Review RateNot escape proof & poor customer support
Last year I rented a Havahart from the county parks department to catch armadillos. It was a sturdy older model. The 1079 I bought on Amazon is flimsier, but it has caught some animals. One objection is the handle is insufficient to carry the trap level with a critter at either end. I'm tempted to clasp an over-the-shoulder luggage strap to each end. The other objection is having to hold the door manually or use a stick to hold the door open for releasing. Would a latch have been so hard to include on this model? My big worry is this... I checked the trap today and an animal had managed to escape! The locking mechanism ("door lock frame") was laying on the ground and the wires were bent up by the door lock. Probably raccoons. I've contacted Woodstram using their online form for a replacement--we'll see how they respond. My 30-day Amazon return window closed last week. UPDATE: A week later and no reply from Woodstream.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratewould not buy again
Easy to use but didn't work for us. Raccoon was able to eat bait repeatedly without triggering the trap. I think the product miss strategically placed steel plate to prevent the critter from using the side and roof to climb over the trigger plate. We tried to change the context (relocate it, conceal it in different ways) with no help. Now it got into my attic to nest and did a lot of damage.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWily Armadillo
Havahart stands behind their products. I recently had a “Wily armadillo” that actually broke out of the cage by pushing the door backward somehow, after I sent pictures and voiced my concerns, they sent me a new trap and suggested I put a heavy weight on the top to prevent the door latch from being pushed. Armidillos are difficult to catch because you have to “channel” them into the trap, but I’ve trapped them before (over 40 in a borrowed Havahart trap). I hope to catch this little versaraptor soon!
Review RateIf you need to trap raccoons..........this is the trap to get!
Have caught 10 raccoons in 3 weeks ! Bought 2 Cages. They are standing up well - No damage and work like a charm. I live in a large subdivision near river wetlands and not far from farmland, so raccoons are a perennial problem but really bad this year. Got into my attic to nest and did a lot of damage ( ripped up the ridge venting to gain access).
Review RateBest traps
I have one of your traps that is 20 plus years old and working fine. I bought another brand from a local hardware to help with the large number of raccoons and it was hard to set, hard to trip and I gave it away and bought a new one from you that caught a coon the first day.
Review RateGreat traps !
Bought two of these traps and have caught 3 raccoons in them. I am very satisfied. They were baited with large marshmallows; 4-5 at the back of the cage and one at the entrance midway between the door and trigger plate. Raccoons love marshmallows! They love sugar and they also look like "eggs" to them which is also a favourite food.
Review RateGreat product quality
I bought this trap a few weeks ago to catch a groundhog. It was delivered within a couple days. I setup the trap about 15 feet from where the groundhog lives and I was able to catch him the next day, Took him about 10 Km away and was easy to release.
Review RateRaccoon escapes trap in 16 minutes!
After a raccoon killed 7 of our 12 pet box turtles, we finally caught him in your large one door trap: however, according to our game camera, he was able to escape in 16 minutes. I could not tell from the photos just how he escaped, but he left blood on the back (inside) of the door and a quarter-sized spot on the ground. Do you know how he might have done this? I found the outer-part of the door (the lock?) lying flat on the ground extending out from the trap, allowing the door to be pushed open from the inside.Response From WoodstreambrandsJennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNot happy with quality of trap
I wish this trap was painted green. It is too conspicuous when placed in the grass. It is also too hard to spring because of bare metal.Response From WoodstreambrandsJennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGood product. I would recommend it.
Excellent piece of equipment. Well made, yet inexpensive. It is easy to bait and set. I have caught several opossums, which is a good thing, but have not yet gotten the coons I am after. They are the critters that drag bags of garbage out the road pick up containers and scatter it all over the surrounding area. They apparently are very smart and it may take a while. I have tried both sweets and meat baits. I have not given up.
