Expert-Tested Trap Technology

Trapping nuisance animals has never been easier! Patented Easy Set technology allows you to set your trap with one pull of a lever. Expert tested and proven effective, Havahart Easy Set Traps are the most robust traps on the market, constructed with rust-resistant galvanized steel and sturdy hardware, making the handling experience safe and comfortable.

Easy to Set & Release

Simply bait the trap and then pull back the Easy Set lever to set it with a single hand. The trip plate's sensitivity targets the animal's specific size and weight, while a solid spring-loaded door ensures a quick and secure capture.

Safe for You and the Animal

Inside the cage, smooth, rounded edges and a sturdy door lock keep the animal safely inside; while a solid hand guard limits contact with the carrier. And a rigid carry handle makes it easy to carry even large animals at a safe distance from your person.

Step-by-Step Trapping Guide


Step 1: Place bait in back of trap

Armadillos: Meal worms, sardines.

Groundhogs: Cantaloupe, sweet corn, lettuce.

Opossums: Vegetables, sweet apples.

Stray Cats: Fish, sardines, canned tuna.

Raccoons: Fish, marshmallows.


Step 2: Set the trap

Set the live animal trap in the location of the nuisance animal. You can camouflage the trap by placing twigs and leaves on top. You can also leave an unset baited trap for a few days to entice the animal.


Step 3: Check the trap regularly

Animals can become stressed if caged for long periods of time. Hot and cold weather conditions can also harm the animal.

Expert Trapping Tips
  • Check traps frequently
  • Trapped animals should not be left out in the elements, as they can die from prolonged exposure to heat and cold
  • When catching animals inside, place the trap along walls, under stairs, or where you suspect they are entering the building
  • Consult your local game commission for rules and regulations on how and where wildlife may be released

FAQs

Q: What bait should I use for my target animal?

  • Squirrels: Cereal, grains, nuts (especially peanuts) sunflower seeds, anise oil (a drop or two on bread), shelled corn, or apples.
  • Armadillos: Meal worms, other worms, or insects enclosed in a little cloth bag, maggots, or sardines.
  • Chipmunks: Prune pits, un-roasted peanuts, corn, sunflower seeds, peanut butter, cereal, grains, or popcorn.
  • Groundhogs: Fresh string beans, sweet corn, lettuce, peas, cantaloupe, strawberries, cucumbers, peaches, or vanilla extract.
  • Opossums: Vegetables, sweet apples, chicken entrails, sardines, crisp bacon, or canned cat food.
  • Skunks: Chicken entrails, cracknels, fish-canned or fresh-insect larvae such as may beetles, crisp bacon, or cat food.
  • Porcupines: Apples, salt, or carrots.
  • Rabbits: Fresh vegetables (brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, lettuce), or apples. In the wintertime, bread is a good bait. Spraying the inside of the trap with apple cider is also effective.
  • Stray Cats: Fish, meats, oil of catnip, sardines, canned tuna, or chicken.
  • Raccoons: Fish, fresh or canned, honey or sugar covered vegetables, smoked fish, watermelon, sweet corn, cooked fatty meat, crisp bacon, or marshmallow.
Q: Okay, I''ve safely caught the animal, now what should I do?
A: We recommend contacting the Humane Society, or the local or state game commission to determine the lawful method of releasing a captured wild or nuisance animal before setting the trap. Many species are protected by law in various states.

Q: What are the advantages of using a two-door trap versus a one-door trap?
A: Most people use two-door traps with more cautious animals like squirrels. The thought is that if the animal can see an unblocked path through the trap (since both doors are open), they will have more confidence entering the cage. On the other hand, one-door traps allow the animal to walk further in and past the trip plate. Havahart traps offer both one-door and two-door Easy Set traps to satisfy all customers.

Q: Where should I place the bait?
A: Place some bait on top of the trip plate and some more under the trip plate. You can also place the bait just above the trip plate on the ceiling of the trap. You can even secure or fasten the bait to the mesh by using string or a garbage bag twist tie. This forces the animal to stand on the trigger plate in order to reach the bait. It’s important that the bait isn’t placed in an area where the animal can reach it through the mesh without entering the trap.

Q: What should I do if I catch a skunk?
A: First, find an old cloth, towel or sheet that can be used to cover the trap. Next, approach the trap cautiously, holding the trap covering in front of you. Make sure the covering extends to the ground while holding it--don''t let the skunk see your feet coming as this may alarm the animal. When you''re close enough to the trap, gently cover the trapped animal--trap and all.

