Essential Info

Between the potential for rabies and the foul odor from sprays, skunks are one of the least desired forms of wildlife you’d want on your property. Skunks can take up residence under porches, crawl spaces, or even attics, creating property damage, producing smells, and even spraying your pets. With this electronic trap, you’ll not only rid your home of the unwanted animal but do so humanely so you can maintain a clean conscience.

The trap uses an infrared sensor to trigger the gate door release and keep the unwanted critter from escaping. Once the skunk has been trapped inside, the trap’s compact design greatly restricts movement. Because the skunk won’t have much room, it can’t raise its tail and hind quarters so you can’t get sprayed. The smooth interior of the trap remains dark to keep the skunk calm while you transport it to another location. When you are ready to release your captive, simply rotate the release level and to let the skunk out into its new home. Rugged, polyethylene construction remains durable throughout various outdoor conditions. This electronic trap can single-handedly keep your home skunk-free for years and years to come. While designed specifically for skunks, this trap can also be used for rodents, possums, feral cats, and other wildlife. The trap requires the use of four AA batteries, sold separately.

    Purchased this item several weeks ago. I have since trapped my first skunk that I believe had sprayed my dog and was terrorizing the neighborhood!Thank you for a great product!

    This product is completely unreliable and I will be returning it back to the manufacturer. The electronics operating the gate closure mechanism are eratic and undependable, rendering the trap useless for its intended purpose. Anyone purchasing this device is wasting their time and money.

    When I first tried it, the trap would not close all the way because it was hanging up on the trigger. I bent it back a little so it could close. Second, whenever I set the trap and it got a little moisture from the dew it would not work for days. I would bring it in the house and it would eventually work when it dried out. As soon I would set the trap outside, it would not work anymore. Many times now the Bait would be gone but the door would not close. I really like this trap, the way the door opens for release. I like that the animal is in the dark and kept calm until released. I just wish there were better electronics or a mechanical version where there are no Electronics. It doesn't work when its a little damp.

    Bought two, one came DOA and the other stopped working. Now the replacement of the first is not working. Going to return both and look for a trap that actually works.

    SmartHome delivered as promised, the only problem was amazon failed to notify me when it shipped. Thus, a hate mail...of which I appologized to smarthome for my thinking it didn't ship when promised. Smarthome was very responsible in shipping product.
