Easy to bait, set and release, this high tensile wire mesh trap is steel reinforced for long life and maximum resistance to damage. The smooth inside edges are for the protection of the animal, while the spring-loaded door has sensitive triggers to ensure a quick, secure catch. This model comes fully assembled and is 32x10x12.
When you receive the trap it will be bright and new. Therefore do not be discouraged in case you do not catch what you anticipated the first night or day. The effectiveness of Havahart® traps usually improves with age. Some animals do not mind a new trap while others do. So instead of setting the trap to catch the first animal to come along, bait the trap, or simply place it where you intend to set it and fasten the doors open by means of a stick or wire.
Here are few good bait suggestions for raccoons:
- Fish, fresh or canned
- Honey or sugar covered vegetables
- Smoked fish
- Sweet corn
- Cooked fatty meat
- Crisp bacon
- Marshmallow is a favorite!
