    5 of 5 Stars  It's war, and I'm winning
    By Steve in Woodinville, WA on September 8, 2010

    My yard was under attack by moles. I'd wake every morning to five or so new mounds. I tried traps, but I wasn't having much luck. I didn't really want to use poison since I have two dogs and there are several cats in my neighborhood (they are one of the best solutions to moles). So, I started buying these at the local hardware store and using them. It is not an overnight solution. I would get up every morning and drop one of these in each new mound. Each day, there would be fewer mounds in the morning. After about a week of doing this, I pretty much conquered. I get maybe one mound a week. I live on a golf course, so I have neighboring grass on all sides (also filled with mole holes), so they journey into my yard at times. I realized pretty quick that buying these at the local hardware store pack by pack was going to get expensive. I searched the web for a better price and found this case. From here on out, I'll just always keep some on hand and be back for another case when I get low.

    5 of 5 Stars  Best tool I've found
    By SC in St Louis, MO on August 7, 2010
    Verified Purchase

    The giant smokers really worked compared to poison pallet and juicy fruit, etc. Can't use trap because soil is only 1 inch deep in most of the yard. We used this product a few years ago under our concrete porch and we didn't see gravels being dug out any more. This year, we had tunnels and holes all over the yard in about 2-3 weeks time. We used only 3 smokers in 2 different places. No more tunnels or holes.

    5 of 5 Stars  Battle of the rodents 2001
    By Chuck in Arizona on April 15, 2011

    Okay, I have secured financing for an all out battle, using scorched earth tactics. I purchased a dozen packages, which arrived quite quickly from, and immediately sent my forces to battle. I started with the close combat and lit some gassers in the the existing holes. Within a week, I have moved the pests about 60 yds BEYOND my grass areas and now I'm initiating phase 2. I call it Operation Acre 2 Haboob. Gassers are working great so far.

    3 of 5 Stars  Best that I have found
    By J.d. in North Texas on July 5, 2010

    I estimate that the number of gopher/moles killed per gasser deployed is about 10%. Even though I would like a higher "kill rate", this product is more effective than any others that I have found.

    Gophers took over my yard. Leaving 8-10 new holes every 24 hrs. I've been at war with them 3 weeks placing a destroyer as soon as a hole appears. It's not over yet, but it's down to 1-2 holes in every 24 hrs.

    By Don in Goodspring, Tn on December 6, 2015

    These things pump a lot of smoke into the gopher hole. I have used them on gophers and moles. Moles started clearing out the same day. Fun to use too just follow directions and plug up any holes that you see smoke coming out of!!

    4 of 5 Stars  Giant Destroyer evaluation
    By Max in Hazleton IN 47640 on October 30, 2015

    I have a house on 200 acres, and I mow about 25 acres around the house. That 25 acres houses at least 100 moles which, because of digging up the ground, make mowing hard on my back and the equipment. Fighting moles for a long time makes me a local expert. Giant destroyer provides a good temporary solution but the efectivenes depends on the person's knowledge of moles' habits. The moles make two types of tunels. The TRANSPORT tunels are several inches in diameter and have smooth internal walls when active. They are used to help moles to go from their nests to the feeding tunels, where they feed on worms and insects. The moles only eat live prey and poisoned products are a waste of money. The moles are very smart about choosing locations for their nests and will only dig them below protected areas, between the tree roots, under concrete or any other cover. For Giant to be effective, first identify the active transport tunnels. They are raised above the surface. Stick your finger into it and feel that the sides are smooth. Do not squash any. When these tunels are identified, look if they point toward a protected areas where a nest is located. If you find it, get as close to the nest as you can, feel the tunnel again and find out in which direction it goes. Now light the Giant fuse and stick the bomb as far in the tunnel as far you can push it, hopefully in the direction of the nest. Now cover the hole you made so no smoke can escape. If you find out a good transfer tunnel there will be no return of the smoke toward you. If the tunnel is inactive or blocked the smoke will come back at you and you have wasted your effort. If the tunnels are still active, I have seen that smoke spreading through lateral tunnels as much as 10 feet away from the Giant. Hopefully the smoke is involving the nest, but moles commonly have two exists from their nest and it will be possible that one ventillation tunel may still be open. After you think that the smoke may have entered the nest, re-examine the area a few days later for new activity. If present, renew the procedure at a slightly different location. GOOD LUCK

    5 of 5 Stars  Works Great
    By Pdogkilla in Montrose, co on September 28, 2015

    My parents own a 620 acre farm and battle continually against prairie dogs. These work as good as shooting them if not better as they provide the opportunity to kill a whole family in the hole rather than one at a time. And anyone can use these effectively as compared to operating a rifle.

