            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.
