Made by trapping experts, it's simple to use and provides an effective and reliable solution to medium-sized animals causing a problem in your yard or garden. No matter your level of trapping experience, this trap is a humane solution for your pest control needs!
Simple to Operate This Havahart® Medium trap is designed for animals larger than rodents, such as rats and mice, but smaller than a raccoon or armadillo. Using the correct size trap ensures that you can catch the right animal. This trap is simple to set. Using the elongated lever, set the trap in the open position and add a small amount of food for bait. Your instruction manual has bait recommendations for the type of animal you wish to catch. Once the animal is inside, the door closes automatically, trapping the animal without the use of chemicals or adhesive traps.
Simple to Operate
Secure Traps for Catching Outdoor Pests
Secure Traps for Catching Outdoor Pests This Havahart® Medium 1-Door Trap is designed to capture outdoor animal pests safely while protecting you. The trap is set with a levered door and a small sensor with an adjustable sensitivity screw that can be set to the correct animal's weight. Once the animal is inside, the door shuts and latches securely to prevent the animal from escaping during transport.
Humane Capture for Peace of Mind The steel bars are designed with rolled edges, protecting the animal's skin and fur from cuts or scrapes. The oversized handle is surrounded by a steel plate on top, protecting your hands as you carry the trap. To open and shut the trap door, an off-set lever means you never have to touch the animal or directly handle the cage bars to release it.
Humane Capture for Peace of Mind
Durable for Long-Lasting Use
Durable for Long-Lasting Use Havahart® traps are created from rust-resistant stainless steel to retain their integrity, even during use outdoors in inclement weather. The sides are created from a single piece of wire mesh that's galvanized for strength to combat unpredictable animal behavior. The door is solid, and each side is reinforced for long-lasting use and to prevent damage to the trap from the captured animal.

Traps never failed me in many years of professional use. By Tomfolr
I am a licensed Nuisance Control Operator in Upstate NY and as so have gotten many, many calls about removing skunks. As they are usually a problem by a house, generally due to owners feeding their domestic or wild "pets outside. Due to my desire to release any unwanted catches I use cage traps.
Over the years I have acquired many Havahart cage traps and they work just fine in catching the desired target animal(s) desired.
Now, I am sure some readers want to know how I release live skunks from a cage trap. I simply take a vinyl picnic table cloth, the cheapest one you can find andwalk up to the trapped skunk slowly with the open cloth blocking the skunk and me. Once close enough I drape the cloth over the trapped skunk, pick up the trap and skunk and place the back of my work truck.
One thing I would like Havahart to improve on is to have their cage traps doors open when one rolls the trap on it's top. There are traps that do this but not made by Havahart.

Products perform as advertised By Clyde
I don't know if I've set a record with your traps but as of 5/7/20 I have
caught and relocated 820 squirrels in Chicago. This has been going on
for ten years (since they did great damage in our attic and were chewing on telephone lines). Have kept a record of each squirrel catch
and written a little about each one's personality or situation presented with
in getting them into trap. Your small and large traps have performed
flawlessly in all these years. The squirrels are transported to a nature center with 100's of acres of trees etc. Haven't heard one complaint from them ;-)

Does not trap armadillos By Larry

Does not work with Armadillos. Hid the cage under canopy to keep the stress down. They can push the door up and bend the rods. Rods that hold the door down in locked position are too weak. Bought if for that specific animal.

Response From Havahart®
Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

We're sorry to hear the armadillo escaped! They will go to great lengths to escape from a trap, so we recommend checking the trap frequently. This trap is covered by our 1-year replacement policy. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for assistance.

Buy It!! By Rob

I never write reviews, but this live trap was so awesome I had to write. For two summers I have been dealing with rabbits eating my flowers and had to put up fencing to prevent it. This year they started eating my grass and making brown patches. I was fed up. So, I bought this trap, baited with spinach, carrots and apples, and within three days I caught 4 rabbits and released them in the country. No more rabbits. Grass is greening up. Easiest and most effective thing I have ever bought. Can use it over and over again if necessary. Hope this review helps someone else like me.

Trap-savvy By Jack

THe raccoons in my area are trap-savvy. There is no bait I know of that can induce them to enter the trap.

Response From Havahart®
Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Jack - Thank you for sharing this feedback. We're sorry to hear that the local raccoons are a little wary of traps. We recommend camouflaging the trap with sticks or leaves to make it look more a part of their environment. You may also be suprised as to how crazy for marshmellows raccoons can be! Please reach out to us at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any questions.

Can't catch mama cat!!!!!! By Hannah

Trying to catch a mother cat to keep her with her kittens, and the cage won't lock once it snaps shut! This is endangering these 3 week old babies because we can't trap their mom! She's gotten out 3 times! Go to a local animal shelter and use one of their traps for a cat, this trap is a waste of $65 and is endangering these babies!

Response From Havahart®

Online Parts Request By Del

Well made trap, except for the door spring. The spring is a flat piece of tin, about 5/8" wide and it has broken. Rendering the trap useless. Haven't been able to find a part ordering site on the web.

Awesome, but human confused! By May

Bought this locally and it worked well but I only set with one door open. I cannot figure out where to place the food for double door opening that doesn’t allow the cat to bypass the trigger step. Any input would be appreciated. I personally love the easy set & release because my daughter who is four helps me release feral cats and this feature keeps her safe! She knows exactly how to pull the lever back to open the door! It does make me nervous sometimes after a cat is trapped that he will escape - but it hasn’t happens yet! Thanks

Great trap By Lori
Yesterday my new Havahart Easy Set Trap captured it's first critter. I was aiming for an armadillo who has been digging large holes in my yard, under my air-conditioner, and under my garage slab. I was surprised to find a large raccoon in the trap. I must say that the trap is delightfully east to set and I will continue to use the trap whenever needing to remove unwanted critters from my yard and garden.

Q&A
Q.The description states this trap is 14.2 pounds, is that accurate? Is there a page on your website that shows the comparable sizes and weights of your traps.
A.

The weight shown is the box with its packaging. The out of box weight is approximately 12 lbs. A weight comparison charg is not available.

Q.How do I set trap for small cats and kittens using small black knob on top of the handle?
A.

To increase the sensitivity, we recommend twisting the black knob, located on the top of the Easy Set® lever, in the direction that indicates increased sensitivity.While this trap may be too large for kittens, the increased sensitivity will help with capturing smaller cats. For additional assistance, please contact our Customer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242). We're happy to help!

Q.I have a Model 1079. The door lock, #1 on your directions is missing. My fault not yours. How can I safely release a squirrel without it?
A.

We recommend first checking with your Humane Society, or the local or state game commission to determine the lawful method of releasing a captured wild or nuisance animal. Lift the door up, insert a stick through both sides of the trap to prop the door open, and walk away. For more information, call 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) and visit this link
