Takeaway: Fingers crossed this will repel mice and groundhogs.

I’ll be putting these in my raised garden bed because we had mice in here that ravaged our plants last spring/summer, and we want to make sure they stay out. Since it's early in the season, it's impossible to say whether these are ""effective"" yet, but so far (2 weeks), I haven't seen any burrows in the bed, so hopefully it stays that way. I'll have to come back and report on its true performance in the fall or if it fails before then.

In one order, you’ll receive two solar panel units, two aluminum spikes, and an instruction sheet. The diameter of the solar panel head is about 6” in diameter and coming out of the bottom is a pair of wires with a plastic connector. Inside the 13"" aluminum spike, is the other end of the connector. When you attach them, you’ll hear the unit buzz for a few seconds. This is the sonic vibration that it will send through the ground about every 30 seconds to supposedly deter burrowing creatures in your yard. Tuck the wires into the tube and press it into the plastic solar panel unit. It’ll look like a giant pushpin and measures about 15” from tip to top. The metal of the spike is a hardened aluminum rust-proof aluminum. However, the tip and solar panel unit are made of a lightweight plastic. The only maintenance for this is to occasionally wipe down the solar panel if it gets dirty and bring these in for the winter if you experience hard freezes in your area.

Although the instructions say these have a range of 50 feet, I put both of them in one raised bed as a safety in case one unit fails. When installing in the ground, make sure not to press too hard on the top as the plastic may crack or break. You’re supposed to put these down as deep as you can (buries until within an inch of the soil level). My bed has landscape fabric beneath it, so I planted these as deep as they could reach without breaching the fabric. You can hear the buzzing as these vibrate, so hopefully we won’t have the mice (or groundhog!) problem this year. If the villains do come back or the units fail, I’ll come back and update this review for sure.
