Sweeney’s® Solar Power Sonic Spike™ - 3 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 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.

Review RateDo not buy
I put three of these in my yard and the mole activity hasn't slowed down a bit. There is about a 2-foot radius around each spike where there aren't any holes or trails, but that is it. Definitely not the 75-ft diameter that was advertised. Not effective.Response From Victor®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
When first installed, it is common for moles to burrow closer to the spikes, to investigate the source of the disturbance. A decrease in activity can normally be seen within 7-10 days, once they realize the unpleasant environment is continuing.

Review RateWould not recommend
They haven't worked. I was very skeptical but my boyfriend wanted to try them. It was a waste of money.Response From Victor®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this valuable feedback, we apologize that the desired results were not seen.
How long have the spikes been installed? A decrease in activity should be seen within approximately 10-14 days.

Review RateSonically rid molesWe moved to a new house surrounded on 2 sides by woods/natural area. We have had mole tunnels all through the yard. Bought and installed the Sweeney's Solar powered spikes and after one week have seen significant improvement, so bought 3 more to cover the rest of yard. Hopefully the victory will continue as well as it has started.
Review Ratesolar powered spikesI have used the solar spikes for gophers before. To my surprise they seem to work, neighbors have gophers, I don't.
