It seems to be working. I bought the solar powered one which seems to be a good idea based on some other comments about battery life. At first I thought it was not operating but then came to realize it only "beeps" about every 30 seconds, not constant. Also, as mentioned on the box it takes some days to become effective. The first day I had a hole near the same area, the next two days- holes but about 5 feet away from original area, finally after about 5 days and now for about a week- no holes. Hoping it continues to work and my back lawn can get back to normal.Date published: 2015-06-05Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from DO NOT WORK I HAVE 5 OF THESE IN MY YARD AND I STILL HAVE MOLE ALL OVER THE PLACE. I DO NOT RECOMMEND.Date published: 2015-06-03Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Works great I have two sonic spikes covering 1500-2000 sq ft. In one month the moles were gone and have not been back in 6 months now. Batteries hold up well. Make sure you pull them out before you mow over them. Ask me how I know!Date published: 2015-04-13Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous from undependable One out of four did not work. After two seasons they all but one quit working. VERY DISAPPOINTED.Date published: 2015-04-03Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Helpful hints for Spikes My spikes worked but it takes longer than 5 days. It took about 21 days to work. What would help if the company showed how to setup the spikes up (ex. how fare apart and locations). Also you must move them as the gophers start to leave. The hardest thing is to get the spikes in the ground. It would be very helpful if they had a tool go with it. Good LuckDate published: 2014-09-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from no more moles/gophers guy I had a bunch of moles/gophers destroying my yard, put in a few these spikes and now my neighbors have the problem.... they worked great for meDate published: 2014-09-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Sonic Spikes work We have a severe problem with moles. I've had them pop up just after mowing a spot. I get turned around and there it is. They nest in the trees next to one lawn area and have terrorized the lawn. I put a spike here just before growing season and to date, not a single mole. The next area is very large and more than the 95 ft specified. I put a spike in the middle with about 95% success. The first mole that popped up was exactly on the stick. I believe there is one in the nest that suffers with tinnitus. Other than that I'm extremely satisfied.Date published: 2014-06-06Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Moles After trying various methods I noticed the Sonic Spikes at Lowes.

How to activate spike
It seems that if the spike is planted too firmly in the ground it will not emit a sound in 30-second intervals. The interval can be much longer or not at all. I had to loosen the dirt around the spike. Is this a known issue?

Moles are helpful in that they remove damaging insects and grubs from lawns and gardens. Unfortunately, however, their burrowing habits can destroy grass, gardens and flower beds and tear up tree roots.
Gophers excavate soil from their tunnels, creating large, horseshoe-shaped mounds. Gopher mounds are typically larger than Mole hills with the entrance hole at an angle to the ground surface.
