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.

Review RateDoes this unit make a sound I can hear?
How do you know if this thing works. I hear no beeps ect. Am I suppose to hear anything? I noticed some reviews people say they can.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Before placing the spike in the ground, please slide the switch to the "on" position and hold the spike in your hand. The unit should make a pulsing sound every 30 seconds. Once the spike is placed into the ground, the pulsing sound becomes inaudible to humans.

Review Ratewaste of $120.00
I have a 3/4 Acre lot with many moles. I installed 6 spikes with no observable change in mole activity over the last six months. In fact, the mole activity has increased three-fold. Now 2 of the 6 spikes do not work. I was under the impression that the batteries in solar spikes do not need to be replaced. Well, they don't work and I can see no way to replace the battery without destroying the spike in the process... total waste of $120.00 in my opinion...stick with repellent, traps and grub control. Apparently they like grubs more than they hate noise.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Rateit actually works...Highly recommend.
After 2 weeks of installing the spikes, I can't see a single mole or a ground squirrel around my yard....it is doing a great job for the the last 2 weeks since the install. I was having a hard time cutting my grass, maintaining and cleaning my yard. The moles and squirrels were everywhere. I bought a pack of six spikes and had them installed around my 1 acre lot and now its all cleared up...they have disappeared. Great Product.

Review RateNot happy at all
Worked great for a couple of weeks. Gophers went away, so I turned it off. When they came back, I turned it on, but soon it wouldn't turn off no matter what I did -- kept beeping regardless of where the on-off button was. After a few days, it finally went off. Now the gophers are back and it won't turn on, no matter what I try.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateProduct don't work
Bought two of the sonic spikes for my front yard and the moles are running right next to the I can hear that there are working but they are not repelling at all. I have pics to prove my claim. Can't get my fifty dollars back either because I don't have receipt.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Moles and gophers will start to move away from the area after 7 - 14 days of continuous use. They may initially move closer to inspect the source of annoyance.

Review RateVictor represents quality....they will make it right.
I bought 5 of these for a dirt ditch that is infested with gophers and only two worked. I called customer service and they told me to charge them for 3 to five days. So, I did and after 5 days one of the 3 started to buzz, so I took them back to Lowe's and picked up 2 to replace them. I check to see if they worked before I picked them up and both did, at the store. I installed them in a hole that I have made and turned them on and one did nothing. Let me say that Victor products have always stood by there products they sell and they are good. I have bought serval of the same type as the one's I purchased from Lowe's and they worked great. A couple are still working after 5 years and no gophers! All I want is the same quality product that I purchased victor's in that past. I believe in these solar repellants because the work... I will go on vacation for two week and when I get back I will check the one's I have installed and then make another review. I would like to see a waterproof battery compartment on these just so I am not running back and forth to Lowe's..Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDon't waste your money nor time, they don't work!
These were recommended by my tree guy so I thought I'd try them. I purchased a 2 pk. installed per the directions. At the time I had about 3 mole mounds in the back yard only. After about 2 months I didn't see many new mounds, maybe 2 or 3. However the third month 1 or more have popped up weekly. I then purchased another 2pk. after installing those about a week and a half I began to see more mounds. I now have about 15 to 18 mounds in my yard! It looks horrible and seems to attract them instead of getting rid of them. Terrible product to be so expensive.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateThey attract the moles and gophers
I purchased two solar spikes 2 months ago and after about 3 good weeks I didn't see anymore mounds. However, got back from vacation for a week and lo and behold 5 new mounds in the yard. I purchased 2 more spikes and placed further back in the yard 4 days ago and this morning 3 more new mounds! My yard looks worst now than before I put them out.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience.
Moles and gophers will begin to move out after 7-14 days of continuous use. If a new family of these rodents arrives to the area, they will need time to be repelled as well.

Review Ratedo the spikes really work
Its unknown if the Sweeney's Solar Powered Sonic Spike works at this time. After putting 12 spikes in the ground the moles are digging like crazy. I'll try the product for a month but, if it doesn't drive the moles away and my yard is still getting dug up by the moles I hope Sweeney's will refund my money. Has anyone gotten a refund from Sweeney's if their product didn't work? I have 12 spikes in about an acre. I think that should be enough to drive away the moles if the product really works. I'll give the review rate 1 until I know for sure if it works or not.Response From Victor®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
When these spikes are first placed in the yard, moles may initially dig closer to the product to investigate the source of the disturbance. Once they figure out that the unpleasant environment is there to stay, they will be ready to leave! A decrease in activity is normally seen within 7-10 days.
Our products are backed by a 30 day return policy. If not satisfied with a product, please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867).
