We have installed these spikes in two homes and they have worked great. The first set was 5 years ago and they are battery operated. That house is now a rental and we still haven't had a repeat of the mole in the yard.
We bought these a couple of months ago because we had a vole in the front planter. He tunneled into the back yard, but haven't seen any sign of him since we put these solar spike in the yard. They do make an audible electronic sounding beep. We used 4 spikes for our half acre.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Don Skeptical, but worked for me!
I was having issues with moles in my mulch and lawn. Tried chemicals and traps but they wouldn't stop. Picked up a few of these about 2 weeks ago and placed them around my yard. I was happy to see that after a few days no new tunnels popped up and it appears the moles moved on.
I have heavy clay and the instructions indicate clay and other heavy soil will net the best results.
They do feel a little flimsy so I was cautious pushing them in the ground. Also, you can hear the tone. While brief, it's definitely annoying when you're trying to enjoy some R&R. You can power them off though in that case. Definitely recommend.

Who has a stake handy to punch a hole in the ground? I didn't. So I dug a hole of sufficient depth to accept this device in the general vicinity of the gopher trails two weeks ago. All that I see happening is the digging is going in a different direction away from the device but still in my yard. I have confirmed it is still making the noise but my gopher apparently couldn't care less.
Now I'm back at ground zero to figure out how to get rid of the gopher. Back to YouTube I guess.

Saw the prior reviews and gambled on the first one. These aren't magic, but seem to irritate the moles enough to get them to dig elsewhere, usually. So I ordered a second one and will probably order a couple more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnHenry The only thing that has ever worked. No muss, no fuss. Set it and forget it.
Use a stake to poke a hole in the ground because the plastic stake it comes with is a little flimsy. But even with this extra step, I still only spent about 90 seconds installing one. This made my yard safe to walk in again. The moles had gotten so bad I thought I was going to fall through to China.

I've got nasty gopher problems in my yard. I've got 2 dogs and I wanted to try something that didn't involve poison. I tried this and it hasn't discouraged the gophers at all.

I am 66 years old. In all my years as a consumer of all things on the market from cars to nails, this is the worst product I have ever purchased. It does the opposite of repelling. The moles come within inches of the spike, listen to the beeps , plan their attack and commence to destroy my lawn. I complained to the company. They sent some castor oil granulars which was just as useless.
