Used 3 of these last year in a small area of infestation. I think they had the same effect as a vibrating mattress in a cheap motel. I think the moles went into a breeding frenzy. I am now thinking thermo-nuclear devise or WMD.

Solar Molar . . . Waste of money
I bought 4 of these to cover a very small area of my back yard. They were place approximately 35 feet apart. They do absolutely NOTHING to help. Same holes, same problem. Do NOT waste your money!!

I found the product to work but was disappionted that it didn't hold up better.
I purchased six of them in the spring i think maybe two are still working. They also didn't cover near the area that they said it would. 20ft from the working chaser is a lot of rodent activity. Also it had no affect on ground squirrels.

I used 3 of these to cover 5,000 sq. ft. and they seemed to work for a couple of weeks. When moles came back I moved the moler into the new tunnels and they just pushed dirt up around the stake. Now I am "chasing" them around the yard, placing all three molers around the new mounds, then waiting to see where they will come up next. All 3 are making the noise but it doesn't bother the moles anymore. Save your money for poison.

Darn close to useless...moles use the beeping to find their way home. Buy an owl for your yard or feed the neighbor's cat for a few days and the moles will go somewhere else.

i was a bit skeptical at first, but after about 2 weeks, i didn't have any gopher, mole hills in my yard, it's been a couple of months now, and still no gophers,mole hills. I have a little over an acre of property, and 4 of these is did the trick.

2 out of 2 don't function
I bought two of these and neither work. The first one I installed at my parents house and it didn't work from the start unless you had the top solar panel disc off the rod and upside down. ??? Now it seems to be working, but I don't trust it will or does continuously. The second one functioned initially for about 8 months, but has since stopped. Maybe the rechargeable battery is done, but who knows. I'm too frustrated with these to even investigate at this point. Oh, and there was no impact on the gophers from what I can tell. Still in the same places making the same holes. I guess I'll have to get a dog.

I've had trouble with moles for years. Itried baits and traps and all sorts of home remedies, with no sucess. Last Fall, I put in a solarmoler in my front yard and could not have been happier this spring when the snow melted and I had absoulutely no sign of any moles. Typically the ground is covered with trails from their winter "manuevers" , but not this spring!!!! I can start my yard work with half the battle won.

Solar Moler Does Not Work!
I purchased six of these, in an all-out effort to rid my yard of moles. I placed them exactly as directed (even closer together than "necessary"), and while they do vibrate, they simply don't have any impact on the moles! The moles laugh at them!

Works Like a Champ
We have two units, one in the front yard and the other in the back yard - they cover all of the 100-foot width of our property and part of the neighbors, too. Great product, works well in both moist and porous soils here on Camano Island, WA where soil varies from dense, moisture retentive to porous, rapid percolating. It banished the invasive moles that used to plague us.
