Sweeney’s® Solar Power Sonic Spikes™
Sweeney’s® Solar Powered mole and gopher repeller offers a poison-free way to drive away moles, gophers. Every 30 seconds, sonic pulses penetrate the soil, emitting a penetrating sound which is irritating to moles and gophers who are virtually blind and extremely sensitive to sound and vibrations. This method encourages moles to leave the property, and the solar operated spike continues to discourage return visits.
No batteries are required to operate the waterproof solar spike; one solar charge will last up to 5 days. The spike is built with a mow-over design and safe to use around pets. Allow 7-14 days before moles and gophers start to move away from the area.

Critters arrived about three months ago and were very quickly destroying my 1/2 acre yard. Neighbors had tried a variety of traps in their yards with little success so my offer was to try the Sonic Spike. I was somewhat hesitant. But three days after installing the two spikes my moles had all but vanished. The sound which is slightly audible must really irritate them because I found one crawling on top of the ground. Question is where do they go?

We are so glad to hear of the success you have seen with the Sonic Spikes. They are a great way to quickly eliminate moles and gophers from the yard without using traps or poisons. When they leave your yard they will look for another area to live with a viable food source, which will be abundant with insects.

Amazon ReviewNovember 16, 2013
This thing still works all year long 3 years after I put it out on my flower bed. It even survives being covered with snow for a few days.

The fact that you don't need to fuss with batteries makes this product very economical and a time saver. Although it takes 7 to 14 days to work, they will ultimately do the job moving the molls. I have used a number of different moll repellent products and this one I like the most.
Amazon ReviewOctober 30, 2013
We are very pleased. Have had a terrible problem with moles digging up the entire yard. We placed it in the center of the front yard and after about a week we didn't see any further tunnels. Will be ordering one for the back yard as well.

My first one I had several years and it finally faded out, but it did a wonderful job of getting rid of the moles. I am going to get another one for my back yard now. I would definitely recommend one to anyone who is having problems with moles.

I've been using this product in tandem with Poison Peanuts Pellets. Between them, my chipmunk problem seems to have abated.

Reviewer: James W. Leinart
I was skeptical about this product at first. I have a postage stamp size yard, 10 yards by 15 yards. I tried a professional company, $250, to poison them but it only worked a month. I tried the spike trap but could never spear any. I have not seen a mole tunnel in 3 weeks.

Reviewer: Russell G. Moore
It was a lucky strike to find this available from Amazon. I have a mole problem and it's been ongoing for some time now. I refuse to poison them or inhumanely trap them, so this product was just the thing for my problem.
It works. The moles stay away. I don't have to feel bad about killing them or setting them free elsewhere. However, I can hear the noise this thing makes. It's worth it for me because the moles are worse than the sound, but consider that when making your decision to buy.

I have used these for over a year and they seem to work. The moles were burrowing in my flower beds and ruining my flowers. I put out a couple of these solar spikes and the moles have disappeared. Good product.

I have used these for over a year and they seem to work. The moles were burrowing in my flower beds and ruining my flowers. I put out a couple of these solar spikes and the moles have disappeared. Good So we were super skeptical about this item... for a few reasons. 1 is that it's hard to prove it's working and 2 we have pets and didn't want them to get annoyed by this.
The box says 7-14 days before ground rodents start to move away from the area- but we put it in a raised bed in the garden and got instant results. We had a pest that was eating our yummies. And it literally stopped coming. Maybe it's more powerful if just placed in a small bed because the power is amplified so much since it doesn't reach as far out as open ground (the product claims a radius of 95 feet).
In any case we like it. 2 Caveats.
1) it pulses every 36 seconds. It is audible close by. Kind of annoying when working in the garden, but easy enough to turn off with the power switch.
2) the box reminds you to not try to drive it into the ground with a hammer since this would break the solar panels on top. It says to drive a pilot in with a steel rod, but probably not everyone has one with the right diameter handy. So be prepared to make a "pilot hole". The base is about an inch thick.

Over the last year I have begun to have a Mole problem in my backyard. Naturally, when I saw the Sweeney's Mole and Gopher Solar Spike on the Vine review program I thought I'd try it. It is not easily installed but I have not had any further signs of activity since putting it into the ground. I have a small yard so for now this one seems to be enough. If my area were larger I would be willing to purchase another.
Amazon ReviewApril 18, 2013
When the snow thaws I'm left with a torn up lawn from the moles. I figured that I've give this product a try as it's easy to use and doesn't cost a ton of money. It was easy to install in my soil. Every 30 seconds or so a sonic pulse penetrates the soil, sending off a penetrating sound which is irritating to moles and gophers. I don't find the sound annoying at all as some have said, I hardly notice it and I've been sitting about five feet away reading in my yard. But the moles will find the sound very annoying and want to leave your yard. It will also discourage other moles and gophers from doing damage to your yard. No batteries are required, you just use the sun for the solar panel. After I inserted the device into the earth, I repaired any damage to the yard that the moles had done during the winter. So far I haven't seen any new damage to my lawn, if I do I'll update my review.

Moles have come within 8" of units and make return trips. It has been over 3 weeks use now. Moles are not in least bit bothered by "sonic" sound. Use your money for another method.
RESPONSE FROM SWEENEY'S
APRIL 24, 2015
When using the spikes, moles will initially move closer to the spike to investigate the source of the new sound, but a decrease in activity should be apparent within 7-14 days. We apologize that was not the experience that you had. Effectiveness depends largely upon soil type: dry, sandy or peat soil does not conduct the sonic waves easily. Moist clay is the best conductor of sound.
We would like the opportunity to learn more about this experience and offer additional support. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 800-800-1819 x 458 for additional assistance.
