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 RateGreat strong trap, works for rats.
I first purchased the 1020 trap to catch the rats that have been plaguing me, but it was too small and the latch mechanism was just bad. So I got a 0745 X-SMALL trap and have caught 3 rats in the past week. I also caught a squirrel and two birds as a side effect - not that I wanted that but it works really well. I am most impressed with the sturdy construction. I had three raccoons try to break into the cage when it trapped a rat, and they could not open or break it after 2 hours of trying - even though they tumbled and dragged the cage 10 meters away. Rat survived fortunately.
Just to be fair I did finally get the little sucker. The trap works. It takes some finageling to get the least resistance on the mechanismso it springs easily but that is the learning curve. I'm going to bump the rating up a couple more stars.
We now have a new roommate that has had a good run of things. It was not our initial intention but with the door not shutting on the trap the guy has made himself at home. The good news is that with all of the peanut butter and cheese that this guy is eating he will probably one day be standing in the trap and stroke out and hit his head on the trigger finally causing the door toResponse From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGood product
Put this trap in my attic not knowing what was up there. It tripped on day 3 and bait was gone...but nothing was inside, so I presume it was a mouse which could squeeze through the bars. I will put my smaller mouse size unit up instead. The fact a mouse could trip it speaks to it's sensitivity.
Review RateExcellent way to get rid of chipmunks
My yard was overrun with chipmunks. After trying a plastic owl and a rubber snake to no avail, I purchased the Havahart x-small 1-door trap. I used peanut butter and peanuts to bait the trap and in the past month have trapped and relocated 103 chipmunks !!! This trap is easy to use and obviously works extremely well. Would recommend it to anyone trying to rid their garden or yard of these cute little rodents without harming them.
Review RateNeeds work, but I'd buy another
Like one or two other purchasers, my X-Small 1-Door Trap came with a production flaw that prevented use. The largest chipmunk who ever lived could not have weighed enough to trip it. Pardon me while I use my own descriptive terms, but the rod that pivots under the plate, exits the cage and bends upward was too short in the horizontal section and did not protrude far enough on the outside of the cage. When set, the upward-pointing section of the plate-rod pulled the downward-pointing door-operating rod hard against the wire of the cage and the resulting spring tension made the plate a very sturdy platform indeed. Fortunately, there was an easy fix. Taking a Dremel tool and a small cutting wheel, I removed a tiny piece of horizontal cage-wire directly behind the two rods, 2 inches up from the bottom of the cage. Now, when set, the downward-pointing door-operating rod intrudes slightly into the cage with no tension. The trap now works very well, as advertised, but it gets a one-star penalty for the production flaw.
Review RateWorks Good
In the first week captured 12 Chipmunks. Peanut butter works the best.
Review RateActually using two of them and couldn't be happier
Purchased one on July tenth and have relocated 21 squirrels so fat. It's easy and very simple. If having problems,operator error.
Review RateGreat product will recommend to others!
Bought the three pack and in the first week captured and moved 10 Chipmonks from around our deck. Slowed to two the second week. The traps are easy to use. This solved our problem.
Review RateExcellent for trapping chipmunks
I bought this trap because of all of the chipmunks running amuck. It's turned out to be a great investment. So far, 6 chipmunks caught by merely putting black sunflower seeds in a small sandwich bag to act as an enticement. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking to trap chipmunks. I also caught a small red squirrel, but transferred it to another cage as the trap door is nowhere strong enough to keep a squirrel caged.
