Review RateSeems to be working.I just installed my device yesterday, so I have not noticed a difference, yet. However, I am wondering what other creatures might hear the signal, i.e. birds, squirrels, etc.
Review RateGoodbye to gophers !This is a good product. I have 2 that are on their 3rd season; they over-winter well in the garage and restart working as soon as the sun hits them. I just bought 3 more. They have kept the gophers away from my veg garden where I don't use poison bait. My peonies and strawberry patches are coming back after the gophers got them BEFORE I had the Victor Solar-powered sonic spike. It is best to put the spikes out early in the season before the gophers get established. Thank you for a great invention. They are expensive but if they last at least 3 years, it's not so expensive, and hopefully they'll last even longer.
Review RateStopped working after 2 weeks
Seemed to operate at first and then after 2 weeks, one of the two we purchased stopped vibrating. It was in an area we have gated off so nothing external would have damaged it. Taking them both back for a refund.
Review RateProduct does not work
This is another product I used to get rid of the moles. Didn't work. I have 5 in my yard and my yard has gotten WORST!! Wasted my money on I.Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
It can take 6-10 days for moles and gophers to learn that the noise and vibrations are not going away, and during that time, they may even get close to the spike to investigate! We are glad to hear that you were eventually able to get rid of your yard invaders. Please reach out to us at 855-584-2867 if you have any questions, we're happy to help!
Review RateNot too sure it’s working
We had 2 of your competitor solar spikes and they worked wonderfully. I accidentally stepped on the one in our backyard and it quit working. I purchased your model, the Solar Sonic Spike Repeller. I have a question, is it supposed to make a noise? The competitors solar spike would beep every 30 seconds. That way I knew it was working. I really can’t give a great review because I’m not sure it’s even working .Response From Victor®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for this feedback. When turned on, these spikes will emit a sound every 30 seconds. If the spikes have been inserted into the soil, the sound will not be as audible above ground. Please feel free to reach out to us at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with any questions.
Review RateConvenient design which is completely ineffective
Can't tell any difference. Mole comes and goes as he pleases unless the ground is soaked with castor oil. The spike has been buzzing every 30 seconds for a month, which annoys me, but today's grass damage was within 12-14 feet of the spike. Also, I'm not sure what an "unobstructed" 95 feet range is supposed to mean but there was additional sideyard damage in a straight line from the unit at 45 feet away, unless you count pine tree plus root system as being obstructing.Response From Victor®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
Hi there! We are sorry to hear about those pesky moles! We have passed your feedback on to our Product Manager for review. Pine tree root systems would be an obstruction, and additional spikes may be needed to protect beyond this tree or trees. We appreciate you taking the time to let us know about your experience.
Review Rateterrible, does not work
was really hoping these would work for my mole problem. i bought 2. theyve been in my yard for a few months & even since they were put in the yard, i've noticed mole holes/tunnels all over even within 5ft of the spike. would not recommend.Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
