Tests have shown copper barrier tape is the best protection from slugs and snails. When they make contact with the copper it causes a reaction similar to an electric shock.
Either attach the tape using the adhesive backing or a staple gun to the pot or raised wooden bed to form a barrier. Non-toxic and long-lasting, with no chance of poisoning other animals, pets or children.
When a slug or snail attempts to cross the strip, a tiny electrical charge is created naturally from within the copper face. This charge repels the pests without killing them making it a friendly and safe option.
Remove the protective paper and apply the tape directly to a clean, dry surface.
Stick the tape in a complete circle around the pot.
Nail or tack the tape onto the garden bed you want to protect.
Trim any branches hanging over the protected area or they will act as bridges for the pests to climb across.
As with any copper material, this tape will change to a verdigris colour, creating a more natural look. This will not affect the performance of the product.
For snail control, additional protection can be added by cutting cm grooves in the tape before application.
1. What do I do now I have a snake?
Following are some of the options you may wish to consider if you are not an expert in snake handler by trade or training. A) Call a professional snake handler to come and remove the snakeB) With great care take it to a council The trap is made of mesh fabric that offers no protection against snake bite. I in anyway you are uncertain that you can deal with a caught snake, please do not buy this product and consider an electronic snake repeller.
2. What size snake can I catch?
It's going to depend on the diameter of the snake. The maximum head width must be smaller than 3cm to fit into the trap. It is not critical that the whole snake fit inside the trap as snakes can not go backwards, only forward. Some snakes will completely go inside the trap if they will fit, but we have reports of snakes up to 3 m that did not go completely into the trap but were still captured.
