        Comments about Copper Slug Tape:

        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.

            Comments about Copper Slug Tape:

            This is way thinner than I expected and I guess that's why it's cheap. And I saw evidence that slugs went right over it. The adhesive was not sticky enough for this application.

            I love using copper because it's the ONLY slug deterrent that is not toxic.

            Compared to the popular Slug Shield product (that they don't carry), I see why this is cheaper and why Slug Shield actually works because its 3-dimensional. Now I know...

                  I ordered the copper tubing and apparently someone thought it was not significant enough to send so it was cancelled! It's okay someone else got the business and $350.oo for other items in my garden.

                      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.

                      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.

                          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.
