Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MSR Didn't work for us
The product said to give it 2 weeks to work, and by the second week, the voles were dancing around the spikes, didn't bother them or repel them at all.

Works really well. Have several on just over an acre lot.

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.

I purchased two gopher spikes. Neither one of them worked. I'm not talking about effectiveness against gophers. They never actually beeped/vibrated, the products were defective. I will return them and not buy this product again.

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.

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.
