Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jules this product works
I have been using the gopher and mole remover for over a year now. It was highly effective. I have not had a gopher problem since they were inserted into the ground.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RestoreTheShore1142 IT WORKED-NO MORE SQUIRRELS IN TRASHCANS!!!
I purchased this because I wanted something to keep the squirrels out of my Rubbermaid trash can (that they chewed a hole in the top of to get into) without poisons or other chemicals. This works PERFECTLY!!! The squirrels still come up onto my deck and jump ONTO the cans every once in a while, but as soon as the vibration and buzzing comes on (every 29 seconds), they run away. They haven't been in my trash since! GREAT VALUE!!! Also, it is loud enough for the animals, but not loud enough for people enjoying the deck/backyard to really hear it. We only notice it if we are TRYING to hear it and, even then, we have to be right next to it (to make sure the batteries are still fresh).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by adamls Good concept --- doesn't work
I placed this in the ground according to the instructions to scare away gophers. Amazingly, a new gopher hole appeared not more then three feet away from this gizmo! FAIL.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Railray Works great
This not only got rid of moles in our yard, but also in the neighbors and the neighbors 2 doors away.
Beware of imitators that don't work. Exhart works!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MaybeTheRodenatorWorks Doesn't work as advertised
Moles are hardy creatures that you either need to eradicate or leave alone and enjoy the destruction of your yard.
I purchased two (2) of the Gopher and Molemover in the hopes that the current inhabitant(s) of my yard would move on. Reading the instructions (they do say to expect increased activity for 2-3 weeks after installing the device) I was prepared for the increased activity. Now that four (4) weeks have passed and the little critter(s?) are still very much active I to say that the devices do not work as advertised.
In addition, I have a very small yard (maybe 30'x30') and planted the two devices on the corners of the square opposite each other to provide the most coverage. The moles are making a mockery of the "mole mover" by creating mountains out of their molehills. The device looks neat, the LED lights up and it makes a noise - all as advertised. The problem is that it doesn't get rid of the moles.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by geezer Don't Work, don't last!
I bought one of these and it didn't do the job and only lasted two months. No results at all. The pinwheel windmills are as effective if not better. They are a lot cheaper too. Maybe if it had lasted longer it would have got a little results. I will not waste more money to find out.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by icecream Good when it works, battery problem and fail after 4 months..
We are on a hillside, where there are a lot of open space, and soft and dry soil. No matter when and what type of grass we put on our lawn. The gophers will find its way to destroy it. I used a lot of those smoke and kill and other solution we found at HD. Not much use.
Four months ago, we decided to try do re-pave the front lawn we new grass again. Since it is a smaller area, we hope we can use this "stick" to set a "control" area, by putting them at 4 corners and 1 in the middle. So, we definitily overlap some area.
I am not sure if it is the product or our luck. I don't see any gopher marks at the front lawn. I was quite pleased. However, one afternoon, I walked to the side and found that there are gopher holes on the edges and some parts of the lawn was destroy.
I looked at the "stick", and it is not functioning anymore. I couldn't hear any sound/beep within 5 or 10 mins. I checked the rest of the "sticks". 4 out of 5 are not working. I thought it was battery, and quickly put in new ones in. it doesn't make any sound anymore.
I looked inside the tube, and I don't see water mark, may be very little of rust inside of the tube. Other than that, no sign of wear and tear. The products just don't work anymore.
Considering the price and the durability, I would NOT recommend this product. If the manufacture cannot even make such a simple product that at least 2 years for the price. I strongly defer any customers away from it.
