Sweeney’s® Mole & Gopher Granular Repellent – 10LB

Mole and Gopher Repellent

Protect your lawn from moles, gophers, voles, armadillos and other burrowing animals with Sweeney’s® Mole & Gopher 2X Concentration Repellent. This powerful, dual action repellent works to repel animals by taste and smell. Made with specially engineered castor oil covered granules, the repellent penetrates soil easily to reach underground tunnels quickly.

Sweeney’s® Mole & Gopher Repellent contains a powerful, concentrated formula of 20% castor oil, which is twice the industry standard, to safely and effectively drive burrowing animals from lawns and gardens. Safe and poison free, the repellent is safe to use in gardens, on grass and around children and pets.

Sweeney’s® mole and gopher castor oil repellent comes in a convenient, re-sealable 10 lb bag that provides 10,000 square feet of coverage. After applying the granules, water the product into the ground to quickly activate the tunnel penetrating formula. The concentrated repellent makes the ground smell and taste unpleasant, sending underground pests hurrying away to find a more hospitable place to live.

Drive Away Burrowing Animals

Sweeney’s® Mole & Gopher Repellent uses castor oil to control mole and gopher invasions. The repellent works by driving moles and other burrowing animals out of your yard and garden in stages. Avoid treating your entire lawn in one application as this will cause the unwanted pests to tunnel aimlessly in any direction to try and escape the repellent. Applying the granules over the affected area in stages will steadily herd moles away from your lawn and garden.

Mole and Gopher Repellent How to Propel Pests from Property

Locate active runs or tunnels in your yard before applying Sweeney’s castor oil repellent. This will enable you to establish which direction to steer burrowing animals from your yard.

  • Day 1 – Spread the castor oil granules over the first area and water the area with a sprinkler for roughly 20 minutes. This will allow the concentrated granules to penetrate deeply into the ground.
  • Day 2 – Spread the granules over the next area; water-in the same area as day 1, plus the second area to get the pest moving. Continual watering of the area allows the repellent granules to penetrate more deeply into the ground.
  • Day 3 – Spread granules over the third area. Also water the same area that you did on days 1 and 2, as well as the third area to keep the mole or gopher moving away from your property.
  • Day 4 – 4th Day - Spread the granules over the fourth area. Water in the same area as days 1, 2 and 3, plus the fourth area to eliminate your mole or gopher problem and take back control of your yard.

Helpful hint: Punch holes in tunnels at five foot intervals and shake a small amount of granules directly into the tunnel, then cover the hole with soil.

It works! By Becky

9 years ago I had moles all over. I used the mole repellant in conjunction with mole gummy worms poison until they were all gone - it took 1 season to move them out. I now use the repellent on the whole perimeter of my property each spring in conjunction with the solar sonic repellers. I haven't had a mole since.

Mole(s) B Gone By 1coinhunt
Product does a remarkable job of keeping the Moles at bay. Before using this product I was over run with the pest tunneling up our turf. Follow the directions and apply regularly or they will move back in on you.

Didn\'t work By Miss VG
I have a small yard, followed directions and used a second bag in hopes of driving the moles away. I swear, they must love this stuff because my yard is torn up worse than before I used Sweeney's. Will not repurchase.

Sweeney is working for me By Lakeguy184

I have been battening moles for several years, I think I finally am winning the battle. I have figured out that the hey is keeping the Sweeneys in the ground, and the more it rains the more often I have to apply. Our biggest problem is that our entire yard is probably a 10 to 15 degree slope, thus after a gully washer rain I always re-apply. It must be working because other lawns in our area which are un-treated, all have tons of mole activity. I do notice occasionally new activity into the yard from the outskirts, then a day or two later it disappears, so apparently they don't like the taste of our lawn anymore !

Easy Application By LinnH

So far, we are seeing results by using this product. We have an acre lawn so it's taken a while to treat it. We love the fact it's not harmful to children and pets. Takes that worry away!

Magic bullet By timetomow59

I've been at war with moles in my yard for the past few years. This year, for whatever reason, was particularly bad since they moved from the backyard into my pristine front yard. They started in one corner and cotinued to make their way across my yard ruining years of my hard work. Like everyone says, "I tried everything and nothing worked". I tried Sweeney's granules last year with no success, but in retrospect, I didn't really follow the instructions. Consequently, out of desperation, I tried again. This time I followed the instructions, and it worked. However, the most important message to your customers would be to be patient! Results are NOT immediate, but after 2-3 days it was if there was a line the moles wouldn't cross. It's been about a month now, and I haven't had any new mole activity in the treated areas. Now I can focus my efforts on re-seeding and repairing the damage done. I intend to repeat application of Sweeney's granules every month as a way to keep the moles away for good. Thank you.

All About
learn about mole and mole trap


Moles are helpful in that they remove damaging insects and grubs from lawns and gardens. Unfortunately, however, their burrowing habits can destroy grass, gardens and flower beds and tear up tree roots.

learn about gopher and gopher trap

Gophers excavate soil from their tunnels, creating large, horseshoe-shaped mounds.  Gopher mounds are typically larger than Mole hills with the entrance hole at an angle to the ground surface.
