Top critical review
good while it lasted less than a year.
on July 9, 2017
I really was hopeful that this product would last more than a year. i purchased 7/12/16 and it is now 7/9/17 and the unit no longer works. Like other users, i suspect corrosion due to the switch design which appears it might allow water to intrude from due and rain.
When it worked, it completely eliminated my vole issue in my back .25 acre back yard. It was placed by a pear tree which was almost dead from the vole activity and after putting this in the ground, I immediately (within the first week) noticed new life starting to grow. The tree has many fruit this year and up until it stopped working, the voles has stayed away.
It has not been in the ground for even 1 year and it has stopped working. I checked the charge by turning it off and letting it charge in full sun for the day before turning the switch back on but it still does not make any more sound. Unfortunately I expected that it should last more than 1 year.
