This trap has been effective ...
Sep 3, 2023
This trap has been effective in catching a few rodents soon after setting it. Also, I appreciate the gloves that come with the trap. But a few days after setting it, a raccoon broke the plate off from the cage. a critical part. I had to buy another trap because the first trap was useless without a plate attached to the structural bar below it. I would recommend a stronger and more durable hinge for the plate, instead of bending the plate extensions around the bar beneath it.

Great little Trap that works
May 22, 2023
In the first three days, I trapped 11 squirrels (so far). Twice, I got two squirrels at the same time. Very simple to use and effective. I got the longer (24 inches) trap to ensure the entire squirrel would be trapped inside. Very satisfied! Only problem are all the trips and the gas I'm buying to relocate the little buggers from my area. LOL!

I’ve had this trap setup ...

I’ve had this trap setup for a week to catch a rabbit and no matter where I place the bait the rabbit doesn’t trip it. Very disappointing.

We are sorry to hear that! There is nothing more frustrating than finding an animal has escaped a set trap. If you find the trap door open and bait has vanished, it could mean this specific rabbit is too light to trigger it. It is also possible a smaller animal you are not intending to trap could be stealing the bait. Using a different type of bait or relocating the trap might help. You may want to try and increase the sensitivity by adding something small onto the trigger plate like a metal washer or pebble. Please feel free to give us a call directly at 855-542-8242 for more helpful tips!

Excellent live trap
Apr 18, 2023
I've had this trap for about 3 weeks and have caught the two problem squirrels in my yard. I baited the trigger with a peanut pushed down in some peanut butter. I put the food right on the trigger mechanism to make the squirrels work a little harder and hopefully spring the trap. After several unsuccessful attempts where the bait was gone but the trap hadn't sprung, I placed a lid from a container in the back of the trap and placed the bait in the lid instead which forced the squirrels to cross over the trigger to get the food. That was the secret for these squirrels.

Worked great, but watch the latch
Apr 11, 2023
Trap worked great to catch a raccoon, but be very careful of the door latch. The latch will release the door if the trap tips on its side.

We're sorry to hear you didn't see the success that's typical of these traps! The mechanism should be easy to trigger as the animals the trap is designed for are on the smaller side. Please contact us at 855-542-8242 for assistance with our 1-year manufacturer replacement policy.

The trap was not working as I watched a number of squirrels go in, step on the trigger plate and nothing happened. I had to work on the trigger mechanism by flattening the hitch a bit and add some lithium grease as it was not releasing properly. It still has allowed some of the bait to get taken without tripping. Will work on it more.

Does what is it supposed to do
Sep 5, 2022
I bought this trap for my mother's bothersome squirrel problem. I have used the smaller trap for chipmunks and have relocated 7 chipmunks so far this year. It works great!

work well, good quality
Jul 11, 2022
I already have 2 of the havahart traps and they work quite well. I purchased 2 more of the smaller traps to take care of ground squirrels that are eating the fruit from my trees before they are quite ready to pick. Very frustrating but I know the traps will take care of the problem. as they are quality made and long lasting
