Copper Slug Tape

Copper Slug Tape

4m roll of self-adhesive copper tape, perfect for raised beds, planters etc.

Slugs and snails HATE crossing copper so this self-adhesive copper tape provides a quick, easy and long lasting barrier to these infuriating pests. Brilliant stuff!
Cut to the required length and apply to a clean, dry smooth surface to create a complete barrier against slugs and snails. It works really well around the top of a pot, planter or raised bed....and is completely harmless to wildlife, pets etc. I find that it lasts for years, still deterring slugs and snails even when the bright, coppery colour has faded to brownish verdegris.
****Remember that if you are applying this to a container that already contains soil or compost, the compost/soil must be slug free or else you will be fencing in the enemy!!! Many of the most damaging slugs spend much of their time below the soil/compost surface, and infested containers may also contain slug/snail eggs! So either use when the compost is brand new or treat existing compost/soil with Nemaslug first.