I have a cat door to my utility room and a raccoon discovered he can get in and eat the cat food.

So I bought this trap so I could get him and take him up into the hills and release him there.
My cat went in and set the trap and he just stood there and cried until I let him out. The raccoon is bigger, stronger and smarter than my cat.

One night I had the cat door closed and I heard the raccoon banging on it trying to get in so I went and watched him. I put some dry cat food in the trap and the raccoon goes in and starts to eat the food and I see him set the trap.

But it only held him for 3 seconds. He just turned around and pushed the door open and left.

The door is not heavy and it is easy for raccoons to just push the door open and leave. There is no latching mechanism to keep the door locked shut once the trap is triggered.

Trap arrived assembled. I followed the directions and set the trigger plate to its highest sensitivity as I was trying to trap an Opossum living under my house. I knew where it came and went from and obviously put the trap there. I used peanut butter and some leaf lettuce on and behind the plate so the critter would have to walk over or stand on the trigger plate which covers the entire width of the trap. My motion security camera caught the motion of the Opossum come out from under my house. Noticed the food and walked into the trap. It was able to nibble at the peanut butter, and then grab the pieces of lettuce and then turn around and walk right back out. The camera shows it stepping on and even standing on while tasting the peanut butter. Yet the trap never sprung! I have no idea what thing full grown adult Opossum might weigh, but if the trap wasn’t garbage it should have worked! I sent it back the following day for my full refund.

UPDATE: Second trap failed too, first use. This is just not able to stand up to a determined animal. I''m returning the second one and I''ll try another one. While I love the design and ease of use, it''s just not strong enough.

I''ve been borrowing my neighbor''s trap for two years now. He doesn''t seem to mind, and I''ve bagged 7 Armadillos, 2 raccoons, and an opossum. Never had one false trap. Last week, he needed it for a cousin, so I got this one for myself. I had this trap out 3 days and finally saw it had triggered. Imagine my disappointment when I saw that I had apparently bagged the hulk. Well, maybe not the hulk, but some kind of super animal. Or maybe the problem is that this is a cheap trap. It seems sturdy enough. I don''t know. I''ve ordered another one just to be sure, and I''ll modify this review if the next one works.

I followed the instructions, which weren''t really necessary because this trap has a VERY simple set mechanism/handle on the top. The problem was that the u-shaped locking bar, which attaches at the top of the trap, was bent by the animal. As I say, I don''t know which animal I had, but I have never even seen an Armadillo move once they were in the trap, so I don''t think it was an Armadillo. I had a large male Raccoon and a smaller female in my neighbor''s trap, and neither of them seemed to fight much. They both ran away when I let them out. The Armadillos had to be encouraged to leave. The opossum was the one who bloodied his jaws trying to escape, but never could. It might have been an opossum.

But in any case, the trap is toast, so I''m sending it back and getting another one. It seems like a really good design, so maybe this one was just defective. I''ve read about other traps being flimsy, and I want to know if this is one of those. The reviews were overall positive, so I hope the next one works. I''ll let you know. Dang armadillos are digging up my yard in Florida something fierce. We also had 9 cases off leprosy last year. No kidding. Look it up. All people who had contact with these cute but dangerous creatures.

The 1st night after receiving this, I caught a large raccoon. I took the critter about 8 miles away and easily released it with the very easy to use release mechanism. Having so many critters (raccoons and opossums) in my neighborhood, I immediately ordered a 2nd one. I have been catching raccoons and opossums every week since. I have tested the traps repeatedly by poking a rod through the cage to activate the pressure plate, and then try to simulate an escape attempt by pushing the rod against the door with extreme force. The door will not open. I''ve seen some of the other reviewers state that raccoons can push the trap door open and escape. The only way I can see that this could happen is if the animal were able to roll the cage over and upside down. None of my critters has done that yet, and I have caught and relocated 13 of them. Very pleased with my purchases.

