Sweeney’s® Mole & Gopher Poison Peanuts
Stop lawn damage fast with the #1 selling mole and gopher bait. Sweeney's® Poison-Peanuts act as bait to attract moles and gophers. When ingested, the poison peanuts quickly kill the moles and gophers. The cleverly designed canister features a cone tip that allows users to punch holes in active tunnel surfaces for easy application of the pellets.
Application Tips to Help Win the War on Moles
Prior to treatment, determine which burrows are active by either pressing down a small section of the tunnel or removing a one inch section of the tunnel’s roof. Mark these sections and re-check in 24 to 48 hours. The burrow is considered active if the flattened runway has been raised up or if the roof has been repaired. Only treat active burrows.
After identifying active burrows, carefully punch a hole in the top of active tunnels with pointed end of cone, drop in a teaspoonful of the pellets, and carefully close the hole with sod or stone. Do not collapse the runway again or allow loose soil to cover the bait. After a few days, check the burrows to see if they are still active. If so, repeat treatment.

Wearing waterproof gloves, collect and dispose of dead, exposed animals. Dispose of leftover bait in accordance with disposal instructions on package.

Review RateProduct does NOT work
I purchased three (3) cones of Sweeney's Mole & Gopher Poison Peanuts and strategically placed them inside the main tunnels and offshoot tunnels, and it did NOT work. The moles are still active and in fact have extended the network of tunnels and are destroying my yard. I have read that moles do not eat poison peanuts because they recognize the poison and that the active ingredient in this product is the least effective of all of the available mole poisons on the market even if they do eat it. This apparently is true, attested by my experience and I do NOT recommend this product.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. Prior to treatment, we recommend determining which burrows are active by either pressing down a small section of the tunnel or removing a one inch section of the tunnel’s roof. Mark these sections and re-check in 24 to 48 hours. The burrow is considered active if the flattened runway has been raised up or if the roof has been repaired. We recommend treating active burrows only.

Review RateVery good product
Works like it should. I like the ease of use with cone container.
Review RateWill continue to use as the product works.
I have been using this product for the past two years to control the moles in my yard. There seems to be a great influx of them early in the summer, so there are many hills to treat initially. But as they die off from peanuts---and they do--control becomes a bit easier as there are now fewer mounds and it is much easier to identify which are currently active by the fresh soil.

Review RateDON'T BUY!
After using nearly a package of Sweeney's poison peanuts, I have to say that, at best, it might be responsible for making a mole move from one location to another. I've used it for weeks, and the mole is still in the yard.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear about this experience, John, and appreciate the feedback.
This product should be placed only in active tunnels. It does not repel moles. Our Consumer Relations Team will be glad to provide assistance. We can be reached at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867).
Review RateI'll use it first next time!
I had tried 3 kinds of traps, a device that shoots blanks, smoke bombs and all I did was train the moles for war. I used this bait once in my front yard and in the backyard and haven't had a problem for 3 weeks. I followed the directions and sent them to wherever moles go when they die. I now have grass growing where the mounds once were and my lawn and garden are recovering. I live in the Pacific Northwest/Willamette Valley.
Review RateThis product is amazing and does a great job on rodent control!
We are using the Sweeney's Mole and Gopher Poison Peanuts to rid our three acres of Prairie Dogs. The product does a great job on these rodents. The problem is the rancher across the road who does not use this product. The prairie dogs continue to cross into our yard but thankfully for this product we are winning the war in our own yard!
Review Ratedidn't work at all
Didn't work in NC-moles didn't eat it at all. It brought more moles from across the street to visit my yard.Response From Victor®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this experience. We apologize that the desired results were not seen when using this product. When placing the moleworms, it is important to ensure that they are located in active tunnels or runs. Also, the moleworm should not be covered by dirt as the mole may ignore it when passing through or repairing a tunnel.
We would like to learn more about this occurrence and take this opportunity to make things right. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for additional assistance.
