Victor® Sonic Spike™- 2 Spikes Safely send moles and gophers scurrying from your yard unharmed with this Victor® Sonic 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.
Mole and Gopher Spike
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.

How to Use
  1. STEP 1 - To open, unscrew YELLOW cap counter-clockwise.
  2. STEP 2 - Remove battery cartridge and insert batteries. Re-insert the battery cartridge into the Spike. If installation is correct, you will hear vibrating sound within 15 seconds.
  3. STEP 3 - Tighten the cap securely to keep moisture out.
  4. STEP 4 - Make pilot holes prior to inserting the Mole & Gopher Sonic Spikes™. Do not hammer the Spike into the ground, as this could cause damage.
  5. STEP 5 - Insert Spike until the bottom of the cap begins touching the ground.
  6. STEP 6 - Insert Spike completely in the ground. This will prevent damage from a lawnmower. Insert the Spike with the cap flush with the ground. Above the ground, it could be a tripping hazard. Remember where the Spike is located so it may be removed for battery replacement.
  7. STEP 7 - Remove Sonic Spike™ during flooding and before ground freezes.

They do not work By Grin

Picked up a pair of these from my local farm supply store to try, since I had tried pretty much every other product to drive the moles from my yard. It has been almost 2 months and I seem to now have more moles in my yard then when I started using them. I have a really small yard that is half of what these claim to cover. Also the moles have even built mounds right next to the spikes. I know the spikes are functioning because I can hear them. I honestly cannot recommend buying and using.

about 1/2 stop working quickly....not a battery issue...shoddily made By Amy

These are good for as long as they work, but have gotten several and about half either don't work out of the box or they stop working quickly. These need to be a sturdier product....shoddy craftsmanship.

Q.Will this drive away tree squirrels? I want to get rid of gophers but not the tree squirrels

Once the spikes are inserted into the ground, the sound will be fairly muffled. We have not seen any evidence that squirrels will be bothered.

Q.I live in Indiana. Can I place in ground if it is wintertime ? The temperatures have been mild and the ruins are active.

We recommend these spikes be removed from the ground when a freeze threatenes as the cold can damage the plastic. If temperatures remain above freezing, they can still be used.

Q.How do I make a hole large enough (2" dia.) in thick clay-type soil to get the battery operated sonic spikes into my ground? I also have to deal with tree roots in the area I need to place the spikes.

We do not have recommendations for how to make the holes in a specific soil type. The effecitiveness of this product will be diminished by dense tree roots.
