Sweeney’s® Solar Power Sonic Spike™ - 6 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 RateGood, up to a point.
I've used a number of these over the past 3 years or so and as far as I can tell, they work, but - the main issue is this: If you buy these from a dealer (eBay, whatever) who had them stored in a dark place (in a box, dark storage room, etc.), the internal battery (that you can't change) can go dead without the the solar cell being active. If the battery depletes to 0% and stays like that long enough, it then becomes an unchargeable battery. The spike will still work in that event, but only when the sun is shining on the solar cell.
Review RateGood price in a convenient package
I have used these spikes previously; they do send the moles else where!
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 Rategood item
have used and like
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).
Review RateWaste of money. Does not work.
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.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.
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.

Review RateGround Squirrels are impervious
The spikes do not work for Ground Squirrels. Took 4 days for one of them to charge up but when time is of the essence, that's not a good feature. Searching the site, I see no products that reference "Ground Squirrels". They are prevalent all over Oregon/Washington/Idaho. Wish there was a product for them buggers. My only option is a varmint rifle but I can't discharge a weapon inside city limits. :-( Buying one Deadset just to see if I can get 'em.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and appreciate the feedback.
This product is effective for moles and gophers. We do not currently have a product designed for ground squirrels, but will share this suggestion with our Product Managers.

We have had a lot of success using solar spikes. Could be 5 but sometimes they make a beeping sound which annoys me too.
Works. Really made the mole mad, left where I'd placed the spikes and tore up more yard. So I'll be buying more to rid them completely
I bought 2. Charged them in the sun before turning on but after a day, not a peep! Useless waste of money!Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for the feedback. We apologize for this experience.
The units may not be fully charged yet. It can take up to 3-5 days in the sun to gain a full initial charge.
