Product Overview

Ideal for raccoons, stray cats, groundhogs (woodchucks), opossums, armadillos and similar-sized animals.

Havahart Easy Set raccoon traps are the new standard in live animal traps. This patent pending design is easy to set and easy to release. This live trap is perfect for first time trappers: one simple move and the trap is set!

Havahart Easy Set 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, smaller than competing traps of comparable size, 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 raccoon traps have been field tested. Made in the U.S.A.

    Havahart Trap

    By Dennis on 10/21/2010

    Verified Purchase

    The Havahart 1085 is the only single door trap I've had any luck with trapping wild cats. You must also use a human scent remover so the cat won't shy away from the opening. Make the trap as natural as possible with brush, limbs or any other natural material. I bait with either sardines in oil or tunafish in oil-both work great!

    Effective trap

    By Nic on 01/05/2012

    Verified Purchase

    The trap worked well, as I caught my nuisance animal. I wish it had a "back door" to the cage making it easier to set bait. Overall effective and well built trap.

    It just works

    By Tony on 04/06/2012

    Verified Purchase

    This trap is rugged. After trapping two armadillos and a huge raccoon the trap shows no sign of abuse or wear. I thought the raccoon would have wreaked havoc on the trap but, no. Super easy to use. Just bait it and forget it.

    Worthless for adult racoons

    By Andy on 01/09/2015

    In Anaheim Ca we are being over run by rac coons. They love the dry cat food. Three juvenile ones sat on my patio table and casually munched on my cats food. They stared right at me until I got real close. The cats are afraid of them. So I set the trap and apparently caught ma or pa. They bent the door lock up real good and ate the food. So much for the 1085. They sent me a new door lock and spring.

    easy set not so easy release

    By Tony on 08/16/2017

    trap is definitely easy to set. but when youre trying to release a skunk sitting on the trip plate the door wont stay open. You've either got to stand there holding the handle in the set position or put a rock on it to hold it down while a loaded skunk takes its sweet time leaving.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Need to get rid of opossums that have made my basement and backyard home. Dogs keep killing them.

Any suggestions?

A
The most common way to get rid of opossums is by trapping them.  There is nothing else really labeled for opossums other than trapping them.  The trap that is made for that sized animal is the Havahart 1085 Trap.

Q
Are opossums included in the rat family?

I need to kill opossums chipmunks and moles. Is there a product that will cover all three.

A

Despite its appearance, the opossum is not related to the rat. In fact, the opossum is a marsupial, or “pouched” mammal, and is therefore related to other marsupials such as the kangaroo and the koala. The most common way to get rid of opossums is to trap them. There is not a poison labled to kill them. The trap that is made for that sized animal is the Havahart 1085 Trap. Please see our Opossum Control/Trapping/Removal Guide.

There are also no poisons on the market to kill chipmunks, we recommend trapping them as well. Another option would be gassing chipmunk burrows and this can be done with Giant Destroyers. Please see our Chipmunk Control Guide

There are many different ways to treat for moles. One of the most effective means of mole control is using Talpirid Bait. One Talprid Mole Bait worm contains a lethal dose and can kill in 24 hours. Please take a look at our Mole Control Page.

Q
How do you adjust the tension in the Havahart East Set Trap - Model 1085?
A

There is a sensitivity screw on the Havahart Easy Set Trap – Model 1085 so that you adjust how easily the door is tripped. This is helpful when trapping animals of different sizes.
