        Comments about Copper Slug Tape:

        I had heard that copper tape is used to keep slugs from your raised vegetable beds. We have had problems with slugs in the past so wanted to give this product a try. It works. No slugs. It was very easy to use. I am very pleased with the product.

        Comments about Copper Slug Tape:

        we measured our raised bed and ordered two rolls of tape accordingly. When the tape came it wasn't enough and they two rolls were of different lengths. You need to keep a closer watch on your fulfillment people. Also, double check that your product jibes with what is listed. We now have to order more tape to see if this stuff even works. So, we don't know if it's an effective barrier as you didn't give us enough tape to make a complete barrier.

            Comments about Copper Slug Tape:

            Maybe I didn't read all the information about this product, but I was surprised to find it so flimsy. I thought it might be thin metal that I could force into the ground around my newly sprouted beans and cucumbers. It is like paper and was difficult to place around my plants. I haven't noticed the snails eating my plants yet, so hopefully it is working to deter them. I will reserve any other comments until I have more experience with the product.

                Comments about Copper Slug Tape:

                I use containers for gardening and the slugs were eating plants down to the bare stem. I put the tape around the containers and they stay out.
                It tears occasionally, but the adhesive is good, so it's easy to piece together.

                  Comments about Copper Slug Tape:

                  Just what I've been looking for that keeps slugs from eating herbs in pots, vegetables in raised beds and other plants in pots that slugs like. I would make the tape a little wider since I put two rows of it on each pot and raised garden bed.

                    I can't speak to whether it's long lasting, but I put it around two of my raised beds and have definitely seen that those beds are slug-free and my others are not. Ordering more of the tape now for my other beds!

                      Great concept, but the tape does not stay on for very long. After several spring rains the tape started coming off my raised beds. Would be better if was a bit thicker and could be nailed on.

                          I have a hosta in a large pot that was being eaten by snails, so I bought some of the copper tape to thwart them. I had visions of the nasty things being zapped and waited to see what would happen as they crossed the tape. Nothing. They glided across it like they were ice skating, so now I'm back to using Deadline.
