how it works
all natural, non-toxic ingredients
Protect your lawn from moles, gophers, voles, armadillos and other burrowing animals with Sweeney's Mole and Gopher Repellant. The mole pellets contain a concentrated formula of 20% castor oil - twice the industry standard - to effectively drive pests from yards and gardens. Non-toxic and poison free, the repellent is safe to use around children and pets and will not harm grass and plants. After applying the repellent, water the product into the ground with a sprinkler to activate the granules. This makes the ground smell and taste unpleasant so the pests search for a more favorable environment in which to live. A cost-effective repellent, each 10 lb. bag provides 10,000 sq. ft. of coverage.
  • Effectively repels moles and gophers, voles, armadillos and other burrowing animals
  • Dual action, tunnel penetrating formula to better call out the features of the castor oil dual repellency (taste and smell) and the addition of lecithin as an emulsifier which helps castor oil penetrate into the mole tunnel, increasing efficacy
  • Tunnel penetrating formula - penetrates tunnel and contaminates moles underground food source
  • Provides 10,000 sq. ft. of coverage
  • Easy to apply instructions
  • All-natural ingredients, no poisons
  • Safe to use in gardens, on lawns or around children and pets
  • Convenient, re-sealable bag

Questions & Answers

HOW DOSE THIS PRODUCT WORK

I GOT MOLES IN MY NEW LAWN, WILL THIS GET RID OF THEM
Asked by: seabrat
poorly is how it works. I applied this several times as per instructions. The moles in CT seem to actually like it. I went as far as to put 1/3 a bag on a 10 x 10 area. The moles still travel thru this patch at will. I would put this product back on the shelf and invest the same $9 towards a sonic device. They work. I've tried the castor oil mixed with Dawn dish soap and they liked that too. I love my dog so heavy chemicals are not an option

Safe for Small Dogs?

Is this product safe to use in a yard with small dogs? Anyone had a problem? I have Yorkies that weigh 6-7 lbs. Sometimes they chew on grass, so I need to make sure this will not make them sick. Thanks.
Asked by: Laila
This product can confidently be used around people and pets. The active ingredient is castor oil which is watered deep into the ground during the application steps.

how do you apply the product to the lawn?
Asked by: Mike
I don't think the product is poison. It's more like your mother in laws cooking, smelly and bad tasting all though it didn't smell bad to me. The idea is to drive the gophers out of your yard not kill them. Decide what is the shortest direction to go. In your front yard start at your driveway, unless it's dirt our gravel, and sprinkle a 6-12" path along the edge of driveway and lightly apply water allowing it to soak in and not run off. Apply it again in 24 hours along side of the first application and water both areas again lightly to allow it to soak in. Keep this up until you have crossed the yard completely. This is for people with nice grass lawns. If you just have dirt then get out your garden hose and run water down the hole for 2-3 minutes then wait a day or so and if it is an active hole they will push up dirt and block it. When they do hit it with a hose again then when water recedes stick in a poison gas cartridge and cover hole. Light it first,lol. Follow the directions that come with the gas cartridge.

10 lb. Mole and Gopher Repellant is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 43.

I tried every organic solution and trap for years to get rid of the gophers that had destroyed my yard and took out some old growth trees but nothing lasted. The thumpers worked for about two feet in any direction and any of the old wives tales online were just that. I would not use poison because of the animals and the long term effects on my plants. I was beyond delighted to have found Sweeney's. I followed the directions to the letter because of my neighbors and wanting to drive them out of the yard. It was miraculous. By the fourth day I saw new tunnels all exiting my yard. Since the first week of my use I've only found one new tunnel and that one entered the yard and stopped. I love this product and have ordered another larger bag to make sure my yard stays gopher free. I've recommended it to all my friends with gopher problems and love that it is non-toxic and pet safe. Should definitely be carried on store shelves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product works This product works well if you follow the instructions. It needs to be reapplied every six to eight weeks. It is best if you can put it down before a good soaking rain. When we had a late snowstorm in the spring, I applied it before the snow fell so that it would soak in well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't kill the moles, but keeps them off the treated area! Traps didn't work for us, but this keeps the moles out of the area we've treated with this product.
Date published: 2014-11-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Persistent use will protect your lawn from moles. Mole problems are almost impossible to solve in some areas. The granular version of this product will work, but 3 - 4 week re-applications will be required on a 15 foot wide strip on the perimeter of your lot to keep the moles from returning. After 20 years of fighting moles on a lawn adjacent to a creek, this is the only solution, I have found, that works.

I caught this mole at vey early onset and contained it to about a 30 sq.ft section of my yard. I went through two bags of this overpriced garbage following the directions to the "T". This mole is not phased by this stuff in the slightest. I question anyone who claims this stuff actually worked. Save your money. Good luck on traps, stakes, anything. Crush the mounds and wait for sight and shoot the vermin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works but keep applying every 6 weeks We are on hillside and have a large beautiful lawn and gophers are a major problem. This product does repell and we spread it with spreader every 6 to 8 weeks and this will reduce the activity quite a lot. Home Depot has cheapest price and can get free delivery if you order 3 bags and can get within a week.

It slowed him down for a short time and he came back with a vengeance. All I did waist a lot of money and time. I also tried the liquid that you hook up to your hose. I went through (10) bottles and that also was a waist.