Finally had a armadillo, I assume as the trap was right at the hole to the den and I have see the animal in the area, get into the trap but it was able to force the trap door open and escape. The trap door and in particular the spring loaded bar that locks it in the down position are two flimsy for an adult size armadillo obviously. The animal was able to bend the locking bar and trap door to such an extent that it was able to escape and leave the trap completely unuseable. The spring itself is a joke and was easily bent out of position. Chip clips and clothespins have much more sturdy springs. In looking at the trap locking mechanics you can see that there is very little safeguarding the locking bar other than the smooth ridge on the bottom of the trap door. There is no positive locking mechanism in the down position. This trap was a complete waste of time and money. Maybe it would work for squirrels or very small juvenile armadillos and opossums. Funny thing is that the important qualities the product video mentions you want in a good, solidly built animal trap are the very things that were missing on this one and caused it to fail. Very disappointed.

We filmed a RACCOON jumping into our fruit tree from a high fence at 3 am one night, solving the critter mystery. After reading many reviews for various traps, we chose this one because of:
(1) the easy & uncomplicated set-up
(2) the safety features :
a large metal plate on top, under the handle & another at the front of the cage -to protect our hands.
(3) the cage sturdyness & strong locking mechanism
(4) the smaller holes at the rear of the cage to prevent a critter from stealing the bait from outside the trap
(5) the sensitivity adjuster -so we can catch various sized critters.
1st morning we were surprised we''d caught a small opossum instead of a raccoon. He''s the star in the attached video. (Guess he dines earlier than the local raccoon & got there first.)
BAIT was 3 marshmallows and a $1.29 can of sardines in oil, opened half-way & laid flat in the back of the cage. (The sardine juice was sprinkled around the cage first.) Mr RACCOON is next & we''ll use the same bait.
This cage is well-designed & we are surprised at how easy it is to use. We are VERY Pleased with this purchase!
EDIT ADD-ON:
Have caught 4 opossums now- in quick succession! We leave the trap in the same spot under our tree.
Still haven''t caught Mr. Raccoon. He may be staying away for a while-might have seen one of the captive opossums in the cage & scared him off. The raccoon comes at 3 am, the opossums come much earlier- around midnight. Have added some peeled tangerines to the bait of sardines & marshmallows-since that''s what they come after. We caught a big housecat one night- he ate the sardines. (Of course we let him go.)

I read the reviews before I purchased this trap. Most were five star, but a few people were dissatisfied. I thought the trap was well made and ready to go. It was easily armed and not too easily triggered as others experienced. We called a wildlife trapper in our area and the quote was $210 to bring his trap and $85 to remove the animal - each time, if there is more than on nuisance animal. I bought this trap plus kevlar wildlife handling gloves (almost to the elbow) for around $70 for both. I was concerned that we would be too chicken to go near the trap with an animal in it and the fee to transfer it from my trap to the trapper''s trap was $95 (using my trap). If you do the math, you can see that this investment already paid off. (For bait, we used a stale blueberry scone, apple slices, the woody ends of asparagus, and a sliver of the cooked fat cut from a porkchop. Put all this in a baggie and shook to get the scent well disbursed.) I hear that we also have raccoons in the neighborhood. If there is a large angry raccoon, I can see that a heavy trap could be in order, but this one is fine for the average possum, rabbit, etc. I''m very happy with this purchase so far.

Update: It''s a racoon catcher all right! Smeared peanut butter on the pressure plate and a little food at the end to keep him moving. Relocated safely to new woods. After reading many reviews about this trap, I wasn''t sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised after opening and inspecting the product. What I found was a large and comfortable crate with small openings between the steel gauge wire that an animal could safely be trapped in for a small amount if time with out injuring them selves; some of the holes in the cage I could not fit my pinky finger into, not even the tip, others were slightly larger. Setting the trap is incredibly easy and takes only 1 step; simply slide the grey handle found on the top of the cage backwards firmly until trap door lifts and locks in place securely. That''s it, you''re done. The plate inside the cage that triggers the release mechanism to slam the door shut feels very good, not flimsy or temperamental. I don''t believe this trap would be set off accidentally by being bumped by an animal, only direct foot traffic over the plate would cause a release. I read reviews stating the animals were able to push the door back up an escape but I have not found any reason to suspect that with this unit I received. After setting the trap off I tried to lift it, pry at it, pull on it with a reasonable amount of force and had no vulnerabilities appear. No trap is fool proof but I don''t see this trap having any thing to be concerned about, it feels very secure after my testing. I''ve caught 2 stray cats already and surrendered them to a shelter for rehabilitation and hopefully adoption but the racoons have eluded thus far; I suspect I need to try other bait as per recommended on the side of the box the cage comes packed inside.

