Best-Selling Small 1-Door Animal Trap

Havahart® Small 1-Door Traps, designed and used by professional trappers, have one spring loaded door for safe, secure catches. We've field tested these squirrel traps, so you know they work! Havahart® one 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 on these live traps are smaller than competing traps of comparable size to prevent escapes and stolen bait. Spring loaded doors and 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 traps are used by professional trappers and animal control officers. Made in the U.S.A.

MODEL 1077 Follow Up Review By Brickman

After a month of trapping squirrels I have found what seems to work very well in trapping them. I thought I would share what I have learned during this time period. In total I have trapped 11 squirrels. First I did fasten the trap to the ground by extending 10 inch metal rods through the trap side into the ground in four locations. Next I really baited the trap with black oil sunflower seeds, acorns, peanuts and hazel nuts. I strung the nuts on two thin wires above and to the rear of the trip plate. Be careful to keep them at least one inch from the top, side and rear of the trap or the squirrel will get them from outside the trap. Next I dug a trench about 1/2 inch below trap being 1 inch wide. Half of the trench was under the trip plate and half was exposed to the rear of the trip plate. I filled the trench with seeds and acorns. Lastly I placed seeds and pieces of the acorns at the entrance of the trap and in the trap. When the squirrels see those hanging peanuts and Hazel nuts they go for them in time. Be patient and soon you will be trapping squirrels. This has worked for me and now I do appreciate these traps.

Model 1077 Review By Brickman

The traps I purchased model 1077 are well built but function poorly. I observed a squirrel actually push a trap over and that did not trigger the trap release. There is so little distance behind the trigger plate that the squirrel does not need to reach it to get the bait. I buried the bait, I hung the bait inside PVC, I placed the bait under the handle. The squirrel gets the bait and leaves the trap. I watched squirrel after squirrel push the light trap off the buried bait and even dig out the buried bait from outside the trap. I have to put a brick on the trap and fasten the corners to the ground to keep it from being pushed around. Like I said the trap fails to function. I think it may be best to return the five traps I purchased. Also when unboxed the traps all of the handles were installed differently and none of them correctly. I had to reinstall all if them. This is a shame because the traps are quality built.

We apologize for this experience. When trapping a squirrel outdoors, we recommend anchoring the trap or placing a heavy object on the top to prevent animals from tipping it over and stealing the bait. To increase the sensitivity of the trap, we recommend placing a washer or pebble on the bait tray. Also, tying the bait from the roof of the trap right over the bait plate or in the far back works well to make sure the squirrel has to maneuver on the trigger plate, increasing the chances of a catch.

Model 1077 Unboxing By Brickman

I purchased five model 1077 traps which arrived all at the same time. Upon removing them from their individual boxes I noticed that the handles were all installed differently and none of them correctly. Not a single handle resembled how they appeared on the box or the accompanying instructions. Two handles were installed diagonally. Two handles were installed on the right side of the trap and one handle was installed on the left side of the trap. None of the handles would lay flush with the top of the trap on the protected area. To lay flush the handles protruded outside the top protected area. I had to remove all five handles and reinstalled them as illustrated on the box and the instructions. Now they lay flush entirely on the protected top of each trap. I also purchased in the past four of the model 1079-B trap. They work fine and are the same design as the model 1077. I expect the model 1077 to perform just as well. A word about the model 1079-B. They were the first traps I purchased from Havahart. Upon trapping one of the handles did break. That occurrence is what led me to closely examine the handles. I am very much surprised to see that, as it appears to me, that none of the five handles on the model 1077 were correctly installed.

terrible By unsatisfied

The trigger plate can support a brick! I actually did put a brick on it. The squirrel keeps taking the bait without triggering the trap. Very poor design. The trigger plate is too short. At best, the squirrel can only put its front paws on it. Since the front half of a squirrel doesn't weigh as much as a brick, it doesn't work. It might work for bigger animals, but not for squirrels.

Still no squirrels! By Angie

I bought the Havahart 1077 trap to catch grey squirrels as they are wrecking havoc in my garden! I have now set the trap as suggested using various baits including crackers with peanut butter, unshelled unsalted peanuts and shelled peanuts, without success. I have set the trap finely to make tripping it easy, on the ground and on a flat roof. I have caught four hedgehogs (or the same one four times!) and every single time the bait has been taken by 'someone' - but still no squirrels! I live in the UK. Can anyone suggest a solution?

Did not work! By Cordell

Well I bought a Havahart squirrel trap... and I set it and I caught a squirrel pretty quick... but in just a FEW MINUTES he ate all of the peanut butter (less than 1 tablespoon) and then escaped. Ha! I think they are up there in my attic waiting for me to refill their dinner plate. Do you have a different trap that is hard to escape?  You can have this one back. I think the squirrels would give your trap a 5 star review. Ha!

Hello Dennis,

We apologize for this experience and appreciate the time taken to share this valuable feedback.

When tested on its own, does the door of this trap lock?  If so, the squirrel may not have been fully inside the trap when the door closed, preventing it from locking.

Please contact our Consumer Relations Team directly at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242).  We are happy to offer troubleshooting assistance.

Not suitable for chipmunks. By Mike

If your target is chipmunks/ground squirrels, don't bother with this trap. They just aren't heavy enough to trip the trigger plate. I have managed to trap two chipmunks, but that is the result of more than a hundred baitings. They nearly always walk in, eat all of the bait, and then walk right back out. I'm guessing that the two that were successfully trapped made the mistake of doing a little celebratory dance on the trigger plate before departing. I figure my best chances will come when they've eaten enough of my peanut butter to grow to the size of a small house cat.

Response From Woodstreambrands
Susan : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Mike,

Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback, we apologize for this experience.

If the target animals such as chipmunks are able to take the bait without triggering the trap, we recommend placing some additional weight on the trigger plate.  This can be done using small pebbles or washers.  This will help ensure that even smaller animals will be able to cause the trap to trip.

We hope this information is helpful.  Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any additional questions.

Love the product By Lin in Indiana

I bought the small 1-door to use for squirrels. I baited with a seed mix (mostly black oil-sunflower). I want to rid property of black and piney squirrels only. I sometimes catch a native fox squirrel and one of the best features is being able to release it immediately. I have caught several of the pests. I recently had a problem with bluejays getting in the trap and switched to bait of whole black walnuts from our trees. I caught 2 pineys this way. This trap has a good set/catch mechanism to catch the difficult to catch piney squirrels. I also unintentionally caught 2 opposums in this trap at night. Thank you for a reliable product!

Havalaugh By ernesto

bought this (#1077) trap a month ago and every animal is laughing at it . If they are not going into it for a free meal they are tossing it all around the yard with the door not closing. I gave it one star because it gives me something to do.
