Some say that slugs and snails get an
electric shock when they touch copper.
This may or may not be true: but one
thing has been proven, that copper,
when it comes into contact with the
creatures’ natural body slime, sets off
an unpleasant reaction (due to oxidization)
that deters them from trying to
crawl over the copper strips. The rings
don’t need any particular shape, only
the material is important – pure copper
plate. Here we offer a repellent whose
effectiveness is due to a portion of pure
copper – they are suitable for garden
beds and pots.
Modest, but effective.
These rings – you can place them in a
plot of vegetables or in beds of perennials
around the newly planted or the
fresh growth – come with a simple, precise
form without any special profile.
The only thing that is important is the
material (based upon the above-mentioned
reasons): a pure copper plate,
generally avoided by the snails. Wait for
just a few days after setting it up and
then see if snail eggs still appear inside
of the copper borders.
