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.

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.

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.

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.

do the spikes really work By none

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).

Waste of money. Does not work. By Overrun By Gophers

Does not work. Out of 8 spikes purchased, only 2 are working less than 6 weeks after purchase. If it were possible to give 0 stars I would.

A full solar charge will last up to 5 days. The amount of time needed to keep a full charge will depend on how much sun the placement provides.

Q&A
Q.We have a major vole infestation, does this work on them also?
A.

This product is recommended for moles and gophers.

Q.Confused about charging: aren't these continually being recharged in sunlight? You say to first charge for 3 days with unit ON?? Why not OFF? What is purpose of ON-OFF switch? If the charge lasts "5 days", what happens after that?? Instructions here are very unclear. Wish the packaging had been more clear that the batteries are NOT replaceable. Others that I have used are.
A.

When the switch is in the "on" position, it allows the spike to charge continually and emit sonic pulses every 30 seconds to repel the moles and gophers. The spike should be turned to the off position to store for the winter. 

When the product is first taken out of the package and turned on, if there is no sonic pulse heard, we recommend charging for three days in the "on" position. If there is a period of no sun, the unit will work for five days before needing to be recharged.

Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for further assistance.

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.

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.
