Expert-Tested Technology

Trapping nuisance animals has never been easier! Patented Easy Set® technology allows you to set your trap with one pull of a lever. Expert-tested and proven effective, Havahart® Easy Set® traps are the most robust traps on the market, contructed with rust-resistant galvanized steel and strudy hardware, making the handling experience safe and comfortable.

Easy to Set & Release

Simply bait the trap and then pull back the Easy Set® lever to set it with a single hand. The trip plate's sensitivity targets the animal's specific size and weight, while a solid spring-loaded door ensures a quick and secure capture. To release, just stand to the rear of the cage and pull back the Easy Set® lever. It's that easy - no more destructive digging, and no more tipped trash cans!

Safe for You and the Animal

Inside the cage, smooth, rounded edges and a strudy door lock keep the animal safely inside, while a solid hand guard limits contact with the carrier. And a rigid carry handle makes it easy to carry even large animals at a safe distance.

It simply does not work! By dan

This trap is a joke! I've seen on my Nest Cam Outdoor in at least 5 instances as the rabbit came in, ate the apple and just got out without the trap going off. Ridiculous!....I wish to return it!

Response From Woodstreambrands
Susan : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Dan,

If rabbits are taking the bait without triggering the door, we recommend adding some weight to the trigger plate.  This can often be done with some small washers or pebbles.

Please keep in mind that the trap is covered by a 30 day return policy.  Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for additional assistance.

The Havahart Small Trap works wonders for us. By Lebodude

The small Havahart Trap has enabled me to capture and relocate 18 squirrels that were emptying the bird feeders in our backyard. This is an excellent product, is very easy to set, and it arrived very quickly. I've told many of our friends about our success. Cracked pecans and whole unsalted peanuts in the shell seem to be the bait combination that works best for us.

Perfect size trap, worked first night I had it out By bart99

Perfect trap for my needs. I had 1 squirrel that had eaten through the soffit and was romping around in my attic space. Placed the trap on top of the a/c unit outside, where I believe that they he was jumping up on to get to the pipes that led into the attic, and, 1 day later, I had him. Gave him a nice ride down the road about 10 miles and let him loose on a nice spread of land with a small lake. Only cost me 1 peanut butter cracker to get the job done. Now, I will tell you that Mr. Squirrel probably would not rate your product as a 5 star item. He seemed quite irritated when I walked up on him and he ran like the wind when I opened the cage. He didn't even bother to look back and wave bye. Oh well, I know I am happier without him around and I hope life out deep in the country is fitting his lifestyle well.

Easy to set. By HARLEY

I have both the long and short trap. The short one is so easy to set and easy to release the animal.

Havahart Trap 1083 By Mousielove

Very easy to set. I had a suggestion from a family member to catch squirrels. Place peanut buttered bread behind the flap and ON the flap with some nuts leading back to the flap. I also put aluminum foil across the back end so that they can't get their paws into it to move the nuts. This has finally worked. I'm convinced that peanut buttered white bread is "crack" for squirrels. They can't resist it and I've relocated 4 out of 7 squirrels so far. I'm thrilled with this purchase. Thanks, Havahart!

Q.How effective are these live traps to catch a weasel??

This trap is designed to catch weasels and other similarly sized animals such as rabbits, skunks, and squirrels.

Q.Is this trap big enough for cats

This trap is designed to be used for smaller animals. For cats, we recommend a larger trap such as the one found at the web address below. http://www.woodstreambrands.ca/large-1-door-animal-trap-1079
