A half year ago we had several vole holes in our front lawn. I tried various vole repellants, but finally got rid of them with these smoke bombs. The first bomb did not end the activity, but I finally figured out that there were several vole tunnels that were not connected. I put bomb in the tunnel entrance and covered it with a brick. Four tunnels, four bombs. I just noticed a vole has dug a new hole, so I'm going to buy some more smoke bombs.

I used both this and a similar product (AMDRO 6 pack) to flush Norway rats out of their burrows. I found this to be the inferior brand, producing less smoke and shorter burn time at a higher price per unit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jose555 Very effective
First of all, you have to close off all avenues of escape. THEN you have to make sure that the bomb has taken when it is in the hole before you cover the hole with dirt. You can put out the bomb if you cover the hole with dirt too early. In the area, there are a lot of slab front porches and driveways. These do not have the footing that prevent critters living beneath them. Getting them right before it gets cold takes care of them for some time. Now, since it is the environment that they seek, they will come back, but vigilance will keep them from re establishing. This will keep you from getting a bunch of clay ground squirrels wired up as if they are on the movie caddy shack as a gag gift at Christmas.

I trapped a skunk after trying for woodcuck. Put a tarp tent over havahart trap, held down the tarp with stones and such. Put a 4" stove pipe into his tent and I capped off pipe with a coffee can all of the 3 times I lit the smoke bomb. Three times in a 5 cubic foot space, nothing. I let him go.

I normally don't mind ground hogs but when they made a hole under my patio and started chewing on my patio door trim I decided they had to go. I bought these smoke bombs and the first pack I tried I thought they worked at first, but then I saw the ground hogs a couple days later. I thought maybe they weren't in the holes when I smoked them so I bought another pack. This time I waited until I chased them into the holes. I dropped the bomb in and plugged the hole up best I could. There was a little smoke escaping and it was very toxic smelling. About 15 minutes later I saw the ground hog running from the hole towards the woods! Couple days later and he came back, same exact thing happened! I used all 5 on these guys and every time the ground hog dug out of the hole 15 or 20 minutes later and ran away. These bombs just don't work on them hogs!

These do not kill groundhogs. I chased one into the hole, boarded up the exit, dropped in one, and boarded up the entrance. 30 minutes later I dropped in a second bomb. The next day I saw that the groundhog had dug another hole out right next to the original entrance and was happily trotting around the yard. Do not waste your money on these.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Debo Had them on the run!
I bought this because I had a mouse colony in my back yard living underground, I bought a few boxes of revenge, dropped them in various holes and the mice began running for their lives! The only issue is, they come back. This works well if you bomb once a month to keep them away, if not, they will come back again.
