Product Description

Batteries not required. Even on a cloudy winter's day, the solar panel will store enough power in the battery to run the unit throughout the night. What size area does it cover? This depends on the type of ground you've got. Chalky ground transmits noise more effectively than sand, for example. We expect it to cover up to a 20 metres (65ft) radius around the mole repeller (13,273 sq feet) (1200 sq metres). Why choose the "Advanced" Mole repeller? The Advanced Solar mole repeller has high-spec solar panels and an aluminum pole. The aluminum poles give more durability and makes it easier to insert in the soil. More importantly, aluminium is a better conductor of the repelling vibrations. The advanced solar mole repeller also comes with a longer pole (38cm) than most mole repellers, so it can be pushed deeper into the ground. Moles usually burrow low below ground level so with a longer pole, you can get the device into the ground further. This means it is more effective in removing moles from your garden. Unlike many Mole repellers this unit comes pre-charged, please allow at least 30 days in the soil for the unit to do its work. When the device is working, you'll hear a bleeping sound every 30 seconds or so - this is not the noise the moles hear, it's so you can be sure the device is working. Where do I position the device? The units should not be inserted amongst the moles or they will scatter in all directions. It should be used in the same way as a sheepdog "herds" sheep - to guide the moles in the desired direction slowly "following" them with the unit as they move away from it. You may find that in the early stages, molehills appear more frequently and even close to the unit. This indicates that it is beginning to have an effect and the moles are becoming disorientated so do not panic!! 12cm diameter by approx. 44cm long

We'd tried everything humane nothing worked we just had moles hills year after year. We bought 2 of these solar mole repellers and within days the moles had gone and 2 months on their still gone, They do emit a slight buzz which doesn't seem to bother the dog. They do need to be in a sunny spot to keep charged, several times when we've had several consecutive cloudy days they have run out of charge during the night.

This worked a treat all last summer, as the molehills that started appearing in the border near to my lawn have disappeared. You MUST read the instructions properly and place the device in between the existing molehills and the area you want to protect, not in amongst the molehills themselves. I placed mine in the lawn itself, a few feet from the edge where the molehills were. The only concern I have is that the device appears to have stopped working, but this might be because it's winter and it's not receiving enough light to power itself. Time will tell...

UPDATE August 2011: The vibrating component has definately packed up, although the LED light still comes on at night so the solar cells are still OK. Not sure if I'd buy another...maybe.

well .... six weeks on and not sign of mr mole tearing up the lawn, so hopefully this thing is doing what it says on the tin, and no moles were harmed in the process(well maybe he was slightly annoyed)only one problem - i think the neighbour might need one of these devices now! (sorry!)

The problem seems to be that the solar panel is not large enough to keep the device working. I have found that you have to place them in full sun, then they work for 24 - 36 hours. After this you need to disconnect the head and allow it to recharge for at least 24 hours before reconnecting. Quite a bind, and you need several so that you can alternate them with others that are recharging. So I cannot tell whether or not they would be effective if they were going all the time.
I have made a number of inquiries and all these devices seem to have the same size solar panel. Perhaps those people that find they work live in sunny places???

These units are rubbish. I've got mole hills directly next to the where the unit is situated, its almost funny.

For some reason the batteries seem to re-charge using the solar panel for a couple of months and then they're DEAD. I haven't tried to charge them from the mains, so maybe this is what I need to do, but frankly should I be having to do this.

The glass around the solar panels also seem to leak into the spike which is sunk into the ground and once you've water sitting in the bottom of the spike then of course the connections which emit the noise then become corroded and don't work.

I've had other makes which seem to work fine, so either I've a bad batch or these are just rubbish !!

Since I put the mole scarer in the garden I have had no more mole hills there. They have not gone far - into the neighbouring field.

Previously I relied on the tunnel traps which are a little inhumane and only come into use once the moles are established with the ensuing mini mountains. Thought I would try a more friendly approach to the problem by scaring them off and keeping them off. After a few days there are no new molehills so the two repellants I purchased seem to be working and are enough to cover my fairly large garden. But where have the pesky critters gone? Well it appears that they have sought sanctuary in the adjacent fields which does not bother the sheep nor the farmer , but had my garden been next to a domestic plot then I think that it would be rather antisocial to chase the little menaces into a neighbor's garden.
Perhaps I'm stating the obvious, but make sure to place them in a sunny spot for maximum effect.

Difficult to know how well they worked, - sure they buzzed periodically when charged up. I think they did do the trick as we had no new mole burrows when operating - but, since they both failed some time ago, we still haven't had any... One failed within a year, the other maybe 2-3 months later. They probably did work but construction was lacking and water ingress into the buzzer eventually causes them to fail. The buzzing in a quiet garden is noticeable but not a problem. Need to be in direct sunlight to work, so not suitable for hiding in foliage!
