This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in May of 2019. Removing nuisance creatures from around your home or farm is not for the faint of heart. They will defend themselves fiercely and can transmit diseases, so you must guard against bites and scratches. You should also understand the laws about animal trapping in your location. When ready to make a purchase, consider our selection of raccoon traps, which were chosen for effectiveness and value. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best raccoon trap on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

May 08, 2019:

One of the most popular brands in this area is Havahart, which has earned a reputation for the variety of its offerings as well as their effectiveness, durability, and value. Our selections reflect this market preference, with Havahart models landing two of our top three spots. We were especially impressed with the timed-release mechanism on the Havahart 998--a feature which will help keep you safe from ornery animals when you let them go. Honorable mention goes to the Tomahawk Original which, though more expensive than other options in our list, is so durable that some folks won't mind paying the extra cost.

An avid reader and outdoors enthusiast, Joe earned his doctorate in literary studies before making the lateral leap from academia to technical writing. He now lives and works in the inter-mountain West where he creates technical and marketing content, including white papers, solution briefs, and courseware for some of the world’s largest information technology companies. With more than 14 years of experience in the field, he has learned more than he ever thought he would know about such enterprise IT topics as cloud computing, storage, databases, business software, and networking. When he’s not writing about business computing, he can be found outdoors, probably hiking with his family and dog.
