Havahart One Door Chipmunk & Squirrel Trap #0745 Uses / Applications:
Basic Trapping Tips: Testing the trap - Following the instructions contained in the carton, you may want to test the trap and spring it a few times to make sure that it works properly. For example, spring it by touching the trip plate from each end. This should be done also after the trap has been set and camouflaged to make sure it works freely. If you feel the doors do not work fast enough, place small stones or other weights on top of the door. This will cause doors to drop faster.
Tips for New Traps - When you receive the trap it will be bright and new. Therefore, do not be discouraged if you do not catch what you anticipated the first night or day. The effectiveness of Havahart traps usually improve 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. After a couple of days, when you notice the bait has been disturbed or taken, it is time to set the trap.
Camouflaging your Trap - Camouflaging the trap is an effective means to entice the animal. Place twigs and leaves all over the trap to remove a lot of the glare from the trap. You can even spray it with water and throw dirt on it to give it a conditioned look. Animals will not be discouraged from entering the trap by the smell of your handling the trap or from supposed machine/oil odors in the manufacturing process.
