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 RateNo More Mounds
I started using these spikes three years ago. They stopped the "little critters" from making those mounds throughout my yard. They are unobtrusive but effective. My only complaint is they don't last more than one year otherwise they would have gotten a five star rating. They are a little expensive to have to purchase every year but they control the moles & gophers without poison.
Review RateThe spikes have not worked I have wasted my money on these. I will not buy any of these again.
These solar spikes have not worked as stated. The spikes that I got last year worked very well but these have not done well at all. I think that I have wasted my money on these. I will not buy any of these again. Thank you for letting me express myself. Roy JobeResponse From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear of this experience. When the spikes are removed from the ground, do you hear a pulsing noise? We would like to learn more about this experience and provide additional assistance. This product is covered by a 30 day return policy and a one year warranty with a copy of the purchase receipt. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for further help.
I bought 2 for my large raised bed garden area and 1 for another area. After a couple of weeks i ordered 3 more because the critter activity had not diminished. After installing the 2nd set of 3 the critter action continued. for another week or so. In my case , it may have taken a little longer to be effective due ti soil conditions. The critters seem to be gone now., YEAH! My garden and other landscape plants say "Thank You" I have lived in Arizona snc 1992 and never had this issue before.
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

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. This product is covered by a one year replacement warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for additional assistance.
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.
Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with any additional questions.
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
