Description

Sweeney’s® Solar Power Sonic Spikes™

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.

Not happy at all By n/a

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.

Product don't work By Jeff

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.

Victor represents quality....they will make it right. By Murel

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..

Don't waste your money nor time, they don't work! By Yard Woman

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.

They attract the moles and gophers By Dedicated homeowner

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.

Sound is missing from both By HankH

Response From Victor®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Hank,

We apologize for this experience and are happy to help.

The battery in the solar-powered spike may need to be charged up in the sunshine before the unit will start working.  We recommend allowing 3-5 days to gain a full starting charge.

Batteries? By anonymous
The unit S9014 should have accessability to batteries. Especially if it is overcast for most of the month as would occur in winter in the upper mid west. The ability to recharge the Ni-MH batteries is a most.. Would like a refund.

not so great By baileykat
Got it for moles. They love it. Built a tunnel fight next to it.

Results should be seen after 7-14 days of continuous use. Initially, moles may burrow closer to investigate the source of annoyance. When they learn that they can not make it disappear, they will start to move out.

Don\'t waste your money By Kim S
We had agressive gophers in our lawn, and these spikes did absolutely nothing. In fact, shortly after installing them, we found that the GOPHERS had obviously made attempts at uprooting the spike!
Response From Victor®
Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
Gophers often dig up to the spikes when they are first installed to investigate the source of the disturbance. A decrease in activity should be seen within 7-14 days.

Patience pays off - they\'re gone By Bobws56
Not sure what critter(s) we had, but these stakes seem to have worked. My rodent friends may have been prairie dogs (we live in the SF Bay Area). It has been about two weeks since I placed two stakes in my yard and I have not seen any evidence of the critters in the last four days. Prior to this, the drain covers in our lawn drainage system were popped off nearly every night. The system provided a ready-made burrow and tunnel system for the little guys. There were areas in the yard that were dug up where the rodents were digging for grubs. My 3-pronged attack included two sonic stakes, repellent and traps.

I placed spring traps in the drain holes, but to no avail. I also spread gopher and mole repellent on the lawn to discourage the pests. I do believe this helped. I was losing patience with the sonic stakes and was going to resort to poisoned bait. Fortunately, the stakes seemed to have worked. It did take a full two weeks. The drain covers have stayed in place and there has been no damage in the yard for five days now. Success!!

learn about mole and mole trap

Moles

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.

More About Moles»

Gophers

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.
