Detailed Description

The Snail and Slug Barrier protects your potted plants and trees from harmful snails and slugs. It is thought that the natural secretions of the snail or slug react with the copper causing a small current of electricity to be conducted from the mesh to the snail. This small shock delivered to the unwanted mollusk acts as a deterrent to additional progress or return visits.

The copper is knitted into a 5" wide tube that can easily stretch to slip around a 6" diameter pot - decorative and functional.

  1. Available in 2 lengths: 20' or 100'.
  2. Can be cut with scissors.
  3. Weathers to a verdigris colour.
  4. Lasts for years

This copper mesh can also be used as copper "ribbon" for festive decorating.