    By Tetvet67 in WA State, USA on September 19, 2015

    I have been using this for a number of years and it is quite effective at ridding the yard of moles. Gotta get the main 'runs' and get 'em early when they have created the run recently but then you got 'em.

    1 of 5 Stars  Good Customer Service, but Giant Destroyers DID NOT WORK!
    By Rebekah in Woodside, CA on August 23, 2015

    We are over run with ground squirrels and turned to the Giant Destroyer flares with high hopes of ridding our place of hopefully most/ALL? of these damn damaging diggers! We spent three and a half hours gathering stones, preparing the holes, lighting the flares (one package was missing a fuse), inserting them in the active tunnels, blocking the entrances while being careful to keep the flares clear and smoking, trapping the smoke in the passages...we ended up doing 26 sites. PHEW!! Well, that's done! (We thought with a rueful smile) As we went in for a now-late lunch we saw smoke billowing near our side fence! We ran over and discovered one flare had set roots on fire and it had erupted in flames above ground! Thankfully, we found it in time and extinguished what could have been a devastating (and really embarrassing!) neighborhood disaster! Later that afternoon, we returned to survey what we expected to be a silent battle field only to see NO CHANGE IN ACTIVITY! Within one hour at the barn and round pen I counted 27 ground squirrels scampering about, laughing at our pathetically futile efforts! We know they had been in the tunnels while we were flaring because one panicked critter actually pushed the stone out of his way and out of my hands blasting out of the hole with a lit flare in it while I was plugging it up - scared the bejesus out of me!! Haven't found a poison that works either, So don't know what next to do - but don't waste your time with Giant Destroyers! The 1 star is for the company issuing a return label and refunding our purchase price in full. (They wouldn't pay for our labor time!) A total waste of time and effort!

  • 5 of 5 Stars  It certainly Preforms Mechanically
    By Satisfied in Tennessee on August 6, 2015

    It is difficult to know if the poison is actually killing anything because it is all done underground but I would not want to be under there breathing in the smoke. The little of the smoke that escapes stays close to the ground because it appears to be heavier than the air. That gives me confidence the poison is flowing down into the hole and into the tunnels. There is about 4-5 seconds time after lighting the fuse before the unit will activate. Therefore it is important to make sure the Destroyer will completely fit in the hole without a lot of activity on your part. I kept a big rock close by to seal up the hole once the Destroyer was released. Then I made an expedited retreat from the area to avoid breathing in the smoke.

QIs is safe to eat vegetables after using Giant Destroyers?
I used your Giant Destroyer product in my garden area about one month ago just after I planted my garden. The mole hole was about two feet away from the first row of garden that I planted but close to my rhubarb plant. Is is safe to eat my vegetables and my rhubarb? Here is what I planted: swiss chard, green beans and onions. I also have a greenhouse in the same area in which I have tomato and cucumber plants. Thanks for your attention to this matter.

AGiant Destroyer does not leave a residual at all and is not a product that is taken up by the plants root systems whatsoever. Once a cartridge is done burning and has killed the mole, the smoke dissipates and is no longer present.

QShould I keep my pets and dogs away when using Giant Destroyer?
I have a dog that runs loose in my yard. How long should I keep him out of the yard after I use the Giant Destroyer?

AThe Giant Destroyer typically is suppose to be used under ground and the smoke contained in a gophers tunnel which would be air tight.  Once the Giant Destroyer has been used, there would be no side effects from the product that your dog could suffer from. The dog can enter the yard immediately after the Giant Destroyer has been deployed.

QIs it deadly if you inhale the Giant Destroyer gas by accident?

AGiant Destroyers can be dangerous when they are not used according to the product label. The small amount of fumes you may breathe in when lighting the cartridge would not be harmful.

QI have squirrels living in my walls. Can I use Giant Destroyer safely in my home?


No, Giant Destroyer is basically a smoke bomb that is meant to be place outside in burrows and holes under the ground.  If you used this inside your whole house would be filled with smoke and that would not be good.  It is not permissible to use this product inside.  You probably have squirrels in your attic.  You should use one of our Havahart Squirrel Traps in the attic to capture the squirrels.  Also, this means there is an opening somewhere around your roof line where they are getting in.  You should make sure all trees are cut back from the roof line and close up any openings around the house that could allow for squirrels to enter the home.

QWhere do the groundhogs (woodchucks) die after Giant Destroyer Smoke Bomb/Gasser?
I moved to a new house and found out there are groundhogs in my yard. Do the bombs make the burrows uninviting so the animal does not want to return OR do the bombs actually kill the animal. If it kills the animal, do the groundhogs die underground or do the bombs make the groundhog leave the hole and die above ground (like when rats eat poison and die after looking for water)?

A Giant Destroyer Smoke Bomb/Gasser will suffocate the rodent and they will die in the burrow.
