THIS MODEL DEPENDS ON ALIGNING TWO ROUND 1/8" RODS WHETHER AGAINST EACH OTHER OR END TO END, SEPARATING AND RELEASING THE DOOR. PROBLEM: ANY MOVEMENT OR VIBRATION CAUSES THE RODS TO SLIP AND DROP THE DOOR. ALSO THE DOOR DOES NOT WEIGH ENOUGH OR COME DOWN HARD ENOUGH FOR THE SPRING LOADED LATCH TO ENGAGE THEREBY LOCKING THE DOOR.
A MUCH MORE LIKELY SITUATION IS THE ANMAL SMELLING THE BAIT, NUDGES THE SIDE OF THE CAGE AND THE DOOR DROPS, FOLLOWED BY THE ANIMAL GETTING FRUSTRATED AND RATTLING THE CAGE, BUT INHUMANELY NEVER ABLE TO EVEN GET THE BAIT. THE COMPANY REP. HERSELF SAID "A DIFFERENT DESIGN (MODEL 1077) IS AVAILABLE FOR ONLY ABOUT $2.00 MORE. GO FOR THE BETTER TRAP!

Catches Chipmunks

By Andy Z

from Upstate NY

Comments about WOODSTREAM Havahart Cage Trap:

I bought this for all out war on chipmunks! They have dug up too many flowers and bulbs, and leave holes all over the place. I thought I had only two or three, but have caught 5 in a few days. So, if you think you only got a couple chipmunks, think again. The trap only had a problem with the bait tray...it is too stiff and a couple times I saw the bait gone and the trap didn't trigger...to remedy that, I set the bar and tray so that only a nudge or sneeze would set it off...and a few drops of WD40. One more thing that a couple people mentioned, I have an older two door Havahart, and the chipmunks can squeeze their way out...the door has too large a gap in it, but this one works good.

A little finicky - great, once you get it right!

By smit

from PA, United States

Comments about WOODSTREAM Havahart Cage Trap:

This trap really works well once you get your's set just right. I had some problems with 'baiting' the trap and getting the trigger arm and door release arm set just right. As other posts mention, you need to do a little bit of bending of the arms just to make sure they are interfacing correctly. I have found that it works best to just put the bait directly on the trigger plate. I was using a small piece of cardboard at first, but this was sometimes sliding off the trigger plate, and squirrels were actually taking the cardboard and bait out of the trap! Peanut butter put directly on the trigger plate is working great!

Comments about WOODSTREAM Havahart Cage Trap:

I don't know why they don't call this one "easy set", it's so simple to use. I bought it for Rats but haven't caught any yet. I have caught 5 squirrels, and they have all been relocated.

excellent trap - very well designed

By Dave H

from Vestal, NY, United States

Comments about WOODSTREAM Havahart Cage Trap:

I bought 5 of these to combat a serious chipmunk (and squirrel) problem. I've had them out for 3 days now and have caught 5 critters each day. They are much better than the double gate traps that I have been using!!!! The animal can bang against the gate forever and it won't bounce up and let it out!! The gate can be totally (and easily) removed for baiting. I've used peanut butter. (Put it on the BACK of the bait platform. I observed a chipmunk just standing there and eating peanut butter.) NOTE: the animal has to turn around to get out; can't make it before the gate has slammed shut.

Excellent Traps

By Scott K

from Bella Vista, AR, United States

Comments about WOODSTREAM Havahart Cage Trap:

I bought several of these for chipmunks and squirrels that wreak havoc on my tomato garden. So far I've caught 8 chipmunks and 3 squirrels. They do thrash around in the trap, but they do hold up. I'm a believer!!!

Out of the box and trapping!!!!!!

By trapperjohn

from South Jersey

Comments about WOODSTREAM Havahart Cage Trap:

I have had these traps for years, I tried different brands but none can compare to these, I have had to tweak some damage to them by varmint but they still come back strong, wd 40, clean door and good bait. They last a long time and a lot of abuse from larger animals and the ones that just want to beat it up. They atch squirrels with ease if kept well and clean. Just replaced two very old beat traps with two brand new ones, had 4 squirrels in 2 days. Barely trying.

