How do you set the senseative

Asked by Chip September 23, 2018

Answers

I modified the trap to make it more sensitive by attaching a small weight (car lug nut) using duct tape, to the vertical wire on the outside of the cage that attaches to the "trigger" sheet metal panel. A second sensitivity modification is to tape a small piece of cardboard underneath the gray grip handle on the top of the cage. These two modifications allow the trap door to close with only the slightest weight applied to the trigger panel.

Is this big and safe enough for kittens? Stray mama whose kittens are old enough to socialize.

I would not use this for kittens but if you are trapping a wild animal then it would be useful to use. You may want to use this for trapping for the mamma cat in this as you can lure her in with leaving food in the crate and once she steps in there is a small metal flat surface that she will step on and this is when the upper door will automatically close on her. Then you can go back and grab her babies. I just think that have kittens in there is not a safe place. Also, about tow years ago I had to buy and set one up for a baby raccoon that was in our crawl space underneath our apartment. So, I tricked him into getting in there by leaving food during the night and day. We eventually released him about 10 miles away from where we lived but this was so scary to deal with. Try using a small box or crate for the baby kittens. (you can email me if you have any questions). Good luck to you!

Set it up on Sunday, quickly caught mother squirrel in attic, followed by 3 juveniles in the next couple of days. Easy to set up. We used the bottom of a yogurt cup with peanut butter attached to the bottom with a twist tie, which can be seen on the left in the picture. Has a weight adjustment to make sure it will trigger for the smaller animals. It is nice and shiny, easy to hose off without any sign of rust so far. Very sturdy, but not too heavy, with a comfortable carry handle and easy release. We do recommend wrapping it in a tarp to keep the animal calm while you relocate it.

I caught 28 squirrels, 9 rats, 2 opossums & one bird in less than 6 months at my house in Irvine, CA. I set the trap on top of my 5 foot high wooden fence & tied it down so the trapped animals won't knock the trap off the 6 inch wide fence top. I baited the trap with a single peanut placed under the "trigger" sheet metal panel that's located on the bottom. I even caught 5 squirrels without any bait. I modified the trap to make it more sensitive by attaching a small weight (car lug nut) using duct tape, to the vertical wire on the outside of the cage that attaches to the "trigger" sheet metal panel. A second sensitivity modification is to tape a small piece of cardboard underneath the gray grip handle on the top of the cage. These two modifications allow the trap door to close with only the slightest weight applied to the trigger panel. Only negative is that the wire grid size opening allows most rats to get their head through the wire grid & hang themselves. Removing the rats requires using a big shovel & beheading the rat.

Great trap - it works!! Trapped 8 squirrels the first week. I had one of their older traps (the one with double doors) it never worked-it was hard to set and easy to spring, squirrels would always get the bait and get away. However this new cage is foolproof, easy to set and easy to release the squirrel. For bait - I use a pretzel or cracker spread with peanut butter and then some peanuts on top (unshelled peanuts). Place it in the back with a couple of other peanuts. Then put a tiny piece of the same (one peanut) in the middle of the cage and a couple of peanuts outside the cage by the opening. ALSO - I took an old black t-shirt, cut it in 1/2, then cut a small slit for the cage handle. When I catch one I drape the t-shirt over the cage, they can't see out and it keeps them more calm and sedate while transferring them (at least 4 miles away).

Squirrels have for some reason targeted my house and are chewing holes in everything! I have used this trap repeatedly with great success. It is by far the easiest Havahart trap I've used (I have two others-different models). Between this model and another one I like both set, I have caught 61 squirrels-no exaggeration! The only problem I had was when I caught a neighborhood skunk (twice!). The trigger plate is so sensitive that the skunk kept backing up on it while trying to exit the cage and closing the trap door. He was getting angry and I didn't want to suffer the result of this anger! I placed a rock on top of the handle to keep the door from closing again, then ran in the other direction...success! Simple and extremely easy to set and release; solid construction; I highly recommend!

I love this easy to set and release live trap by Havahart for squirrels, rabbits, skunks, chipmunks, and possums. It is not big enough for groundhogs and racoon's but I have several traps of various sizes and this one performs better than expected and easier to release the animal than my other live traps by other makers. You have no exposure to the business end of the animal when releasing it. I have fruit trees, a large veggie garden, and a koa pond. I get a lot of destructive animals on my property. This product allows me to remove unwanted animals in a humane way to transfer them to a location where they can live out their life without harming human productivity.
