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.

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.

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.

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.

Q&A
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.

Q.Had my solar spike installed and it was working great! Pulled it up, turned it off and brought it inside when we were expecting a heavy rain. Took it back outside 24 hours ago. Turned it on and put the spike back into the hole. We have had plenty of sun. Yet this evening, again 24 hours later, it is not working. I have sat and counted the time. Turned it off and on. Waited, no noise, or vibration. Anymore troubleshooting tips? I have only had this one for less than a month.
A.

We recommend letting the spike charge in full sun for 3-5 days in the on position. Then, pull the spike out of the ground and listen for the sonic pulses every 30 seconds. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for further assistance.

Q.My solar powered sonic spike is making a noise that I can hear. It's been properly installed in the ground. I can hear it beep every 32 seconds. My other sonic spike I have doesn't make a noise. So is my second one defective? I just bought my second one last week.
A.

e recommend removing the spike from the ground and holding it in your hand for one full minute. Does the spike pulse? If so, it is working correctly. As long as the spikes are making a sound, it does not matter how loud or faint they are. If the spike does not pulse, please 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.

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.
