Humanely captures nuisance animals
Dimensions detail

This live animal trap is ideal for trapping small raccoons, muskrats, opossums and other similar-sized animals. Havahart two-foor cage live muskrat and small opossum traps have been designed with the safety of the animals in mind. These small raccoon traps, with two spring loaded doors, have many features to allow safe, quick and easy catches. Havahart two-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 are smaller than competing traps of comparable size to prevent escapes and stolen bait. Two spring-loaded doors allow animals to enter from either direction. Sensitive triggers ensure quick, secure captures that target the specific animal's size, eliminating undesired catches. Solid doors and handle guards protect users during transportation, while smoothed internal edges protect and prevent injuries to animals. This live animal trap is made in the U.S.A.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works!! Before this product I bought a 1025 to catch and relocate some squirrels in my yard and it did not work I tried for 2 months with this trap. After that I decided to buy this trap 1040. I set the trap and two days latter I got the squirrel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Using as a squirrel trap Purchased the larger trap for relocation of two squirrels. I used peanut butter which worked well as bait. The trap worked well, but I recommend a little practice as setting the tripping mechanism was a bit tricky. Also, for red squirrels, I definitely recommend the larger size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective at first try Ordered this trap to control ground squirrels. It's a good idea to set the trap up on a table to comfortably become familiar with it. As the instructions specify, set it and trip it several times to understand the trapping and tripping process. I placed it out in the activity area with peanut butter on bread as bait. We had noticed that for some reason the two squirrels had disappeared from our property a couple of days prior to setting the trap and have never returned since (maybe coyotes got them). I left the trap set and on the third day found a very upset skunk in it. I carefully slide the trap into a plastic trash can and took him to a wild area a couple of miles away and used a long stick to easily release the trap. The skunk immediately scooted out and wandered away. The trap is on standby should the squirrels return. I have complete confidence it will continue to do its job.
