Using electric fence for slugs

aldonail(z5 Illinois)March 30, 2007

I serched the other messages on getting rid of slugs but did not find any mention of an electic fence. The article said it would not harm other animals. Has anyone used this fencing? How well did it work?

That would not work at all because the wire can't be touching anything or it will short out.

Try copper tubing instead...they will get a shock if they come in contact with it.
