Zikke Sonic Mole Repellent Review

My dad’s an avid gardener, and it seems that every year, there is some type of varmint that thinks my dad’s vegetables and tomatoes are theirs for the taking. The same event occurred this year in 2017.

The bottom of the beet roots disappeared and the culprit was a garden plot full of voles.

He knew that I ran this site and asked me if I had any ideas on how we could tackle this challenge. I decided to do some research and found the Zikke Professional Solar Mole Repellent Device that also works for vole, snake, gopher, shrew and other pests that can be a problem in the garden.

My dad told me that the beets were a lost cause but that he was curious about this device and asked me to pick a few up and we would see how they worked.

Effectiveness

The effectiveness of this solar powered mole repeller is quite high according to many of the reviews that I have already read. It works by sending out sounds and vibrations and that creates a danger signal to pests such as rodents. These vibrations occur every few minutes and let rodents know that they should stay away from the area.

6000 feet of coverage is protected by this professional mole repeller. It’s perfect for getting rid of burrowing animals.

Easy Installation

This sonic pest repellent device was very easy to install. We opened the boxes and dug some small holes and stuck them in the ground. Our package came with two separate units so that we could space them out in separate areas of the garden. After putting them into the ground, it was as simple as flipping on and on off switch to see what they would do.

These run off the power of the sun. That saves you on battery and electricity costs. It’s nice using a device that doesn’t require continued refills or batteries.

Excellent Results

It only took a few days for the voles to completely disappear from the area. It’s too bad that we didn’t know about this device before the voles got ahold of my dad’s beets. There’s always next year and the year after that. In the future, we are prepared for any type of underground animal that tries to sneak away with the goods.

Harmless and Humane

The great thing about this repellent is that it does not hurt any type of animal when it is being used. We really didn’t want to have to set any traps or use chemicals to take care of this pest problem. No harm was done to any voles or my dad’s two dogs and 12 cats — yes, they have that many as they live on a farm.

Positive Recommendation

I would definitely say that these are worth buying as a sonic repellent for snake, gopher, shrew, vole or mole problems. Also, it’s really nice that you can send these back within a 30 day period if time if you are not 100 percent satisfied with how they work. I’m sure you will be after trying them, and I hope this review was helpful for making a decision.

Mole Repellent Review – Repellex Root-Saver

mole-repellent.jpgBurrowing animals such as Moles, Voles, and Gophers, are notorious for destroying the root systems of landscaping shrubs, flower beds, and vegetable gardens. It’s natural for moles to create two types of tunnels. The first, are feeding tunnels. These run just below the surface, and appear as raised ridges above ground. The second type of tunnel is dug deeper, and unites the feeding tunnels. It also creates molehills, and is often the signal that you have a pest problem. We found a few people this summer who had this challenge, and asked them if we could review the results after applying a mole repellent to their inflicted areas.

For our tests, we used “Root-Saver” mole repellent from Repellex.com. Repellex Root-Saver is a deterrent available in granular bags, and a ready-to-use 100% organic liquid form. Root-Saver targets moles, voles, and gophers, but also states it’s, “ideal for skunks, field mice, woodchucks, and other burrowing animals”… even armadillos.

Active ingredients are used to dis-flavor food sources, and create an uncomfortable environment. The liquid form includes Castor Oil, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, and Potassium Sorbate. Paprika and water are listed as inert ingredients. Granular Root-Saver combines Garlic Oil, Castor Oil, Paprika, and Wintergreen Oil. The included emulsifying agents allow the mole repellent to penetrate through the soil, which allows a pest-free environment for up to 90 days. Our tests were conducted in an iris garden, a vegetable garden, and the lawn of a backyard.

Gordon tried the granular version on his back lawn. “I’ve had moles in the backyard, ever since we moved into this place two years ago. They’ll leave molehills, which become a nuisance when mowing. I already had a spreader I’ve used for fertilizer. The bag had easy-to-use instructions, and even included directions for specific spreaders.

After a week of spreading the repellent, I actually noticed an increase of molehills. I’d read that this could be expected, because of increased activity. After about three weeks, the hills were about gone when mowing. We have a field behind us, and they moved there.”

Janet used Root-Saver on her iris garden. “Last year I lost a few iris to moles. They ran a path straight through the North corner. When it was announced at Garden Club that Mike (editor of allrepellents.com), would provide mole repellents to any member with pest problems, I grabbed a bottle.

repellex-root-saver-repellent.jpgThere was activity just outside the garden, and I was worried the moles would move in. The bottle easily hooked up to a garden hose for spraying. I probably used only 1/3 of the bottle. I sprayed the iris, and surrounding area as suggested. The activity moved behind the fenceline. I’ll use Root-Saver again next year, even if I don’t see activity.”

Similar results were seen when sprayed around a vegetable garden. Mole activity moved.

Our reviewers were all happy with the Root-Saver Mole, Vole and Gopher Repellent. Root-Saver is available online.
