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 and 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.

  • STEP 3-To activate, slide switch to "ON".
  • STEP 4-Remove Solar Powered Sonic Spike™ when flooding may occur or before ground freezes.

Unit just stopped working By Gisele

I bought this product last season and it worked fine, however, after putting it back into the ground and letting it charge in the sun it has not started up again. As it was last year I don't have the receipt any longer. If it's solar it should keep working as my solar lights do? There doesn't seem to be a way to open it if there is a solar battery that needs replacing. What can be done? I have GE hot rollers that still work and date back to 1975, can't we make things in America that last anymore more than one year?

Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello,

We are very sorry for this unusual experience! When used as directed, this product should last for many years without incident. Was the unit charged in the "on" position? If not, we recommend doing so for 3-5 days. If after charging you are not able to hear the spike pulsating, we recommend replacing it.

Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with any questions or for additional assistance.

Seems to work for skunks also By Chad

Seems to work just fine. It keeps beeping even when it is switched "off", but otherwise it seems to have worked. We actually bought it to get rid of skunks under our deck, and they haven't returned since we placed this product in the area.

Cruddy product By Bob

Bought 5 Sonic Gopher and Mole repellent sticks. Lasted only a short period of time. The company did substitute a newer model as a replacement. They have lasted only a few months.......now they will not replace again. Waste of $120. My only hope is to chase down the moles and beat them to death with the "non solar" solar sticks.

Response From Victor®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience. As discussed, the solar spikes are covered by a one year warranty with a copy of the purchase receipt. Since we provided a one time courtesy replacement in the past, a copy of the purchase receipt is needed for all future warranty claims. We recommend charging the spikes in full sunlight for 5 days.

It only worked for a day - not long enough to get rid of the gopher By Sarah

I bought one of these and the first time I turned it on, it made a noise. Then about 30 seconds later it made the noise again, but a day or so later I went to put it outside and found it didn't make the noise again. I suspect that they didn't get all of the wires connected inside.

Does this unit make a sound I can hear? By Dennis

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.

waste of $120.00 By Al

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.

it actually works...Highly recommend. By Jose

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.

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.

Response From Victor®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.  

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.

Q&A
Q.So I ordered several of these all worked out of the box except one, which does not work at all. How do I troubleshoot these?
A.

We recommend leaving the spike in the full sunlight in the "on" position for three to five days to allow it to charge. If after this time frame it still does not pulse, please contact us directly for warranty assistance. Our Consumer Relations Team can be reached at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867).

Q.How many spikes would I need for 1 1/2 acres of land?
A.

One spike will cover up to 7,500 square feet.

Q.Mine stopped working after a year. Can you replace the rechargeable batteries?
A.

We apologize as the batteries in this spike are not replaceable. If the unit is no longer pulsing, we recommend a new spike.

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.

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.
