Stop slugs and snails getting into your pots with this self adhesive copper tape which is simply applied to the rim or base of a pot or container and forms a barrier snails and slugs will not cross.
The slug's slimy mucus reacts to the copper resulting in an electrical charge thus the slug or snail gets a small electric shock, deterring it from crossing the copper tape.
This tape forms a formidable barrier against both snails and slugs. It's long lasting, looks good and sticks to any clean dry container. Can also be used around door and window frames to deter slugs from entering greenhouses, conservatories and sheds.
4m in length.
Hints for use:
Silica is now being used in the production of some pots stopping the tape from sticking. Wash pots in warm water plus washing up liquid and allow to dry.
Where to use: On any containers around the rim or the base.
How to use: Apply directly to clean dry surface. Stick on in shorter lengths and overlap each one. (In cold weather warm the tape up to stick better).
