I would rather have a trap too big than too small, but I just wanted to make sure this trap would be suitable for catching regular to large size squirrels? Thanks

Answer: 
I have squirrels in my back yard... MANY squirrels. However, with 4 days of trapping cats, not a single squirrel went into the trap. I think I would go with a smaller (and less expensive) trap for squirrels. Also, if the weather is extreme, please monitor the trap every 15 minutes. It would be inhumane to freeze an animal or cook one alive in the trap.

This is probably the weakest aspect of this trap. There's a spring-loaded frame that holds the trap door shut. You put your index finger through the loop in the spring, press down on the frame, and lift up the trap door. Then you insert a stick that you provide (no kidding) through the cage under the trap door to hold it open. You can do all this from the side of the trap; you don't have to be in front Read More

You can stand to the side while opening the cage. I would suggest having someone stand by with something (my husband had a bow rake!) to swing at it in case the animals tries to come at you when exiting. After you catch the animal, I would not do anything to provoke it. Just drive it as far away as possible and let it out. The raccoon I caught turned out to be more scared of us than we were of him! Once I got the trap door open, the sucker took off and never looked back - ran as far away from us as he could get!
You may want to practice opening the door before setting the trap so you know exactly what to do once you have your animal trapped. Read Less

Answer: 
We recommend first covering the trap with a blanket to help keep the animal calm. From the back of the trap, carefully reach around to the front and lift the door lock. The door can then be lifted and a stick can be inserted through both sides of the trap to help secure the door in the open position. Then walk away from the trap and the animal should leave.

You can tie a string to the hook that holds the trap door open when the trap is set. The string would have to run parallel to the length of the trap.

Answer: 
You should be able to accomplish this by putting a heavy low profile object towards the front of the cage on the top once the trap is set like a barbell weight or a slab of concrete. You need something heavy so that when you pull the rope it doesn't pull the cage upwards which it will without a weight.
Set your trap then add the weight then run the line over the weight towards the rear as far as you can.

Set your trap then add the weight then run the line over the weight towards the rear as far as you can. Practice as to how much weight it will take to pull door up without pulling cage up. Glad I don't have a skunk issue. I use weight always on top of my cage not for your issue but to keep larger animals from rolling the cage as they struggle as they are first caught. Safer for the animal and for me as the cage is always upright when I arrive.

Several that I captured was pretty good sized, filling the cage. One tore up the lawn where I'd put the cage trying to dig his way out. Another tore up all the patio plants he could reach while trying to escape. I had an earlier model that a raccoon actually broke out of; this one seems a little sturdier

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 293 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Catches big ones and smaller ones Been trying for the last month to rid the yard of squirrels, which are decimating the fruit trees. Total so far: 4 raccoons, 1 opossum, 7 squirrels, and 1 mourning dove. I caught the raccoons and the opossum using peanut butter on fruit as bait, leaving the trap out overnight under the trees. Hav-a-heart makes a a smaller trap for "small squirrels," but it seemed too small to me. The box for the smaller trap said to use peanut butter as bait for squirrels. I saw one squirrel walk into the trap, sniff the peanut butter from a safe distance, then walk out of the trap. Instead, I've been successful with roasted peanuts in the shell and roasted sunflower seeds in the shell from the supermarket, I dropped 6-8 peanuts in, mostly at the end, and sprinkled a few dozen sunflower seeds from outside the trap all the way in. I then put the trap out during the day (not at night - I didn't want any more raccoons) under our bird feeders . Putting the trap under the tree in the daytime should also work -- we'll see. Still more squirrels to go. August 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tarp caught 3 raccoons and 1 skunk so far. Trap works great!! August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works In 2 days I "relocated" 2 bunnies & 1 squirrel. I used some birdseed for bait in a jar lid to keep it from falling through to the ground. I'm not sure if a smaller trap may have also worke but this is working. July 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product that works for getting rid of critters ! The item is pricey at $50 but it works. I've tried animal repellents and its just a total waste of money. I've also tried sonic deterrent but that also does not work. I just bought this awhile ago ( about 1 hour ago ) and instantly set it. Attached is the picture where I caught one after setting it in an hour. You'll still see that I forgot to remove the price tag as I was too excited to use and caught one already. Well worth it ! July 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works - as long as you put the food in the right spot! Had a raccoon taking up residence under my deck. So I got this trap and a cheddar cheese biscuit from Red Lobster and put some bacon grease on top (wasn't giving it my good Applewood smoked bacon from the Amish market!). I put the biscuit way in the back - the sucker got in, ate it, AND LEFT! So, on the second try, I put some steak scraps right on the part the animal needs to step on. Got him (or her)! So the trick is to put the food right on the part that trips the door closed. The cage is very sturdy - the raccoon was moving himself around but could not get out. I just think it's rather pricey at almost $50 but I would recommend the product. March 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sturdy trap I had a nuisance animal in my garage, wasn't sure what it was but it was making a huge mess. I bought this trap from Home Depot online and picked it up in the store. The door of the trap is a little stiff at first which is to be expected but once I had the trap set I tested it and the door shut quickly. There is even a video on Utube showing how to operate the trap. I had my "critter" in the trap the next morning and was very pleased. August 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent! This trap is very effective. Easy to use and causes no harm to the animals. I've already trapped and relocated several wild animals with this product. I do recommend covering the trap when attemping to catch skunks lol. I did catch a skunk with it the 2nd day after purchase and it was quite the smelly experience. Overall, a great product. No cons about this product. August 23, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not strong enough for an Armadillo A fine cage for many animals; however, if you are planning on catching an armadillo, you may want to look for something a bit more sturdy. Great for possums, Raccoons, etc. August 23, 2016