This trap has an interesting hair pin trigger trap door design. We live very close to a ravine that runs into the river which again isn''t that far away so we get a good number of critters wandering up our way sometimes causing us grief in the garden. Like other HavaHart live animal traps its well-built and sturdy enough to handle some larger animals. I appreciate that the trap comes fully assembled, there is nothing you need to do other than provide bait when setting it up. I like the way you open or set the trap door. It''s a design I''ve not seen before and makes setting or releasing an animal very easy. To set or open it you release the stop wire that keeps the door locked but this has also been made easy to do, you then simply pull back on the handle located at the top center where the carry handle is. As you draw it back a cable attached to it pulls back and opens the door. The trigger requires very little to set it off, this is both a good and a bad thing, allow me to explain. ~It''s nice in that even the slightest pressure closes the trap door, there shouldn''t be any animals that can get in and turn around without getting caught. ~The problem here is that if an animal is snooping around the outside of the trap and bumps it the trap, the door is already closing. Our neighbours cat Bubba set it off for us while we were outside as he was snooping around looking for treats, he''s a regular in our traps and I think he''s got it in his head that we put out treats specifically for him. He''s one those cats that even when trapped he''s cool as a cucumber, purring and all happy. I don''t wish him any ill will but I do wish he''d be at least a little upset about getting caught so he''d stay out of the traps. ~There is no adjusting the trigger so we can''t compensate for this out of the cage action. ~The trigger operates by pulling on a bar that is hooked to another bar attached to the trigger handle. This is exposed and again an animal can set off the trap by rubbing against the rod. We end up placing a plank up against that side of the trap to keep animals from this area. A feature that appeals to me, both handles - door release and carry handle, are shielded from the inside by a piece of sheet metal that coves the top portion of the cage where they are located. This keeps paws and claws from scratching you. One concern I have with this and any trap even though it is a fairly wide cage, if you get a large enough animal inside of it there is a possibility that as they struggle they could roll it. If this happens, and it has with other traps we''ve had out, the trap door won''t open but the animal could be hurt and that''s not what we want when trapping them. HavaHart could include a couple of 24 inch metal rods, with a little hook or large washer at the top which would catch on the top bars, which could be used to insert though the cage on either side or then pushed into the ground. This would make it impossible (unless a good sized coyote decided to play with it) for an animal either inside or out to cause the trap to roll. So far besides Bubba we did manage to catch a Magpie and one of this years younger skunks, the trigger is sensitive enough that a bigger bird can set if off. Overall the 1085 is a great live animal trap that allows for the relocation of wayward animals that come into our garden back to areas where they won''t be bothered or bother people. But I still have no idea how were going to keep Bubba out of our cages.

Every year, we have a visitor sometimes in our backyard – a groundhog. This year I have learned from my neighbor that this groundhog is literally living under her shed. She was concerned about it because it is digging tunnels there. Personally I was concerned for my children and her son. When I checked out with our city, I have learned that we would have to call a specialist in order to remove the critter from our vicinities and pay for it ourselves. One solution would be to get a catch and release cage trap in order to catch the groundhog. Once caught, the animal can be released within a 1 km radius of the location where it was trapped. Also an animal should not be in a cage for more than 24 hours or be killed by the person who catch it. The Havahart 1085 one-door cage trap will allow you to catch bigger critters like raccoons, stray cats, groundhogs or opossums. I suppose you could also catch smaller animals like squirrels, rabbits, and so on. I am very impressed with the construction and the facility to use this cage. The handles are strong and sturdy which is great to carry trap or open the door. Yes it is big in size but it can be very useful to own one when you have various animals living in your neighborhood. Once while taking a walk, we have seen a family of raccoons crossing the road. Not something you wish to have in your backyard when you have children – trust me. The handle is easy to lift up in order to leave the door open. All you have to do is put the appropriate bait into the trip plate. If you are wondering what kind of food you would need to catch the animal that visit your backyard, do not worry about it because a list of suggested baits is included with the cage. For example, for a groundhog, you would need crisp bacon, fish, fresh vegetables or cat food. Once the food is placed in the cage, all you have to do is to place the cage at the place where the animal visits. Once you catch the animal, you will have to bring it at a safe place to release it. To release the animal, re-open the door by lifting the handle in a lock position. It is strongly suggested to wear gloves when handling a trap that contains an animal. Also stay clear until the animal has left the trap. Always check with your city to discover the rules and regulations concerning the move of an animal. Also never leave children near a captured animal.
