Sonic Pulses Penetrate the Soil to Drive Moles and Gophers Away

Apply Sweeney’s® Solar Powered Sonic Spikes™ for low-maintenance, season-long protection against moles and gophers. When placed into the ground and activated, these waterproof spikes use the sun’s energy to emit high-pitched ultrasonic sound waves that only moles and rodents can hear. The shrill noise travels underground, irritating these burrowing critters and effectively driving them away.

Sweeney’s® Sonic Spikes™ work best in moist soil or clay.

Easy to Install and Low-Maintenance

Sweeney’s@ Solar Powered Sonic Spikes™ each have a solar panel, which eliminates the need to install or replace batteries. Simply dig a starter hole, then gently press the spike into the ground. Insert it until the bottom of the spike head begins to touch the ground in order to prevent tripping or running over it with a lawnmower. Slide the switch to “ON” to activate. The spikes must be used continuously for 7-14 days before successfully driving rodents out of the area. Remove spikes before ground freezes.

One Solar Powered Sonic Spike™ protects up to 7,500 sq ft

Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Hank,

We apologize for this experience and are happy to help.

The battery in the solar-powered spike may need to be charged up in the sunshine before the unit will start working.  We recommend allowing 3-5 days to gain a full starting charge.

Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for additional assistance.

Batteries? By anonymous
The unit S9014 should have accessability to batteries. Especially if it is overcast for most of the month as would occur in winter in the upper mid west. The ability to recharge the Ni-MH batteries is a most.. Would like a refund.

not so great By baileykat
Got it for moles. They love it. Built a tunnel fight next to it.
Response From Havahart®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
Victor® has a long history of producing high-quality and reliable products. We apologize for this experience and would be happy to provide assistance.

Results should be seen after 7-14 days of continuous use. Initially, moles may burrow closer to investigate the source of annoyance. When they learn that they can not make it disappear, they will start to move out.

Don\'t waste your money By Kim S
We had agressive gophers in our lawn, and these spikes did absolutely nothing. In fact, shortly after installing them, we found that the GOPHERS had obviously made attempts at uprooting the spike!
Response From Havahart®
Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
Gophers often dig up to the spikes when they are first installed to investigate the source of the disturbance. A decrease in activity should be seen within 7-14 days.

Patience pays off - they\'re gone By Bobws56
Not sure what critter(s) we had, but these stakes seem to have worked. My rodent friends may have been prairie dogs (we live in the SF Bay Area). It has been about two weeks since I placed two stakes in my yard and I have not seen any evidence of the critters in the last four days. Prior to this, the drain covers in our lawn drainage system were popped off nearly every night. The system provided a ready-made burrow and tunnel system for the little guys. There were areas in the yard that were dug up where the rodents were digging for grubs. My 3-pronged attack included two sonic stakes, repellent and traps.

I placed spring traps in the drain holes, but to no avail. I also spread gopher and mole repellent on the lawn to discourage the pests. I do believe this helped. I was losing patience with the sonic stakes and was going to resort to poisoned bait. Fortunately, the stakes seemed to have worked. It did take a full two weeks. The drain covers have stayed in place and there has been no damage in the yard for five days now. Success!!

Great product! By LondonEye
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.

Moles have come within 8" of units and make return trips. It has been over 3 weeks use now. Moles are not in least bit bothered by "sonic" sound. Use your money for another method.

They\'re Gone By
Critters arrived about three months ago and were very quickly destroying my 1/2 acre yard. Neighbors had tried a variety of traps in their yards with little success so my offer was to try the Sonic Spike. I was somewhat hesitant. But three days after installing the two spikes my moles had all but vanished. The sound which is slightly audible must really irritate them because I found one crawling on top of the ground. Question is where do they go?

This thing still works all year long 3 years after I put it out on my flower bed. It even survives being covered with snow for a few days.

The fact that you don't need to fuss with batteries makes this product very economical and a time saver. Although it takes 7 to 14 days to work, they will ultimately do the job moving the molls. I have used a number of different moll repellent products and this one I like the most.

Q.Do the sonic spikes also repel voles?

These are designed to repel moles and gophers and have not been tested on voles.

Q.Does the solar powered mole repellent negatively impact cats?

This spike emits a sound that penetrates the soil which is irritating to moles and gophers. Any sound audible above ground would be muffled and should not bother a cat.

Q.My yard is large .75 acres.  I'm worried the spikes will just chase them to another part of it. Should I buy 2 and position them so to push the moles off the property?

Multiple spikes may be needed to ensure the moles or gophers do not move to an unprotected area of the yard.
