Havahart Large 1-Door cage Traps, designed and used by professional trappers, have one spring loaded door for safe, secure catches. Animal control officers also trust and use these live raccoon and groundhog traps so can you. Havahart Large 1-Door Cage Traps are constructed of sturdy rust-resistant wire mesh with steel reinforcements for long life and galvanized for maximum resistance to rust and corrosion. Mesh openings of our groundhog traps are smaller than competing traps of comparable size to prevent escapes and stolen bait. Spring loaded doors and sensitive triggers ensure quick, secure captures that target the specific animal's size, eliminating undesired catches. Solid doors and handle guards of our ground hog traps protect users during transportation, while smoothed internal edges protect and prevent injuries to animals. These raccoon and groundhog traps are made in the USA.

  • 1-Spring loaded door
  • Live traps are ideal for catching raccoons, stray cats, groundhogs (woodchucks), opossums, armadillos and similar-size nuisance animals
  • Smoothed internal edges protect and prevent injuries to animals
  • Trigger rod is located outside of the trap so animal cannot damage it while in the trap

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 think this would be overkill for squirrels. It's sized more for raccoons and cats. I would recommend this trap for squirrels: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Havahart-Medium-2-Door-Animal-Cage-Trap-1030/100348069

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.

Answer: 
No. You will have to push on the part that will open the door by hand. Attaching a string will only drag the cage.

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.

Answer: 
The trap cannot be opened by pulling on a string. If a skunk were to be in the trap, approach the trap slowly. Gently drape a sheet over the top of the trap and move the trap slowly.

Answer: 
the trip is set as loose as it gets, try setting a small heavy bowl made of suramic all the way to the rear and center of the cage to make them go all the way to the back and they will trip it. If you put loose food in it they will reach for it and not touch the trip pan

Answer: 
The trap can be adjusted to be more sensitive in a couple of different ways. We can add weight to the trigger plate with small pebbles. Another suggestion would be that when the door is lifted open and set on the trigger, so that it is only hanging on the tip of the hook. Reducing the metal-to-metal contact will make the trap easier to spring.

there is a finger hold on the bottom of the door, put a heavy string or small rope through it so when you disengage the latch you can hold the door open from behind the trap.

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!

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.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 242 reviewers.
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 4.0 out of 5.0 by perfect had an opossum coming up on the porch after the dog & cats food at night and was using DP coon traps around the porch but didnt want to catch one of the cats in one because they will break their leg if caught, after a week and a half useing the DP traps with no success I went to HD last night and bought this trap with hopes that it would hold up. Set it on the porch and used fruit cocktail in a bowl to lure it in and got up this morning and caught it without a fuss. Held up nicely for an opossum but they usually dont put up a fuss and get rowdy when caught. Real test of durability will be a coon. Its a little wobbley and think a coon would tear it up and escape but for now it did a great job catching the opossum. Turned it loose a mile down the road near a creek. May 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for larger animals such as raccoon's, bobcats, rabbits and other animals who become pests. Had a Raccoon problem and this trap captured the critter on the second try after I learned how to place the bait in the trap. Since the animal weighed about 25 lbs according to animal control it was more that adequate to keep the animal securely caged until it could be removed. May 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It Works Had a bad armadillo issue tearing up beds and lawn. Got fed up and finally ordered one of these cages. Used no bait and put it against the side of the house where most of the damage was occurring. The very next day the trap was sprung but the armadillo had gotten out. Problem was the tension bar that holds the door shut is held in place on the door by overlapped metal. Well the overlapped metal was not squeezed enough in manufacturing enabling the tension bar to slip out. Compressed the overlapping metal to the tension bar much more securely and problem was solved. Caught 4 armadillo's over the next five nights transported them over 5 miles and have not seen them since. Have not had any issues either with digging or further armadillo's in over 3 weeks. Trap still working very well for it catches possums about 1 every three days which I just release for they are not an issue to me. Don't clean it keep it smelling from the previous catch, Female smell attracts all the males. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did the Job in One Night I live inside the city limits but recently a family of possums have been eating my cats' food from their automatic feeder eating as much as 8 pounds in one night. I purchased the animal cage to catch and release the creatures safely in a forest nearby. I caught my first possum within an hour of setting it just at dusk. I caught 3 others within the next week and now I'm possum free! It's easy to use and worked like a charm. December 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Large Animal Cage I was concerned it would be to small for those pesky raccoons.. But it's not. Works great and easy to use. May 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth every penny! After trying many deterrents for feral cats invading our backyard (including an expensive motion water sprinkler) we finally decided to go with the trap. Called animal control to confirm same day pickup, went to Home Depot purchased trap, took the assembled product and set it up that same night (extremly easy to bait and set-up). Now 3 days later have caught 3 feral cats with animal control coming before noon every time. Great product, recommend highly!!! March 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Reliable, well made, sturdy!!! The Havahart large 1 door live animal cage trap works great. In one months time, I was able to trap, and relocate 1 ground hog, 3 possums, and 4 cats!!! October 13, 2015
