Customer Questions & Answers

They work better and are larger than any I can buy locally.

Also, the "repellents" don't work - you want to eradicate them, not scare them into adjacent areas where they'll just come back or dig up your neighbors yard.
K. Chan
The gopher didn't seem bothered at all, often digging new holes/mounds right next to the gas bomb only hours later.

I have 4 acres that I spent a lot of money landscaping. Cat used to catch a lot of the moles, but he's getting fat and lazy like me. Tried poisons, but they're expensive and unreliable, and the dogs could end up getting to it. Also, the "repellents" don't work - you want to eradicate them, not scare them into adjacent areas where they'll just come back or dig up your neighbors yard. I used to buy these individually at the hardware store, but if you buy 100 at a time, you can get them for close to a buck apiece.

The trick to using them is in technique and vigilance. First, I take them all out of their packages and put the fuses in a plastic bag where they'll stay dry. It's easy to lose the fuses if you don't do this. Cut a piece of 1/2" garden hose about 18" long. Take the sticks and put them in a pail with a lid (an old paint can, powdered laundry detergent box, etc) along with your hose and a narrow hand shovel. Go to a mound, and probe for an opening with the shovel. The fresher the hole the easier. Once you find the opening, make sure it's free of dirt by pushing the hose down into the opening. Otherwise, it may be blocked partway down and the smoke won't get down into the burrow. Light the fuse, wait for the fuse to burn down a little, and shove it into the hole FUSE FIRST, covering it with dirt. You will be able to hear the stick burning even though it's covered.

Sometimes you won't be able to find the opening - in that case, just stomp down the dirt to compact it - put a little water on it if you have to - and the moles will push a new hole up overnight to breathe. Once you have things under control, it gets easier. Since moles are active at night, the best time to bomb them is first thing in the morning.

Who would have ever thought that catching or killing a ground hog would be so much trouble? My wife insisted that I trap him and take him somewhere else way out in the country. I purchased a cage and the first night I trapped our pet squirrel who will no longer let us feed him. The next two nights I trapped the ground hog and he was literally so strong that he bent the metal of the trap door and the wire cage and squeezed out of the trap. Twice!

OK, I purchased a bigger and better trap. Now the groundhog walks all around it and refuses to eat the gourmet meals I have put into the cage for him. Not only is he big and strong but he is also smart, wonderful! Now I feel like Bill Murray in Caddy Shack and the groundhog is winning. By this time he has eaten all of my wife's flowers, tulip bulbs and potted plants. Now it is time for war!

I can only find one entry hole in the front of our home in the shrubs so I find a large landscaping stone, then I tape two of the smoke bombs onto a stick and light the fuses and quickly jam them into the hole. Top it off with the large stone and cover it with some dirt and voila, no groundhog! Now I am making sure we don't have more of the dirt devils in our yard!

I used two of the smoke bombs as the hole was more than 8 inches in diameter and I wanted to make sure that the large volume quickly filled up with smoke.

This product was 100% effective in eliminating a serious mole problem in my yard. Poison peanuts, traps, insecticides, dogs, shovels, water, etc. had not done much. You must follow the directions and find the most recently used burrow,dig down a few inches to see the actual tunnel(as close as possible to where you think the nest is) and insert the GD with the fuse pointed toward the nest.

I've used a lot of products to eliminate voles and these seem to work the best. I've tried cheaper ones that did not produce enough gas and the little varmits actually dug them out and flipped them on top of the ground. Talk about a "Caddy Shack" experience!! The first time you use them you will be a bit surprised as it is like lighting a giant firecracker but after a few times you become quite proficient at it. I've learned to check for mounds 1st thing in the morning and only put them down new burrows, as the critters move alot and may have blocked that tunnel or moved on. Experience is the key to a good kill.

Chipmunks were tunneling along our foundation and deck post footings. Tried everything to no avail. Until this!

Tips:

1. The smoke is noxious -and you want in in hole, not yard. So prepare:

2. Be ready with dirt fo fill crevices / holes. We used top soil - so it was loose and easily filled.

3. Identify as many holes as you can - be ready at each.

4. Pick a time when you believe critters will be in hole - we did it at dusk.

GREAT HOUSEHOLD sold 2 sets (8 sticks) of Giant Destroyer Gas Bomb.
They didn't work. The sticks were defective and GREAT HOUSEHOLD refused to take them back.
The sticks burned less than half way. I tried to restart them but they still would not burn all the way through. GREAT HOUSEHOLD sold a defective or expired product.
GREAT HOUSEHOLD claims that Amazon sold the product to me and therefore were to blame; Amazon.com clearly states that GREAT HOUSEHOLD sold the product.
I asked for a replacement product but GREAT HOUSEHOLD refused, saying it was up to Amazon.
