Sweeney’s® Mole & Gopher Granular Repellent – 4 lb
Repelling moles, gophers, voles, armadillos and other burrowing animals is safe and easy with Sweeney’s® Mole & Gopher Granular Repellent – 4 lb. This fast-acting dual action repellent works to repel unwanted pests by taste and smell. Made with specially engineered castor oil pellets, the repellent is easily absorbed into the ground, allowing the repellent to reach the tunnel quickly.
This all- natural, poison free mole and gopher repellent with castor oil is safe to use on lawns and gardens as well as around children and pets when used as directed. Sweeney’s® mole and gopher repellent comes in a convenient, re-sealable 4 lb bag. After applying, water the product into the ground to quickly activate the granules. This formula penetrates the tunnel and makes it smell and taste unpleasant, sending the unwanted pests scurrying to find a more favorable place to live.
Stew Clarke, Sweeney's® Director of Research, provides tips on how to get rid of moles and gophers with Sweeney's® Mole & Gopher Repellent:
Effective elimination of moles – how it works
Sweeney’s® Mole & Gopher Repellent works by slowly driving burrowing animals away in stages. Avoid treating the entire lawn in one application – this may cause moles to tunnel wildly in any direction to escape the repellent. Applying the granules over the lawn in stages will steadily herd moles away from the lawn area not yet invaded by moles.
How to apply:
Before applying the castor oil granules in your yard, locate the active mole areas to determine which way to move moles out of your yard.
- Day 1, spread the granules over the first area and water-in with a sprinkler for approximately 20 minutes. Watering allows the concentrated granules to penetrate deeply into the lawn.
- Day 2, spread the granules over the second area; water-in the same area as Day 1, plus the second area to get the mole moving. Each day's watering allows granules to penetrate more deeply.
- Day 3, spread granules over the third area. Water-in the same area as days 1 and 2, plus the third area to keep the mole moving.
- Day 4, spread the granules over the fourth area. Water-in the same area as Days 1, 2, and 3, plus the fourth area to move the mole out of your yard!

We have tried all of your products and followed the directions precisely, however we still have holes through your garden and lawn. This year we lost fennel plants, hostas (approximately 50), perennials and specimen plantings. The plants are there one minute and then suddenly they are gone! They are so destructive. We have spent endless amounts of money and we've had no luck at all. There has to be a remedy, however we haven't found it yet.

Review RateAmazon ReviewSo far so good. I have used the repellent in combination with the sweeny sonic mole repellers. The moles have not left entirely but there has been a dramatic improvement.
Review RateAmazon ReviewThis product worked wonders on a gopher that would not quit digging under our concrete block backyard perimeter wall and going to town on our brand new landscaping (god only knows what it might have done to our new drip irrigation system). We didnt' want to use traps because the poor critters suffer horribly before they actually die - we couldn't bring ourselves to do that. So we tried the granules and followed the directions EXACTLY. Worked like a charm. We haven't seen hide nor hair of the little dude since! If you have a smaller area to cover than most (our yard isn't that big so we didn't want to buy a spreader), definitely get the shaker bag.
Review RateAmazon ReviewI've had gophers tunneling under my house/in my yard since I moved in 3 years ago. I surrounded the house (leaving an escape route as per instructions). I have not seen another gopher mound since (2 months ago).
Review RateAmazon ReviewI had high hopes for this product to work on my yard. I used other remedies to get rid of the gophers and this was my last resort. It did not work. I may not have watered enough.
Review RateAmazon Reviewthis product works, it ran off a pocket gopher that was ruining my back garden. be aware you need to apply it several times though.
Review RateAmazon ReviewMoles and/or Voles were turning my garden into swiss cheese. After putzing around for 2 years, I put this stuff down twice about 7 days between apps, right before some forcasted rain showers...this really works. I have to admit, I put it down about 2x per the instructions, and then followed up with a liquid concentrate from another company, covering the gardens and lawn. I would definitely use this again!
Review RateAmazon ReviewI followed the directions and while I still see some raised areas of dirt indicating my mole friend has been around there are far less than there used to be. It may be that it just needs time to dissolve and sink into the soil. Overall I would give it a grade of a B.
