Tunnel-Penetrating Formula Repels by Scent and Taste

Sweeney’s® Mole, Gopher, Vole & Armadillo Repellent is an all-natural granular formula made from castor oil, which effectively repels burrowing animals by scent and taste. Just sprinkle the dual-action repellent onto grass, and water in with a hose or sprinkler to activate the Ecogranules® sending castor oil deep into the ground. The repellent penetrates underground tunnels and burrows and creates an unpleasant odor and flavor that quickly drives away armadillos, gophers, moles and voles.

Just Sprinkle, and Water In

Apply the repellent in large bands one day at a time, beginning with the area closest to you, to drive the animals out. Sprinkle the granules generously on the ground with the convenient resealable shaker bag, then water in with a hose or sprinkler for about 20 minutes. Repeat the process over the course of several days until you treat the entire active area, each day applying the granules to a new band further out, and watering the new area as well as the areas treated in the days prior. For best results, reapply at the beginning of each season.

Not effective By Rick with gophers

Failing at repelling gophers too. They just blow past the per instruction applications. Waste of money try something else

Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Rick,

We are sorry to hear your experience did not reflect the high success rates typically associated with this product! For the best results, it is important to water in the granules for approximately 20 minutes immediately following application. This will quickly activate the product.

Didn't work on our Armadillos...... By Dede

We have a huge armadillo problem where we live in the Texas Hill Country. It has never been this bad. So, I was excited when a neighbor recommended this product. vs having my husband sit outside in the dark with a gun...I ordered the 10 lb bag and anxiously awaited its' arrival. We followed the directions and the following morning, it seemed as though they did more damage to our yard and flower beds than before use. So, I decided to take the remainder of the bag and apply it very thick all over the flower beds to test that method. I though it had worked, as they didn't come back for a couple of nights, but this morning the digging is worse than ever. I gave this the lowest rating of 1 because it did not work. Just a warning. Maybe it will work better for Moles and Gophers.

We apologize for this experience and appreciate the feedback.

This product is designed to be applied in stages over a four day period, watering it in each day, to slowly drive the animals away. An application over the entire area at once can cause the animals to dig wildly in any direction to escape the repellent.

Q.how much area will one bag cover

One 10 pound bag will cover up to 10,000 square feet.

Q.When the snow melted in 2016 my yard had many narrow tunnels presumably made by voles hiding under ivy or pachysandra. Is now (mid-Jan, 2017) a good time to use my HavaHart or the Sweeney product to prevent a reoccurrence following this winter?

When moles, gophers, voles, and armadillos are active, the product should be applied in a band, then watered in for 20 minutes. Each day, a new band should be added and the entire area watered until the active area is covered. Please keep in mind, we recommend waiting until the ground is no longer frozen before starting applications as it will not be effective in colder temperatures.

Q.will this harm dogs

This product should be watered properly to ensure that it is soaked into the ground to spoil the moles' food source. It is poison-free and can be used confidently around dogs.
