Trapping Has Never Been Easier

Endorsed by top rescue leagues around the country, this all-in-one feral cat trapping kit has everything you need to trap and care for stray and feral cats. This trap is ideal for use with Trap-Neuter-Return programs, as well as catching the pesky stray in your yard.


Set and Release with One Hand

Set this humane squirrel trap in just 1 simple step. Just pull on the patented Easy Set® lever to lock open the door, and it's ready for a catch. Best of all, the lever also allows you to release the animal while standing away from the trap, clear of the animal's escape path.

Enlarged Hand Guard and Carrying Handle Protect You

An enlarged steel plate covers the entire width of the top of the trap, protecting your hand from contact with the animal, and the updated, rigid plastic carrying handle makes the handling experience even more comfortable for you.

Safe, Rolled Metal Edges Protect the Animal

Just like the Havahart® squirrel trap you've relied on for years, this one is constructed of one-piece wire mesh, galvanized for resistance to rust and corrosion. And edges are polished smooth to protect the animal from injuring itself during transport.

No-Escape Door Lock Gives You Peace of Mind

The tightly spring-loaded door features updated door locks and added reinforcements, making your squirrel trap more escape-proof than ever.

Sensitivity Screw to Target Specific Sized Animals

This sensitivity screw allows you to tailor the trip force of the trap to the target animal. For small animals that require more sensitivity to trip the trap, turn the sensitivity screw to the left (-). Larger animals need less sensitivity, so turn the screw to the right (+), generating a less sensitive trip action. The sensitivity screw gives you the opportunity to catch only the animals you want.

A great but safe trap By Bob S
just received our Havahart 1082 for small animals. I chose this because of the easy set, which makes this trap easier and safer to use, both for you and the animal. I set the trap up yesterday and have already caught 4 chipmonks and 1 squirrel. I use bird seed as the lure and sprinkle it around the trap with a trail into the trap as well as inside the trap near the flip board. I also placed it near a wall but in an area frequented by the animals. The first morning, nothing when I only put the seeds in the trap, but once I set a trail into the trap, I started catching the critters.

I like it! By Bob
I bought this little trap for chipmunks, after having caught hundreds of squirrels with the medium size trap. Caught all the chipmunks in the first two days. Now it catches squirrels, running about even with the medium trap. I like the smaller size, the ease of setting, and the sensitivity feature. If there is a better trap out there, I'd like to know about it.

I like it! By 12gauge
I have a bit of a squirrel problem and had previously borrowed a trap fro a friend who runs a trap line. However, I don't like borrowing things , so I purchased one of your small traps which I thought might be a bit small, however after setting it out with a few peanuts in it the first one was caught within minutes. It is well made and is simple to set. I like it!

Good size for squirrels, trigger senitivity is variable. By Fernando
Very effective but one minor annoyance is better to put bait behind the trigger. I just use a small metal lid behind the trigger plate a dab on the plate and a dab at the trap entrance.
I caught 4 squirrel in 5 tries. I missed one because my trigger was set too sensitive and set off by vibrations.

Extremely Happy By Elaine

We have been overrun by squirrels! They are eating my plants and digging holes. The trap is both easy to use and just as easy to release the squirrels into a new environment. Within an hour of set up the first time we had a guest in the trap.

Good trap By RM

Trap did not attract chipmunks the first few days but then I disguised it more completely and was successful the first day after that. Trap was easy to set. I am fully satisfied with it.

Works well for catching chipmunks By Todd

I purchased this trap for catch and release of chipmunks. It is relatively easy to set-up and the bar spacing is perfect to prevent the captured chipmunks from getting caught in the bars and injuring themselves. It took a few tries to properly adjust the trip sensitivity, but the trap is otherwise well-suited for catching small rodents.

Q.Confused by your specs: This item Model #: 1082 described as SMALL one door easy set is 17 inches long by FIVE by FIVE and HALF inches width/height. And this item on your site: Model #: b1083-3 is described as a 3 pack of SMALL one door easy set traps, which are 17 inches long by SEVEN by SEVEN inches width/height. So just what size is the SMALL one door easy set trap?
The size referenced in the trap's name is indicative of the animals
the trap is designed to catch and not a reference to the trap's size.
Q.Small squirrels escape by putting nose under door when trapped. Any way to prevent this

We recommend confirming the door is locking properly, once closed, animals should not be able to lift the door from the inside.

Q.What are the dimensions of the square/rectangular hole wire mesh on the 1082 and the 1062 models?

The mesh is 1 inch by 1 inch.
