Victor® Sonic Spike - 2 Pack

Safely send moles and gophers scurrying from your yard unharmed with this easy-to-use mole and gopher spike. When placed in the ground and activated, sonic pulses penetrate the soil, emitting a sound which is highly irritating to moles and gophers who are virtually blind and overly sensitive to sound and vibrations. Climate permitting, leave the sonic mole and gopher repeller in the ground to repel new generations of pests.

Removable Battery Sleeve

Removable Battery Sleeve

The mole and gopher sonic spike is designed with a convenient removable battery sleeve for trouble-free battery replacement. A Spike will work for 4 – 6 months on one set of alkaline batteries. Spike must be used continuously for 7-14 days before moles and gophers start to move away from the area.

Proper Placement

Be sure to insert the Spike into the soil so that the cap is flush with the ground to avoid tripping hazards and the chance of hitting it with a lawnmower. Effectiveness depends largely upon soil type: dry, sandy or peat soil does not conduct the sonic waves easily. Moist clay is the best conductor of sound.

Proper Placement
How to Use

How to Use

  1. To open, unscrew YELLOW cap counter-clockwise.
  2. Remove battery cartridge and insert 3 "D" cell batteries. Re-insert the battery cartridge into the Spike. If battery installation is correct, you will hear the first vibrating sound within 15 seconds.
  3. Tighten the cap securely to keep moisture out.
  4. Use a wooden or steel rod to make pilot holes prior to inserting the Mole & Gopher Sonic Spikes™. To prevent damage, do not hammer the Spike into the ground.
  5. Insert Spike until the bottom of the cap begins touching the ground.
  6. Insert Spike all the way into the ground. This will prevent the chance of hitting it with a lawnmower. Be certain to insert the Spike so that the cap is flush with the ground. If it protrudes an inch or two it could be a tripping hazard. Remember where the Spike is located so it may be removed for battery replacement.
  7. Remove Sonic Spike™ when flooding may occur or before ground freezes.

They don’t work.
May 17, 2023
They don’t work. I installed them correctly, I put them twenty feet apart. They are making noise but the gophers don’t mind them at all. In fact two out of four I installed have the gophers burrowing a foot away.

We're sorry to hear this! Moles and gophers can’t see well, meaning they are very sensitive to sound and vibrations. Initially it is common for them to try investigating the source of the disturbance, even tunneling close to the spike, trying to figure out what is causing the noise. Normally, a decrease in activity should be seen in about 7-14 days. Please feel free to give us a call at 855-584-2867 for assistance.
At first they worked great.
Sep 16, 2022
At first they worked great. One makes a beep frequently and keeps all away. One stopped beating (at least i cannot hear it clearly like the other) and squirrels seemed to appear. Not sure what issue is. Batteries are good. Waiting on replacement.

I have four mole and ...
Jun 8, 2022
I have four mole and gopher Sonic spikes and two of them lasted less than 6 months, the other two lasted just over a year. Victor replace two of the spikes but again these lasted less than 6 months. There seems to be a problem with the seal around the top cover that goes over the LED panel because one of the spikes was completely filled with water the other was partially filled with water. I contacted Victor over this and I was told you should take them up when there is heavy rain, which I think is a little ridiculous as I'm not always here when it rains heavily to remove them. Also, no where in the operating instructions does it mention taking them up when there is heavy rain. It does say not to place them where flooding may occur. There does appear to be a problem with the sealing of the cover over the LED panel. Victor customer service did not respond to the problem. I was asked if I had the receipt. Unfortunately after a year, I have no idea where the receipt would be. Therefore they declined to replace two of them. When you first get these spikes they do appear to work but they don't have longevity and it does appear that the cover over the LED panel is not a very waterproof seal. Considering the cost of these spikes I would recommend that you think twice before buying them particularly, if you have to take them up every time this heavy rain.

We are sorry to hear this happened! These spikes are okay in rain, but they should be removed if there will be any flooding.

Good product
May 11, 2021
I bought a pack of the Victor Gopher Sonic Spikes on 2/25/21 and placed them in my backyard garden area where I have had problems with gophers for over 2 years and nothing would stop them from returning to my yard. They were really chewing up my lawn area which I had just completed. I saw the info. online and wanted to give them a try, I had tried many other things with no real success so why not? They are easy to install. I placed them where my large yard would have the most coverage. Today is May 11 and I have had no signs of the gophers either in my garden area nor my lawn. First time in over two years! I have cats visit my yard from time to time, and one tried to dig up where I had placed a spike. This bothered me as I had just put them in, then I realized that they were really working because the cat thought he heard a gopher under ground and wanted to catch him but he only heard the noise that the trap puts out. You cannot hear them but animals can. Good product. I would recommend them to anyone who has a gopher problem. Ken from Downey, Calif.

keeps moles away if they are functioning
May 3, 2021
I did have a couple stop working rather quickly, but they were replaced by customer service without issue. I find that they work on keeping the moles away as long as they are functioning. I have to agree with a previous comment they need to be better built electronics to be more durable to failure. It seems I have to go out and check them regularly otherwise the moles are back within a day of failure.

Don’t waste 40 a pair
Nov 20, 2020
Have had 4 less than 6 months . Put new batteries in and they are inaudible. Even pulled out of the ground up to my ear and very faint beep. Not worth the 40 bucks a pair. Worked great for 3 months then I couldn’t hear them. Both pairs. I have 2 in the back yard and two in front. Can’t hear any of them now even with new batteries.

Nice product
Oct 21, 2020
Bought these at my local tractor supply for I believe voles because have no dirt mounds in yard. They worked great. After two years one is still working and other quit . Thought battery’s went bad but have replaced them like normal and still doesn’t work. Cannot find any rust or corrosion or anything else that could cause it not to work. Have voles back in my veggie garden wrecking havoc. Great while they lasted.
