Copper slug tape is invaluable for the control of slugs and snails on the young shoots of bulbs. In particular the young shoots of bulbs are very prone to damage by slugs and snails. Therefore by using a copper slug tape which adheres to the outside of pots is ideal.
Length of tape is 4m and 23mm wide.
Vitax Copper Slug Tape can be invaluable for protecting garden tubs and greenhouse staging. This pack contains enough tape to protect 12 x five inch pots. When a slug or snail attempts to cross the copper strip, a tiny electrical charge is created naturally from within the copper, causing them to turn away. A complete circle must be made around the pot or bed you want to protect. Care must be taken to ensure any overhanging plants don’t make a bridge for the pests to cross. As with any copper material, this tape will turn greenish with age but will not affect the performance of the tape.
Suitable for organic gardening.
Aspect: All parts of the garden that are prone to slugs and snails
