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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LondonEye Great product!
We tried all kinds of products before I found Sweeney's Mole and Gopher Solar Powered Sonic Spike. Upon installing the spike, we received almost instant results. I saw a gopher in my back yard the night before we purchased the spike. The next morning, i inserted the spike and we have not seen any more pests. Thank you for carrying this product. I have told all my friend about this wonder product.

I bought 2 a year ago. It does get rid of them. It takes several weeks. But, they do get water in them not weather proof which they should be since they are used outdoors. Needless to say they no longer work had to throw them away. So I guess pull them out of ground every time it rains? If they would seal them better so they wouldn't retain water would be better. I may buy 2 more because they do work and I will try to remember to pull them up when it rains.

This is one of a kind product! I'm a landscaper and if you want a product that keeps customers coming back year after year. This is what you should be buying for your lawn. I find, if you drip hot wax around the edges of the product and then use superglue to seal. It seals the product for 100% water proofing and it even works under water.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Spunkae Worked well until it broke
This device kept the gophers away for 15 months until it stopped functioning - and the gophers quickly returned. It worked well enough for me to purchase it again though I am disappointed at the short life span.
This product contained two devices. I used one and loaned one to a neighbor. The one I used stopped working. The one I loaned to the neighbor sat idle for a year before the loan. I have no data on its longevity.

Have been using the product for over a week now with no visible results. I say that I wasted my money.

We had active moles or gophers in our young orchard. They had already eaten the roots of one of my trees and there were active mounds in the area. My husband wanted to get poison but I have animals on the property and didn't want to risk accidental poisoning. I installed the spike and haven't seen any active mounds since. I am using this in conjunction with gopher baskets on the roots of my young trees and the combination seems to be working well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by zookeeper Works but doesn't last long
These things do really seem to keep moles out of my yard. I was getting moles every year just about and since I put these in strategic places in my yard I only had 1 mole in a couple years. My major complaint with these things are they only last about 10-12 months of actual use not counting when they are out of the ground during the winter. I had 2 with the same issue. After only about 10 months of use the top clear plastic plate where the solar panel is cracked bad enough where the sonic sound stopped working and then floods with water.
Talked with customer service at sweeney and was told I should get at least 3 years or more of use out of these before anything goes bad. Like always when a product seems to be prone to a specific issue being I had 2 do the same thing, they said they never heard of this problem and no one else is having this problem, yeah yeah, sure.
Of course they break right around the time the 1 year warranty is about to expire and they won't do anything for you unless you have a receipt to prove it's 10 months old.
Even though they do work it's a low quality product that lasts just long enough so they don't have to replace the thing or they expect most people don't don't keep receipts for $15 purchases. So don't buy these things unless you plan on buying new ones every year.
