If you need to get rid of skunks in your yard or at your place of business we have a selection of skunk traps that will make the job easy. Skunk traps come in either front or rear release and can be used to capture other animals of similar size. Our traps are built to last and come from established manufacturers that specialize in humane, live animal catch and release products.

When trapping skunks in particular, we highly recommend purchasing a trap cover. Trap covers eliminate sight lines keeping the animal calm which makes the job of trapping skunks much less unpleasant. Trap covers provide plenty of ventilation and keep animals out of the weather. Trap covers are green to blend into the environment and help keep curious passers-by from disturbing captured animals. Trapping skunks has never been easier with these quality skunk traps from Jarrod's.

Beginner Tips:

The most important tip is to read the instructions. Any questions you may have on your traps operation will be found there.

Make sure you are familiar with the way the trap springs. Try it several times before you set it out in the field. Use a stick to test all areas of the trigger plate for consistent operation.

Never smear or place bait on trigger/bait tray. You want the animal to focus on the back of the trap so it passes over and activates the trigger tray increasing the chances of a secure capture.

The trap come out of the box in pristine condition. To give it a "conditioned" look that reduces the shine, try wetting the cage and rubbing or throwing dirt on it. You can also spray paint the mesh with natural green, brown or black flat paint. Leave outdoors for several days to allow paint odor to dissipate before use.

You will not find this trap for less anywhere else on the internet.

Safeguard 53000

For Use With: Large Raccoons, Woodchucks (Groundhogs), Fox, Opossum, Feral Cats and similarly sized nuisance animals

Developed for the wildlife professional, The Universal Trap from Safeguard is a high quality live trap featuring steel rod reinforcement and heavy gauge Galfan wire that offers superior corrosion resistance and is designed to last 3 times longer than ordinary galvanized wire.  It is universal due to the fact that it has heavy duty sliding doors that open on both ends making it a trap that is not limited to just one kind of set.  It has has an easy release mechanism and hand guard carrying handles that are well up and out of the way of aggressive, trapped animals. The Safeguard Universal Live Trap is "zero clearance" and can be butted up right next to buildings, walls or trees where burrows are frequently found.

The nosecone allows this trap to be dug in right into the burrows of skunks, armadillos or woodchucks making the animal go up into the trap. Because it targets an animal in a burrow there is no chance of catching anything but that animal.  This is referred to a 100% positive capture.  After capture, use the rear sliding door to release the animal unharmed.

When using this trap to funnel out raccoons from an attic, make sure you put something down between the roof and the trap.  An angry raccoon that has been trapped all night has nothing to do but destroy anything it can to get out and if not properly protected, your roof with be torn up.  A piece of old plywood or sheet metal placed under the trap will keep those claws from doing any damage.

Trapping skunks has now become easier than ever. This Havahart East Set trap is designed to be set with just one hand!  Great for beginners! Just pull back the lever and the door lifts up and locks into place. Animals that go into the trap simply step on the trigger plate and the door quickly closes and locks securely behind them. 

The door is made of solid, reinforced, galvanized steel. A sold metal hand guard protects the user from any animals in the trap. The carry handle is rigid plastic and ergonomically designed making carrying the trap away from your body easier. The galvanized wire mesh is high tensile which makes the trap more durable without making it heavier. Mesh measures 1" x 1" and is smoothed on the inside to prevent injury to trapped animals.

When you are ready to release, stand at the rear of the trap and use the patented safe release lever located on top.


SKUNK TIP: When walking up to a captured skunk keep your voice low and soft to keep it calm. Hold a tarp or blanket in front of your feet as you approach so as not to startle it. A startled skunk is more likely to spray. Cover the cage with the blanket and grasp the handle through the blanket to pick up. Do not shake cage while transporting. To protect carpeting and upholstery in vehicle, place cage in a box that will cover approximately one third of the cage bottom. When releasing, stand to the rear, pull blanket or tarp back slowly exposing the front of the trap and pull release lever. The skunk may take a few moments to realize it can leave so stand clear until it has left the area.

"I bought this trap about a week ago from from my local gardening store. I set it out the next morning and within about 3 hours a squirrel had wondered into the trap. I happened to be on my porch to watch it get caught. It shut quick and locked down. I later released the squirrel in my neighbors yard and all was well. Thank you havahart!"--Reviewer: Abe

TIP: Never put or smear bait on trigger/bait tray. The animal needs to get to the back of the trap and pass over the plate to activate the door and ensure safe capture.

Placing bait in center minimizes risk of bait being stolen from outside of trap.
