Havahart® Small 2-Door Animal Trap

The Havahart® Small 2-Door Animal Trap will help you effectively control chipmunks, rats, squirrels and other small nuisance animals that invade your property. Designed by trapping professionals, the trap comes fully assembled and ready to use – simply bait and set. Featuring two spring-loaded doors and a sensitive trigger plate, this trap is designed for higher catch rates and fewer escapes. Plus, the one-piece high-tensile wire mesh construction with steel reinforcements protects this trap from damage by unpredictable critters.

Effective for Small Animals

The Havahart® Small 2-Door Animal Trap is carefully constructed so that small critters can’t outsmart it. The trip plate is sensitive so that lightweight animals, such as chipmunks and rats, can easily trigger it. Plus, the mesh openings are much smaller than competing traps, so little critters can't steal the bait or escape.

Built to Last

Made with premium materials, Havahart® traps are designed to endure harsh weather and unpredictable animal behavior. The industrial strength, one-piece wire mesh construction is galvanized for maximum resistance to rust and corrosion, while solid doors and steel reinforcements add to the durability of the trap to ensure a long life for your trap.

Easy to Use

You don't have to be a pro to use a Havahart® trap. This trap arrives already assembled out of the box so it’s ready to use. In addition, the simple-to-use design allows trappers of all experience levels to capture, transport, and release small animals with ease. See for yourself in this video!


Safe for You and the Animal

For You: A handle guard and solid doors protect you from coming into contact with the animal while it is inside the trap. The handle allows you to carry the trap away from your body during transport.

For The Animal: Strong door locks keep animals safely in the cage, and smooth, rolled edges prevent anxious critters from injuring themselves during transport.

Two-Door Design for Higher Catch Rates

The dual door function allows you to create a clear path from one end of the trap to the other by setting it with both ends open. Place the trap against a wall or along an animal’s path in order to capture it as it travels from either direction. In order to access the bait and get to the other opening, the animal must step on the trigger plate, resulting in a catch.

Five Stars

"Quit stalling, buy it. After 6 months of having an annoying attic critter, I bought the two door trap. I set the trap in the attic, baited with peanut butter on a cracker, and two hours later – problem solved. The freeloading chipmunk was taken back to woods.”

By now I have eight ...
Jul 20, 2023
By now I have eight or nine Havahart traps, ranging in size from "very small" to a couple that are large enough to trap something in the size range of a medium-large coyote. I bought my second new 1025 a couple of weeks ago, but have had problems with one door consistently sticking at about half-way closed, allowing the intended target to escape. I can see *no* obvious damage or distortion of the trap anywhere, and have been unable to resolve the issue myself. I called Havahart customer service agent Victor, and since I had purchased the trap while on the road, at a place too far away to make a return trip, Victor offered to send me a replacement. The 1025 was not currently in stock, however, so he asked if there was another model that might work for me. It turns out that the one-door Model 1026 is the same basic size, and I do think this might work better for gray squirrels. Even when set with only one door left open for entry, I have had gray squirrels step on the trip plate, and then turn around so fast that the door had not *quite* had time to close and lock, allowing them to escape. Victor and I discussed bait, and while peanut butter smeared on a small piece of cardboard works well for just about any target animal, during the winter months, especially, flying squirrels favor sweet fruit, with small sections of prune being very effective. (Since flying squirrels don't hibernate, or build up large fat reserves - if they did, they could no longer "fly" well - they're always on the lookout for concentrated, high-energy foods.) Many thanks to Victor for his great customer service! MarkT

Thank you for this feedback. We're sorry to hear about this recent experience and have shared these concerns with our Product Manager. The trap has a 30 day return period. We recommend reaching out to your local retailer for assistance with a return.
The 2-door version is NOT designed for squirrels.
Jun 5, 2023
The 2-door version is NOT designed for squirrels as the trap sensor is located too close to the door. Squirrels will stretch themselves out to eat things and when the trap hits, they shoot right back out before the door closes. They can do that because part of their body is still outside the trap. Will try the 1-door version next as it looks to have a longer distance to the trigger.

Thank you for this feedback. We're sorry to hear about this experience with this trap. Our two door traps can be set with only one door open. When doing so, we recommend tying the bait further back into the trap so it is more difficult to for the animal to access. Reach out to us via the Contact Us page for additional assistance.
This trap is too small for squirrels
Mar 21, 2023
This trap is too small for Texas squirrels even with one door shut and placing bait as far back as you can. Go for the Medium trap instead...IMHO.

Looks like it should work ...but
Mar 1, 2023
Looks like it should work but, so far, squirrels are winning while I'm learning lessons. Note, it is advertised for squirrels but may not be up the task and now that I've used it I can't return it. Fortunately (for me) my first "visitor" was a big skunk that did not trigger the door mechanism. A couple of squirrels have managed to steal the peanuts and eat the peanut butter before one finally tripped the doors. Unfortunately, he was faster than the door closed and was able to push it open before it locked. My security camera captured it all on video. Right now I'm 0-3 but this game isn't over and I'll change my rating if I start winning.

We are sorry to hear about this experience! Have you tested the trap on its own to see if the doors lock shut? We recommend setting it as a one door trap and placing the bait at the far side, back by the closed door. You can also try placing the bait in a PVC pipe and tying it from the roof of the trap above the trigger or the back of the trap. These will help ensure that the animal is fully inside the trap before the door closes. The trap is covered under a 1-year replacement policy. Please give us a call directly for help!

Red Squirrels can get out of this type of trap even with the locking mechanism in place. Took the last one less than 4 minutes.

We're sorry to hear you had a squirrel escape! When the locking mechanism activates correctly, it should prevent animals from freeing themselves. Please contact us at 855-542-8242 with any questions, we're happy to help.

The Havahart small cage trap worked as advertised. I set the trap near where we were having a problem with a red squirrel and I caught it within hours of the first try. The red squirrel is happily (us) relocated where it will not be a problem.

Apr 21, 2022
I bought this trap because it had a squirrel on the package. This is false advertising because this squirrel actually went in the trap and tripped both doors and got out! His tail probably kept the door from closing all the way. The next time, I closed one door and put the bait at the closed door thinking it would have to go through the bait shelf and trip the door. He made it through the other side and took the bait and got out without tripping the door!!! Bad design.. I did catch a mouse, that worked!

We are sorry to hear about this experience! If your squirrel is on the larger size, a larger trap may be needed to effectively catch the critter! We appreciate you taking the time to share this feedback with us and will be sure to pass along these comments to the Product Manager for further review. We are only ever looking to improve upon our traps, which is why your feedback is so critical. It is good to know that this product is backed by a 30 day return policy and 1 year replacement policy. Please give us a call at 855-542-8242 for assistance. - Rachel
Excellent for chipmunks
Sep 19, 2021
This is a great product to catch chipmunks. Easy to set. I caught 4 chipmunks in 4 days. I did catch 1 squirrel as well, but for squirrels you should get a larger trap. Peanut butter works perfectly as a bait. Thank you Woodstream !
