Designed For You by Trapping Professionals
Designed and field-tested by trapping professionals, the Havahart® X-Small 1-Door Live Animal Trap is built to ensure a quick, safe trapping experience, every time. Thanks to its careful construction, it can be used as a flying squirrel trap, weasel trap, chipmunk trap or virtually any small rodent trap, because these tiny animals can't outsmart it. The trip plate is sensitive enough that even the lightest animals can effectively trigger the door closed, and the mesh openings are smaller than competing traps, so little critters cannot steal the bait.
Simple to Operate
You don't have to be a pro to use this Havahart® extra small trap. Its design allows trappers of all experience levels to capture and transport flying squirrels, weasels and other rodents with ease. And it's the only trap with a guillotine-style door, which can be lifted from the top avoiding contact with the animal.
Safe for You and the Animal
A live cage trap is a humane tool for eliminating small rodents from your home or yard, and Havahart® makes the process safe for you and the animal.
For You: A solid door and handle guard protect you from contact with a trapped animal, and the carrying handle allows you to hold the trap away from your body while an animal is inside.
For the Animal: A strong door lock keeps the animal safely inside, while smooth, rolled internal trap edges prevent injuries to animals as they are being transported or as they struggle to escape.
Havahart® Traps are Built to Last
Havahart® builds the strongest, most durable traps with premium materials, intended to endure harsh weather and unpredictable animal behavior. Traps are constructed of industrial-strength, one-piece wire mesh, which is galvanized for maximum resistance to rust and corrosion. A solid door and steel reinforcements add to the durability of the trap, ensuring an even longer trap life.

Review RateMild success
Caught two mice and 3 rats, the first four days. Now, they just eat the lead in bait at the front of the trap, and run around the traps. Nothing caught in the past 2 weeks.Response From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Try only placing bait near the trigger pedal, they may just be searching for a quick meal! Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for assistance.

Review Ratedid an excellent job of catching red squirrels
worked perfectly, we have caught at least 25 red squirrels this year and with the extra traps we were able to catch more at the front and year of our home. easy to dispose of critters, and easy to clean.
Review RateReally great customer service!
We had two of these traps for relocating squirrels; the squirrels we caught were not particularly cooperative, despite the promise of their going to a better home. On one trap, the steel latch spring broke, likely the result of squirrel efforts. When I inquired about purchasing a new spring latch that I was certain I could install myself, the company informed me that (1) they didn't sell the parts, but (2) they would just send me a whole new trap for free. Wonderful service from Havahart, a welcome change from the garbage you get from everyone else!
Review RateFlaw in the latch design
Yesterday I wrote a review about the Havahart 0745 traps that I bought. Both worked well until first one's latch broke off, then, squirrels came in, ate the bait, wiggled around, got the door open, then left. The very next day, the same thing happened to the other trap, latch broke off. With both traps, I had caught 9 squirrels in just 4 days, so I know how well they DID work! After thinking about it during the night, I realize that it really bothers me to leave a bad review. So, I am wondering if the design could be changed up a little. What if the door was a half inch taller, with a wedge to keep it latched? Or, the door was a half inch taller, and the latch was turned up the other way? I had set up a camera to see how the squirrel was escaping from the first trap, when I captured the footage of a squirrel breaking the latch of the second trap. The door fell down, and the latch went all of the way into the trap, and that squirrel scratched and dug at the latch until he bent it off. I would rather try to help with a solution than to leave a bad review. I was disappointed that I was having such good luck, until the latch broke...on BOTH traps. Help, I need two new doors!Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWorked well for 4-5 nights - FLAW in the design or weight of the latch
I bought two of the 0745 traps, due to a problem with squirrels, ground squirrels, gophers and moles. The first night caught 2 ground squirrels, and so happy to be done with at least two of them! Traps were easy to set! This went along for 4 nights, then, one trap lost the little thing that you squeeze to open the door. The next night the second one lost it's little thing. Those seemed to keep the door from jiggling around. Since then, both traps have been sprung, but no critter remained in the trap. I set up a trail cam, and see that they go in, door closes, they eat the bait, and dig at the door and squeeze thru the opening at the top of the door. I really expect things that I buy to be effective much longer than 4-5 days. Needless to say, I cannot give you more stars for these traps. Two out of two failed. The ground squirrels are running around, with only 9 less destroying my pump house.Response From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateRepair parts not available for a simple fix
Wanted to give this a 2 star rating however it works quite well. Problem for me is the guillotine door catch. Squirrels have strong little hands and mine have bent the locking spring to the point they have broken. I now have 2 with a broken latch and repair door is not available nor can you buy just the latch. Company wants you to buy another and then another rather than just sell a new door, other than service this is a nice trap that works well.Response From Havahart®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
