About This Product

The Havahart Large 1-Door Animal Trap is an all-metal cage that's been designed by professional trappers. It features a spring-loaded door for safe, secure catches. Animal control officers also trust and use these live animal traps so can you. Use it to trap raccoons, opossums, skunks, armadillos, groundhogs and other similar-sized animals. Havahart one-door animal cage traps are constructed of sturdy, rust-resistant wire mesh with steel reinforcements and measure approximately 32 in. L. Each trap is built to last and galvanized for maximum resistance to rust and corrosion. This trap includes mesh openings that are smaller than competing traps of comparable size, which prevent escapes and stolen bait. A solid, locking door and sensitive trigger ensures quick, secure capture that targets a specific animal size while eliminating undesired catches. Solid handle guards also protect the user while transporting an animal. At the same time, smoothed internal edges protect and prevent the animal from injuring itself.

Q:My arms aren’t long enough to put the food in and out. I also can’t find friends who have long enough arms. Can the back of the trap be accessed any other way?

Answer This Question

A:  Put the food under the trap prior to placement. It also forces the animal to work harder to get the food and stay in trap longer making it more likely to trigger. Also put food around trap to make it less obvious you want the animal inside the trap.

    A:  You can use a trash grabber tool to place the bait food in the trap.

        Q:The kitten stepped on the plate ate the food and left. The kitten did not spring the trap.

        Answer This Question

        A:  Kittens will likely be too small to trigger this large trap. We do not have any recommendations on how to make it more sensitive and would recommend using a smaller sized trap.

                Got the culprit in 1 day
                I got this big guy in 1 day. Used water melon and put it in his path. Good product.

                  Trap works, but needs to be on firm level ground or trigger may not release due to large cage flexing. BTW- I add extra wire upholstery crimps for extra security.

                  This trap worked amazingly well. The same day I bought it, I caught the raccoon in my attic. 10/10.

                  Got my cat back inside
                  My indoor cat got out and ran every time I got within ten feet of her. She was very scared but when I saw she was coming home to eat food I'd put out I immediately got this live trap. I got her the first night it was out! She's now back sleeping at the foot of my bed. I don't know how I'd have gotten her back inside without it. I took my other cat outside on a leash to help spread home scents around, and he was interested in it right away, not nervous around it. That's the picture I included.

                    Be patient
                    Placed the trap on its side with a trail of treats leading to it and slices of cantaloupe/watermelon at the very back of the trap. We did this for a few days to get the groundhog used to entering. Put block on top of the upright set trap in the morning and as soon as he came to eat, he was trapped first try! Wear rubber gloves to handle food and trap to keep your scent off of everything. Wipe cantaloupe juice on all sides of trap. Don’t set at night and try not to leave it in the trap too long.

                      Unreliable Trap
                      I purchased Havahart's model 1079 trap, which is marketed to catch armadillos. I used this trap successfully in the past but be aware that animals will escape this trap often. Havahart recommends you check the trap every 30 minutes, but this is not realistic when trapping a nocturnal animal. This requires the customer to essentially stay up all night, which is simply impractical. They will replace the trap if it is damaged within 1 year but be aware afterwards, they will not.

                          Saved our indoor cat's life!
                          Out indoor cat escaped Tuesday night. And after posting flyers and going door to door in our neighborhood; we sighted our cat under a shed not far from the house. He was too scared to come to us. We set up this trap Friday morning near the shed and caught another cat that evening. But next morning we caught our cat! Thank Jesus! This trap saved our cats life! Worth every penny!!! This was the only way to capture a scared cat. Don't lose hope!
