Step-by-Step Trapping Guide
Step 1: Place bait in back of trap
Armadillos: Meal worms, sardines.
Groundhogs: Cantaloupe, sweet corn, lettuce.
Opossums: Vegetables, sweet apples.
Stray cats: Fish, sardines, canned tuna.
Raccoons: Fish, marshmallows.
Step 2: Set the trap
Set the live animal trap in the location of the nuisance animal. You can camouflage the trap by placing twigs and leaves on top. You can also leave an unset baited trap for a few days to entice the animal.
Step 3: Check the trap regularly
Animals can become stressed if caged for long periods of time. Hot and cold weather conditions can also harm the animal.

We take care of a large feral cat that had become badly injured. This cat was entirely wild. Even though we had been feeding him for eight months, he still ran and hid behind the shrubs every time we went outside. We wanted to take him to the vet, but knew we could not just go outside and pick him up.
We ordered this trap from Amazon and got it within two days. We set it up on our back deck where the cat liked to lie and sun himself. We put a plate of tuna at the far end of the trap. We were able to watch from inside the house. Within just a few minutes, the cat came up to the trap. At first he was nervous, but he was used to us feeding him, so he thought it was safe. He walked inside tentatively, and then...SNAP! We caught him on the very first try!
We were able to take our feline friend to the vet and get him treated. We had to nurse him back to health indoors for one month. We just let him go this morning. He took off running and acted very happy to be outside and free again! Thank you, HAVAHART!
It took three nights of trial and error, but here's what we did that finally succeeded two nights in a row. We affixed the trap to a 2x12 board with a hole in it. Below the hole in the board we dug a six inch deep hole in the ground [the hole to hold the bait, either in the board/ground or at least just the board, is important; it seems like the raccoon gets a little distracted by trying to get the bait out and becomes careless of the trip plate. When we only put the bait in the back of the trap, without the hole, the clever raccoon can carefully navigate the trip plate, steal the bait, and foil the trap]. That's where we put the pb&j sandwich cut into quarters. The door by the hole in the board and ground we left shut. We put two marshmallows in the trap over the hole and affixed some mason's wire mesh onto the side of the trap so the raccoon couldn't reach in from the side. We attached the trap to the side of the barn with three wires run to nails. We used two log ollies (for assembling log houses) to anchor the trap on its board to the ground. We put one more marshmallow beneath the open door of the trap. Finally we made sure the trip mechanism was set as hair-trigger as could be.
The trap is very sturdy and stood up to a furious, panicking raccoon that was 29" long (nose to tail tip) and twenty lbs. trying to get out of it for six hours. The next night, feeling we had the culprit but wanting to be sure, just in case, we reset the whole thing only without the hole in the ground and just using marshmallows and no pbj. We caught a female this time, a few inches longer and several pounds heavier. Again, though less panicky according to the trail cam pics, she worked for hours to get out with no harm done to the trap.
Even though it took some modifications and experimentation to trap these clever raccoons, I am so glad we bought this trap and highly recommend it. Update: we ended up catching four raccoons before we felt confident enough to put the trap in storage. Plenty of peace of mind knowing it's there.
