Victor® Sonic Spike™ 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.
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.

Not happy with this product By JB

Bought a 3 pack, says 2 spikes cover 1500 sq feet. I have pets and didn't want to use poisons. They've been in the ground over 2 months and gophers are 20 feet away cratering my yard. 1 of the three spikes quit not long after it was installed, quit beeping. Only reason I wound up keeping them was because I lost the receipt from Home Depot. Might be a better idea to go with a different method. Tired of stepping in ruts and twisting my ankle !! I think the idea of annoying these little critters is great but this product just don't get'r done. Save your money or buy a different product that's actually effective.

Response From Victor®
Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Thank you for sharing this recent experience with these spikes. If the spikes are no longer emitting the sonic pulses, then the gophers would have nothing to repel them. Not to worry, these spikes are covered under a one year replacement policy. To proceed with a replacement, please contact us at with your full name, physical mailing address, number of spikes that were purchased, and approximately when they were purchased. 

It is also important to note, that in many cases, a multi-tiered approach is best to eliminate unwanted gophers from a yard.
