Havahart #1079 - Raccoon Trap

Walt Cline - Pest Control Professional Pro Tip: "When setting the trap, test the trigger to see how sensitive you can set it. This setting can be adjusted to set for different animals. Put a Stick across the entrance so the animal steps across it and not on the cage frame. Use metal stakes like tent stakes to stake the trap to the ground so the animal can not flip over and escape. I like using a minimum of two Traps set back to back from each other. Animals want to be in groups of two or more. Put bait on the ground in front of the trap but not too close to the door so it doesn't get jarred. Place bait in the back of the trap, so the animal has to reach and grab the bait, so they step on the trigger to close the door. Push the trap back and forth on the ground, working the bottom of the trap into the earth accomplishes a natural setting. If the traps are placed near their dens or paths, it is best to disguise the live traps with branches, twigs, leaves, other natural features. Putting leaves and straw on the bottom floor like the surrounding area helps keep them from being trap shy. Clean the trap a little as possible to preserve the animal smell. In Residential Settings : Use WCS TreeBerry Racoon & Skunk Paste Bait, Marsh Mellows, Grape powder, and Peanut Butter to reduce catching cats' risk. "

Money well spent.
Within an hour of setting the trap up, we fought a huge raccoon. After "resettlement" we set it up again and caught another one until the whole family was resettled. Hope they had a enjoyable reunion. This trap is easy to use and does the job as advertised. Money well spent.

Did the job
I purchased this trap for groundhogs close to a dwelling. It worked like a charm. Highly recommended!

worked great
Caught the groundhog and released it with no problem. Be sure to read the directions. On release, I used a dowel stick to prop the door open. This step is shown on the instructions.
