Fail after 4 months..
on December 20, 2011
We are on a hillside, where there are a lot of open space, and soft and dry soil. No matter when and what type of grass we put on our lawn. The gophers will find its way to destroy it. I used a lot of those smoke and kill and other solution. Not much use.
Four months ago, we decided to try do re-pave the front lawn we new grass again. Since it is a smaller area, we hope we can use this "stick" to set a "control" area, by putting them at 4 corners and 1 in the middle. So, we definitily overlap some area. I am not sure if it is the product or our luck. I don't see any gopher marks at the front lawn. I was quite pleased. However, one afternoon, I walked to the side and found that there are gopher holes on the edges and some parts of the lawn was destroy. I looked at the "stick", and it is not functioning anymore. I couldn't hear any sound/beep within 5 or 10 mins. I checked the rest of the "sticks". 4 out of 5 are not working. I thought it was battery, and quickly put in new ones in. it doesn't make any sound anymore. I looked inside the tube, and I don't see water mark, may be very little of rust inside of the tube. Other than that, no sign of wear and tear. The products just don't work anymore. Considering the price and the durability, I would NOT recommend this product. If the manufacture cannot even make such a simple product that at least 2 years for the price. I strongly defer any customers away from it.
