          It is hard to know if Copper Slug Tape will work over time. I applied it around Dahlias that were clearly impacted by slugs - will know over time if the tape is effective.

            In northern California we have a lot of slugs and snails in the garden. This is quite effective at keeping slugs and snails away from tender plants. It's easy to peel off the paper backing and apply around pots.

              Comments about : Copper Slug Tape:

              I haven't had a whole season of using this tape yet, but so far so good. Since I live on the edge of a woodland, my herb and salad greens bed is often overrun with slugs. I usually use Sluggo and beer traps, but am hoping that I can prevent the marauders from even getting in with this tape!

                      I have the tape all around my raised beds and no slugs. I did have to tack the tape to the boards as the adhesive does not work well.

                            I'm bummed by this. We built two raised wooden beds about 8 weeks ago and ordered two rolls of this product to line the tops. The day after assembling the beds and filling them, I applied it along the top edge of one of the beds and along the exterior side of the other to see if there would be a difference with duration. It went down easily enough and I burnished it on, pushing hard to make a good seal.

                            WEAR GLOVES! Stupid me, this gives a nasty cut. Like another reviewer, we planned out the footage we needed and the two rolls we ordered fell short by about 2 feet. I'd order one more than you need. Unfortunately, 8 weeks later it is peeling off and flapping in the wind. Maybe if you tacked it down or used it under the rim of a collared planter that would protect it from the weather? On the plus side, I haven't seen any slugs or snails in the beds.
