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!

It worked perfectly!

Comments about WOODSTREAM Havahart Cage Trap:

I placed the order, and the trap arrived a few days later. I baited it with Nutella on bread, as I had a squirrel in my attic. A few days later, I heard rattling in the trap, and sure enough, the squirrel couldn't resist the Nutella! I drove him to a park (far enough that he wasn't going to find his way back to my house) and released him. Thanks! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Top Quality

By Eaglebob

Comments about WOODSTREAM Havahart Cage Trap:

Just purchased the small trap mainly for Chipmunks but as soon as it arrived I have yet to see a chipmunk around. They seem to know what is in store for them. Even though I haven't caught one yet I will say that the trap is built top quality. It's strong, well formed craftsmanship and it will last many seasons. I spent over 40 years in metal fabrication and was really impressed with the design and build of the unit. Great unit! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Bought the trap, as the chipmunk population was extremely high this year. Followed the online instructions for baiting and placement. Within one week, the chipmunks were removed to a far away place. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have used this trap since I received it & in the last week alone I have caught 15 Chipmunks, where do they all come from? Great product, only problem is that the little handle on the trap door is starting to rust already [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Catches Chipmunks

By Andy Z

from Upstate NY

Verified Buyer

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

Verified Buyer

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! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

excellent trap - very well designed

By Dave H

from Vestal, NY, United States

Verified Buyer

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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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

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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
