent injuries to animals.

Q: How far away should I take a live trapped squirrel so that it doesn't return to the house?
A: It is recommended that you take a squirrel at least 3 miles away and preferably beyond a body of water or a major highway.
Had a large number of chipmunks creating a problem digging under my foundation...tried using another company's trap and chipmunks ate the bait but didn't set off the trap. Then used the Havahart Model 0745 X-Small 1-door trap...what a great trap...have caught 5 chipmunks in the last 6 days and counting...the trigger design is superb and the best on the market.
Great Trap! September 26, 2012
Your Xsmall 1 door trap caught the rat that's been destroying electric cable for the past month. On the very first night I set it, it caught the culprit, a fat Wood Rat! Keep up the good work Havahart!
