Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by adymax Great for chipmunks
We saw few chipmunks playing in the corner of our property for a while, they did some tunnels(holes) by a pine tree roots. I tried rat poison, peppermint gum and nothing worked. I red many posts online about this trap and I decide to try it. After 2 days I got the first chipmunk, first day I only put few raisins and some mussly cereals on the tray but I realize they need to be lured in so I placed animal crackers broken in small pieces everywhere outside and inside the cage. My wife called me when I was at work and she told me that birds are around the cage eating the crackers but I got home and I could see the cage from the house and I could see that the bars holding it open where gone and then I saw something moving, we went running to see what we caught and we got the little sucker, he is seating in the cage to be released later as I write this. I hope to get many more. Great investment!

I had a problem with squirrels in my garden and under my deck. They were bold and destructive. Then, I purchased this trap.
In the first five days, I caught five squirrels and 2 chipmunks. I was able to relocate them to a better place and the trap allowed me to catch, carry and release all of them without any damage to the animals. They were even well fed, as they had the bait to nibble on while "incarcerated".
By the way, don't forget to check the Havahart website to find out what bait to use. The trap is worthless without the proper bait.
I use the larger version of this trap to catch groundhogs on my property. The results are the same, although I must say the groundhogs aren't as easy to entice into the trap.
If you have a pest animal issue, do not hesitate to purchase this product.

This is a well constructed cage that should last for years
I did need to make a slight adjustment to the trip.

This model is the best we have found for catching chipmunks. It is constructed well, and has the sensitivity needed to close the doors once the chipmunk has touched the rocking platform inside.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CritterCatcher How to FIX this trap!
There is a flaw, either in the manufacturing or packaging process of this trap. If you use the trap right out of the box, it may only catch the animal if they step on the "correct" side of the bait-tray. If they step on the "wrong" side of the bait-tray, the trap will start to close, and stop, and will no longer trap, no matter what they touch. The actuator-rods on the side get tangled into each-other if the "wrong" side is pressed.
The rods that connect the bait-tray to the doors are too close to the trap side. Just pull the "moveable" rod ends away from the trap about 1/4". Then, reset the trap, and test it by pushing on EACH side of the bait tray with a pencil through the SIDE of the trap. It should now work when either side of the bait-tray is pushed. If not, bend the rods a little more, and try it again.
Hope this helps.

Out of the box very easy to use. QUICK and sensitive trigger makes trapping work. Available for a quick pickup at my local store. Fast service when purchased through the Internet.

This trap was easy to set up right out of the box and we were able to trap five small endangered kittens and bring them to safety. Perfect size for small animals.

A good trap but the Possum family moved out before I could use it.
