Review RateWorking on several options
I have a couple of small rabbits that I need to relocate. Set the trap in there favorite location and put a couple of corrots available for the. Did not set the trap but kept the door open with a stick. Took two days before the food dissappeared. Did the same thing again and the food was gone in 12 hours. St Set the trap and put the carrots about an inch from the back. The trap was open and food gone so I am assuming the plate is not sensitive enough. Read some of the suggestions in the reviews so I will try placing a washer or 2 on the plate, string the carrots, tie the string to the roof of the trap let them dangle an inch or two below the roof. Make it difficult for the rabbit to get the food so it will move around as much as possible. I will trap them and have several more options. Some of the reviewers give up to easily. Be Patient.
I bought this Havahart medium one door trap from DYI in California. I had a few ground squirrels visiting the property and raiding the bird feeders. that was March 2017. it is now July 2018. I have now caught 111 ground squirrelsand 14 rats in that same trap using nothing but Wagners Western Mix Bird Seed; I kid you not. All of those squirrels have been relocated and released. I read a few reviews and I do not know what theses dissatisfied people are talking about. The trap I bought came fully assembled and has never failed to work properly. I would advise anyone to set the trip hook at the bare minimum to hold the door open. That way it is a quick trip with even light pressure on the trip plate. The door or the cage has never failed to hold the animals. Those are the facts. FYI, this is the first review I have ever written for a product, but this one deserves honorable mention for its performance.
Review Rategood choice
Already on duty and doing its job...relocating a family of Chipmunks from the garage to a local woodlot. Job well done and the kids love releasing the cute little invaders
Review RateWorks great!
Works great! Caught a pesky gray squirrel the first day. Great video information on the website and how to bait. Thanks!
Review Ratedidn't work
Didn't work. Possum went in, ate the food, door didn't shut. I bought this product after I had bought a 745. The animal was trapped but broke out. Still looking for a trap that works.Response From WoodstreambrandsJennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateTrap works well but needs a more robust trigger platform
The trap arrived in perfect shape and on time. I bought the trap for a raccoon. Due to the presence of several neighborhood cats, I had to experiment a little with baits. I caught several cats and released them unharmed but thoroughly miffed at the experience. Switched to marshmallows and quickly caught the raccoon. He was in the trap for overnight and succeeded in digging a trench about 4 inches wide and 3 inches deep on both sides of the trap. I successfully transported and released him (legal in Louisiana). The trigger platform was bent and deformed by the raccoon and I had to reshape it before it could be reset.
Review RatePoor design
Do not purchase this trap. It is poorly designed and your critters will escape. I have video evidence of a nice possum getting out of my trap. The door is able to be pushed up allowing the animal to get free. I will just spend the extra money the next time on a better trap. Putting the trap together is easy and not difficult at all. However, I am trying to re-enforce my trap with extra links to secure it and a new fabrication of the door so it is not so easy to push back up. This is a pain and not worth the money I spent on the trap.Response From WoodstreambrandsJennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratepiece of crap
Terrible design on the door spring. The spring collapsed on the first set and the animal escaped. Very poor quality.Response From WoodstreambrandsJennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

bought two to remedy a rabbit problem in my yard. The squirrels love this because the trap set is so stiff, that the squirrels can't set it off when the get the lettuce I leave for the rabbits. Taking them back to the store.Response From WoodstreambrandsJennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. To increase the sensitivity of the trap, we recommend adding something small to the trigger plate such as a pebble or washer. Also, tying the bait from the roof of the trap works well to ensure the rabbit has to maneuver on the trigger plate, increasing the chances of a catch.
