Vitax Copper Slug Tape
Copper Slug Tape stops slugs and other gastropods in their tracks by providing a barrier to plants and crops.
Serrated to provide extra protection against snails, Copper Slug Tape is a popular alternative to more chemical based solutions.
Copper Slug Tape:
- Adhesive copper tape barrier
- Emits a tiny electrical charge when touched
- Excellent for use on pots and planters.
It is the tiny electromagnetic charge a slug or snail feels when it tries to cross Copper Slug Tape which prevents them reaching the plants and crops.
A tiny electrical charge is created naturally from within the copper causing them to turn away.
Suitable for organic gardening, Slug Copper Tape comes in a four metre pack which will protect up to 12, five inch pots.
To use, remove the protective paper and apply direct to a dry, clean surface. Stick the tape in a complete circle around the pot or bed you want to protect.
Make sure any overhanging branches or leaves are trimmed away and do not overhang the protected area as these will act as a bridge for slugs to use.
As with any copper material, Copper Slug Tape will turn green with age, but will not affect the product’s performance.
