Best-Selling Medium 2-Door Animal Trap
Havahart® Medium 2-Door Traps have been designed with the safety of the small animals in mind. These rabbit traps, with two spring loaded doors, have many features to allow safe, quick and easy catches. Havahart® Medium 2-Door Traps are constructed of sturdy rust-resistant wire mesh with steel reinforcements for long life and galvanized for maximum resistance to rust and corrosion. Mesh openings are smaller than competing traps of comparable size to prevent escapes and stolen bait. Two spring-loaded doors allow animals to enter from either direction. Sensitive triggers ensure quick, secure captures that target the specific animal's size, eliminating undesired catches. Solid doors and handle guards protect users during transportation, while smoothed internal edges protect and prevent injuries to animals. These rabbit traps are made in the U.S.A.

Review Rate1030 not so good 1078 Great!
I bought this last week to get a squirrel out of my chimney flue. The design as others have commented did NOT work using the two doors. Went to using one door and still not successful. Trap needed to be longer and have a better quicker action , After a few days and several failures, I borrowed my neighbors Model 1078! Within two hours, Mr Squirrel was captured! The spring action on the single door Model 1078 is great! I rate that Model with FIVE STARS! I will look for that Model next time I buy and won’t settle for anything else!Response From WoodstreambrandsPatty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry about this experience, but glad the other model was successful. A number of our traps are recommended for squirrels as there are a variety of species and sizes of squirrels.

Review RateCould use stronger/thicker metal
Like the size, and the extra hook on the door for the latch to stay down is nice when an animal flips the trap over. However I see a problem with the top metal square where the handle is attached, very positive any animal will be able to bend the flimsy metal and get out. Had a squirrel in this trap for only an hour or two and the metal was already bent.Response From WoodstreambrandsPatty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateA 6 in. longer trap is the answer for catching squirrels
After using the 1030-B trap for a year now I've found that a few modifications were needed to assure success. First; I found that using it as a 2 door trap did not work. The squirrels were too fast and the doors too close so they were able to propel themselves out when the trap sprung. What I have done is locked the one door down and put a bait holding tray beyond the trigger lever so that the squirrel has to commit a greater part of it's body within the trap. Of course a trap that was 6 inches longer would be the answer.
Review RateLooking for a longer trap
I don't want to "settle" for this model, which according to multiple comments, is just too short. What I want is the model 1040, but I can't seem to find them anywhere. What gives?Response From WoodstreambrandsJennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
What type of animal is being trapped? This trap is recommended for Rabbits, Skunks and Squirrels. We apologize as the Model 1040 trap is obsolete. For additional assistance, please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242).
Review RateA little bit disappointed/frustated
I agree with SRP man - your trap should be longer - the squirrel escapes faster than the door closes. If the trap was about 4 to 6 inches longer, then the animal would not have the opportunity to exit. Have only had a 30% success rate - eastern gray squirrels are relatively large for their species, and they are clever. Using only one door does help - a little bit - as you suggested.Response From WoodstreambrandsPatty : Consumer Relations Representative

Amazing! Caught 3 squirrels within hours. Highly recommend this product
Review Rategreat for squirrels!Arrived really quick. Set it out for a family of pesky squirrels and captured the entire family, all seven of them! Easy to set up and as easy to release the varmit later. Great design!!
Review Rate1030B trap too short for squirrels
I've been setting the 1030B trap for squirrels for a while now and have found it to have less than a 50% success rate due to the fast reflexes of the squirrels and the short length of the trap. The wise squirrels will stretch out with the rear claws at the edge of the trap opening to reach the bait and when the trap door begins to fall; the squirrels are fast enough to escape the falling door. As far as squirrels are concerned; the trap needs to be 6 inches longer so that the squirrel is totally inside before the door falls.Response From WoodstreambrandsTara : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, we apologize for this experience. We recommend using the trap with only one door open. Place the bait towards the closed door where there squirrel cannot reach in and get it. The squirrel will need to go all the way in the trap to get the bait. The bait can also be hung from the top of the trap to make getting the bait more difficult.

Review RateThey work!I bought a small and medium trap cage for squirrels. The small one did capture a
squirrel, but I would recommend buying the medium size for adult squirrels. The locking mechanism design requires attention when moving a captured squirrel as it can easily open (and did) before you're ready to release. Other than that, I am happy with the overall design and will buy more medium size cages in the future.
