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 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 RateExcellent device
Work like a charm, got the 3-pack, set up 2 and have emptied and reset each 3 times in the first week. A couple times got a 2 for 1 special. Simple and easy to use. Wish I had gone this way instead of the snap-traps long ago
Review RateWorked very well
Worked like a charm once I got the bait sorted out. I tried peanut butter and could not figure out why the chipmunk was passing it up, upon closer inspection I saw that ants had covered the entire blob of peanut butter making it very unappetizing. I changed to raisins and caught the critter inside of 10 minutes. The trap is well constructed and easy to set up and release was simple.

This makes 5 traps total I purchased from HAVAHART. The two larger models (for Fox Squirrels) have/are holding-up well & working well! This latest purchase is to allow me to capture southern flying squirrels - intriguing little animal that invaded my deer stand during the past winter. Next year, they will have a new home!
Second purchase of the three pack of these traps. First day I got these ones I saw a mink in my backyard. First weasel I have seen in 8 yrs. I took one out of the box, threw some raw beef liver, smelts and fresh fish into a tinfoil dish I made to fit the back of the trap. I dropped a few pieces inside the trap and dribbled a little blood from the liver in front of the cage. I put the cage on my back deck close to where I had seen the mink. No word of a lie an hour later I decide to move it closer to my coop and when I went to get it I had already caught the mink! Love love love these traps!
