Moles & Gophers: Repellents or Poisons?
Mole & Gophers: Choosing Your Path to Lawn Perfection
When you’ve got moles or gophers tearing up your lawn, there are two paths you can take to get rid of them. You can kill the varmints with traps and poisons. Or you can repel them!
For those who choose to go the repellent route, Sweeney’s® makes it easy with a wide selection of humane, effective granular and liquid repellents and sonic spike repellers. All are easy- to-use, chemical-free solutions that are safe to use around children and pets.
But which path to choose? Here’s an easy-to-understand road map to help steer you in the right direction!
Sonic Spike™ Repellers
Safely repelling burrowing animals using sonic technology is as simple as placing a stake in the ground. When a Sonic Spike is inserted into the ground and activated, sonic pulses emit a sound which is highly irritating to moles and gophers and sends them packing. Because moles are virtually blind, they are extremely sensitive to both sound and vibrations.
Sweeney’s makes it even easier to repel moles and gophers with their Solar Powered Sonic Spike and Solar Sonic Spike™ PRO. When fully powered by the sun, these maintenance-free spikes provide days of uninterrupted power. Even in inclement weather, you can rest easy knowing the solar powered spikes are still hard at work repelling underground varmints from your yard.
Granular & Liquid Repellents
Sweeney’s line of granular and liquid repellents wards off burrowing animals by creating an inhospitable environment. Sweeney’s dual-action Mole and Gopher Granular Repellent works to repel pests by offending their sense of taste and smell. This all-natural repellent with castor oil not only repels moles and gophers, it also gives voles, armadillos and other burrowing animals the boot.
Sweeney’s Mole & Gopher Repellent Yard Spray also uses castor oil to repel unwanted pests. Easy-to-use, just attach a garden hose tightly to the self-dispensing container, turn the water on to full pressure, and spray the poison-free repellent over areas infested with moles and gophers.
So, which way will you go?
Will you use Sonic Spikes to give those burrowing animals “bad vibrations?” Or will you use Granular Repellents to put a bad taste in their mouths?
