Solar Mole Repeller
Bought this to get rid of gopher in our front yard. Didn't notice any sound or vibration coming from it. Did NOT get rid of the gopher. He is still munching on our grass roots just fine.

Works as advertised
When we returned home in Northern MI & the snow melted in my garden, there were mole runs all over the garden & as time went on, I noticed almost all my tulip bulbs were gone. We bought one of these solar mole repellers before & it worked fine, but after a few years it broke & we didn't replace it. When I saw the garden, I ordered one right away & again it is working very well keeping the moles or voles or whatever they are away.

they do not work drive keep moles away. they are very noisy
To get the moles out of my flowers and strawberries. They emit a loud buzzing sound that doesn't appear to bother the moles at all.They have made runs right along side of the device. Not worth the price or time.

mole repeller
didn't work to stop the moles

Worked & lasted over 3 yeras
Purchased three for a fairly large yard, after spending over $500 to get rid of moles and voles with pest exterminator. Worked way better that the exterminator for 1/10th the cost. Moles were gone and never returned. One quit working during its third year. Others worked over 4 years. Great low cost solution! I did clean the solar panel about twice a year to remove dust and rain spots.

some worked and some did not
I ordered six and they were working find for about a month than 3 had to be replaced. Now on 2 are working. The moles stayed away most of the summer but I had a mole go under the pool right next to one of the repeller and put a hole in the new liner. what is the life span of these and why do the have to be replaced so often if they are solar. I think the battery ones were way better.

Stopped working
We set them up and they started right up and were beeping and vibrating. After a few days they all stopped and they have hadno effect on gophers.
Sep 12, 2015
I just sent them back.
tried 2 of them-neither one would function. The pieces would not stay together, when removed from the ground.
Sep 12, 2015
Thought Bell&Howell would be good product....Wrong!
Bought 2 and had to send back for replacements due to 1 didn't work (make sonic pulse) except 1/2 day and the other quit after couple of days. Thought I would give them another try. Always followed package directions for set-up, pre-charged batteries, etc. as it stated. The replacements each worked 1/2 day at the most. Waste of money and effort.
Aug 23, 2015
Purchased two...I don't notice any sounds or effects.
For garden....I bought another type about 5 yrs ago that ran on four batteries. it was much better.

Works Great. No moles in my garden.
The design needs work. Does not fit tight together and it wiggles. Does not stand up straight.

Solar Mole Repeller
This product seemed to do some help in keeping that pesky mole from my yard. Problem being they no longer work. Placed in my front and back yards and they became wet from sprinklers and stopped the noise. Took apart and dried them but one doesn't work at all and the other only emits a weak sound when it's in the mood. Wouldn't recommend this product and guess the only way is bye, bye mole! Hope to send you to mole heaven!

I would not buy this product again
A Bell & Howell should work better than this. Not a good buy.

Bought 2, 1 broken & inop on delivery, no receipt to return
Bought 2 units,both hard to get operating,(connections very temperamental) one never did, and while trying, the photo lens fell out and broke on the floor, receipt already gone,, to bad to me I guess...The one that works makes a buzzing sound at intervals, have had a week or so but don't know how effective it is yet,,,if at all...........

So far, so good !
I bought two of these and one had a broken wire. I was able to repair it by melting the wire covering and twisting the bare wire ends together and applying electrical tape to secure it. They charged quickly and work well, are a little noisy but if they do the trick, I won't mind. Won't really know until the end of the season.

Mole Repeller
Worked great for the first 4-5 days but they soon learned to ignore the sound/sonic waves. Continued to dig holes in yard.

Audible Solar Repellant sounds like New
It may work? Definitely the solar power does- honks loudly like a New Years Day Blower! I don't know much else if it works, and I received one that was defective, and the other honks-

Moles Like the Music!!!!
Purchased two solar mole protectors. One worked fine and the other one is being replaced (free of charge). We are not sure but we actually think the moles like the sound of the apparatus. There are more tunnels than ever and it appears there are probably more moles than ever. They must have invited their friends from across the street because our neighbors who have used some 'smelly products' from Lowe's said their moles have disappeared. Our grandchildren, 3 and 4 years of age, love he rythmic sound of the Holy Molers and are convinced one of the moles is actually going to appear and do a jig or two. We are not sure if the Mole Repellers will actually do the job but after 10 days we love the attention from our neighbors, the excitement of our grandchildren, and the additional mole tunnels. Do they work? Will have to let you know later.

Is not working
Does not seem to be working. There are more holes around the stakes than there were before.

Doesn't Work!
This product does not work. Moles are digging tunnels around them as if they aren't even there. Waste of money! Surprised Bell & Howell promotes this product!

Not Working
I was praying for an answer to our mole problems and when I saw this in a book I was skeptical, but at this point was hoping for anything to help. I purchased two, one for the front yard and one for the back yard. I read the directions carefully and it seemed easy...set the solar housing outside in the sun for 2 days prior to using and then put parts together and stick in the ground. I still saw mole tunnels day after day but wanted to give it a fair try. Well, they have been there for almost 2 weeks and I even have moles coming right up to where the solar stakes are placed! The noise was not bothersome to us, and obviously, not to the moles:) I will return for a full refund.

bad news
this unit is none usable if you have pets in the area as the instructions stated when i got the product and read them.
Jul 26, 2013
This Product does not work!
This was a waste of money! It does not work and we still have a pest problem.
Jul 09, 2013
I would buy this product again
I ordered 4 but have to send one back due to a piece missing. The 3 that I kept have already resolved the mole problem.

Half right
My neighbor got two of these and was very pleased. Two other nieghbors got two each. One of the nieghbors and I have had one that does not work. I went into mine and it worked, battery issue maybe. The one neighbor got rid of her moles, I am waiting to see. The biggest issue seems to be around the battery. Not sure what to do about the one that is still not working. i guess for the price I would recommend it, but the jury is still out on that.

So far, it's keeping moles away from the garden corn I've planted. I prefer the solar power to having to periodically replacing batteries in similarly designed units.
May 28, 2013
Battery doesn't work!
One unit works fine while the other barely charges and needs a new battery after less than one week. These units must sit a very long time prior to sale and should be tested prior to shipping. I'll replace the battery and see if that works but would not buy this brand again.

keeping gophers & birds away
the best money I have ever spent for my garden keeps gophers, back birds and all other little creepy animals away. I will be purchasing another couple more for family and friends.