A SURE THING SINCE I WAS A KID!

By Bob L

from Tucson, AZ

Comments about WOODSTREAM Havahart Cage Trap:

Here in Arizona, pack rats are trouble. One nested on our back patio, and chewed through an extension cord, blowing a fuse. Ordered a Havahart trap, similar to the one I used as a kid to get squirrels out of the attic! Two days, we had our rat. Released him unharmed some miles away, next to a cemetery.

Easy-to-use and Highly Effective Trap

By Mark Heidema

from Holland, MI

Comments about WOODSTREAM Havahart Cage Trap:

The Havahart, X-Small 1-Door Trap was very easy to use and highly effective in trapping Chipmunks on our property. The Trap Plate is very sensitive to detect them and the door comes down quickly. I highly recommend this inexpensive but effective trap to anyone with Chipmunk issues.

Terrific trap

By Billyjo

from Clarkston,mi

Comments about WOODSTREAM Havahart Cage Trap:

Bought two of these traps and they keep me busy emptying them. I am definitely making a dent in the chipmunk population around the house. These traps are easy to load and set. And easy to unload. They work.

Met my epectations

By Jim 38

from Indianapolis, IN, United States

Comments about WOODSTREAM Havahart Cage Trap:

I have a Havahart squirrel trap with which I have trapped over 65 squirrels and a few possums. I also have some chipmunks.They were not heavy enough to spring the trap and would eat the bait in the squirrel trap. I ordered the small 1-door trap. It was delivered quickly. I caught a chipmunk the second day that I had it.

Unbelievable

By Dennis

from Reedsburg, WI, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about WOODSTREAM Havahart Cage Trap:

The wife was cursing the chipmunks digging holes in her flower garden and the yard. In a matter of 30 hrs time we caught 5 chipmunks using Peanutbutter on the back edge of the trigger tray. It guarantees they step on the tray to trip the door. All chipmunks were released in the same location 3 miles away in a country wooded area to keep the family together at there new home.

Got one a year ago and have caught over 50 squirrels and several chipmunks. All have been relocated. It's easy to use and my deck is in much better shape now since the squirrels are under control. I recommend to anyone who has a rodent problem.

Not what they use to be.

By Mr Pack Rat

from Tucson AZ

Comments about WOODSTREAM Havahart Cage Trap:

I have business where I have used these traps for the last 15 years. I have over 100 of them. They are a good and easy to use trap, but are not as good as they use to be. These traps use to be made in the USA and had better overall quality then. Now they are made in China. The handles often bind and get stuck. The spring steel clip on the door breaks more easily and the overall fit and finish is not as good as it was.

      It only one night/time to catch Rosie. I loaded the trap with fresh fruits, veggies, nuts and peanut butter. I also place a small towel inside so Rosie, my hamster, would walk on that and not the metal. I am so happy it worked! I didn't want to have to tell my 24 students that I lost the classroom pet.

        I have actually used this for over ten years. I have a piece of small wire in the back of the
        trap, and i pierce a one inch piece of hot dog, and loop the end to the cage. When the pack rat is working on the hot dog, door falls. I am going to leave it set in my attic. Twice with a pack rat up there. Both caught. Now i need another for the yard. We live in the desert. Trap never fails us.

            I HAD a small Southern Flying Squirrel in my attic for about 2 weeks while I tried to out smart him/her. I bought this for a total of [$] and had caught and released him within 4hours. It's a simple trap, but very efficiant. Read an earlier post and not sure how the guy got/almost got bitten. If you carry it properly it's fine. I did use/recommend work gloves, but again, he never came close to my hand. Lastly, I'm not crazy about the price. $20 is plenty for this trap, however, I'm in an older house so I suspect it will be used again. Very positive experience.
