I just installed 2 of these in my vegetable garden last weekend to try to get rid of moles getting into my raised beds and hothouse. Even without being in the sun, they started working right away making a little high-pitched bzzzzt, every 30 seconds or so. I have one repeller that requires 4 D batteries and frequent replacement. So the solar-powered units are much more efficient and environmentally friendly. So far I've noticed that in the area where I've put the two repellers, no new mole hills appeared. I'd previously tried a castor oil spray to move them out. Between the mess of spraying a liquid, the frequency I was having to spray, the cost at $40+ a gallon, and the rather limited success I was having, these solar repellers are MUCH better. While I'm not sure the advertised 6000 sq. ft. coverage is accurate, I think they work well enough to have bought additional units to "herd" the family of moles out into the adjacent field.
After putting 2 of these in my lawn, I never saw so many squirrels and chipmunks come running to hang out by these great lawn ornaments. These are great critter attractors. However the packaging states they are to repel critters, ahh, no.
We were losing tomatoes to every night to a mole we just couldn't trap. Since putting up the solor rodent repellent stick we haven't lost a single one. We are well pleased.
I've been overrun with moles and voles. They've been destroying my gardens and other areas for the past two years. I bought one of these to test out and see if it works. So far it has worked as advertised and I am very happy. The solar power is just great, no worries of running out of batteries or having to plug anything in. I will definitely be getting some more of these for other areas of my property. Highly recommend this product!
I used this now for about 2 month, did not see any new molehill after 2 weeks. I put 2 about 60 feet apart, the sound from this unit work alot better than the one I bought at anothe retailer. So far look like it working very good for my yard.
It did not cover the 6000 sq feet. We inserted it and it worked for a small area, maybe 10 ft, and the mole came back and stayed on the other side of the yard, only 20 ft away. I was not impressed with this product and would not recommend it if you're looking for a bigger area to cover.
The Sunforce Solar-Powered Garden Rodent Repellers did a wonderful job of annoying me with it's high pitch sounds, but the squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks and birds just walked within inches of it. I even put mine on top of the the trash can. The squirrel then jumped over on top of the garbage can repeatedly and started eating the trash can. I sure hope I can post photo's of this. Don't waste your money on this product. I'm taking both of mine back. Clearly they don't work.
Within 2 days we no longer had any gophers in our yard!
I really am satisfied with the product so far. I read the instructions and was not satisfied that it cannot be used during the winter months. I didn't think about the plastic freezing or the ground freezing. My mistake, I still will have to get a product like this that can stay out during the winter as I live next door to a dirty 7-11 and they draw rats. My dog use to act crazy around the yard at night but so far its been quiet.
Will give 1 more week to work or I am returning for refund
DO NOT BUY THESE! They kind of worked when I first got them but they BOTH died after 2 months! Waste of money :(
not buried all the way. will bury more as directed and see if humming sound stops. Hopefully will work to keep rodents away.
I've had the product for a few weeks now to repel a particular rabbit that's been eating my plants. I know the product does not mention rabbits but figured I'd give it a try.It seems to be working, I have it next to the plant that's been affected. Being that I have the same plant on the other side of my landscape the "clever" rabbit went on the other side so i will purchase another one or two! I do recommend this product but definitely more than one because it does NOT cover the 6000 sq as stated on the details/specifications.
The rattle that is to repel the moles is so quiet that you can hardly hear it and it comes on only about once an hour. It doesn't work right.
Please contact the technical support department at Sunforce to troubleshoot the product. The two functions of the products, vibrating and beeping, should occur more frequently, within seconds. There could be an issue with the rechargeable battery. Please get in touch with us for assistance.
I purchased 6 units and all worked well for two weeks. By the end of four weeks only two
are still working. I would return them if I could. Is it impossible for any solar products to
work longer than they advertise.
Bought this almost 2 month's ago. So far it's working great. No mole's, chipmunk's, or rabbit's. Doesn't seem to be bothering our pet's. Humming not a problem because our house is heavily insulated.
I bought 4 Sunforce Solar-Powered Garden Rodent Repellers. All four failed. Two died in three weeks the other two died soon after that. I returned them to a local store for refund. I am currently trying a differnt brand.
Did not work do not buy this.
Difficult to tell if these are working. I hope the critters will not enjoy the company.la8er
So far it's working but, sound is so low can't tell if it is really working ? My older one is working louder than this one and it only cost $14.95 and I had this one for more than 4mos. I think I will be returning it very soon if does not work well.
