Solar Gopher & Mole Mover
No Results and Misrepresented Product
I have several beefs with this product. First and foremost, it doesn't appear to work AT ALL. I've had two in the ground for 5 or 6 weeks now and no improvement in the mole activity. They even created a mound right below the device and pushed the Mole Mover out of the ground. Not exactly "running for their lives" as advertised. Second, the product description states it covers an area up to 3500 sq ft. So I purchased 2, one for the front, 1 for the back yard. Then when you read the directions in the box, it recommends one placed every 30 feet for best results. Also states you MAY see an increase in activity since moles are very territorial. Not much confidence given there. I took the front yard one and placed it 30 feet from the one in the back and still the activity has been furious with giant mounds reappearing daily. My last complaint is that this product makes a really annoying chirping noise every 28 seconds. I thought once in the ground it would be muted and/or not heard by us. NOT the case. Mine are placed about 12 feet behind our main patio and we can hear them going any time there's no music playing. Drives us nuts. Moles are not even slightly bothered.

Looks like it is working, but I haven't had it working for two weeks yet. Also, I need more than two to make it work.

Save Your Money
I have had this product in the ground working, for one month and have had new vole mounds three feet from this product I flatten them and they reappear. I know they are vole because I have seen them and have managed to kill two.
I'm beginning to believe it attracts them.

I have had this item for short time now, maybe not long enough to know if it is actually working. There are no new gopher borrows and the product is still working.

Definitely would recommend this
We have tried numerous sprays, pellets, traps, etc to get rid of the moles and voles in our yard and nothing has worked except for this. We bought two of these (one for frontyard and one for backyard) and since we put these out, we have not seen any moles or voles in our yard. We would definitely recommend this product.

No more moles!
We have tried so many ways to rid our yard of moles. This is the first product that does the trick. I am thrilled!!

This product seems to do the job. However, I find that you need more than one to keep the critters away.
I did see my first squirrel this morning running through our gazebo. It has been two weeks since the last one. I hope they aren't getting used to the chatter!

Hope it works
I'm sure this product works for moles, but I am also hoping that it will deter mice from getting into our cars. It does continue to beep at regular intervals and holds its charge through the night.
