Slug Control Using Copper Sheet
IÂve seen information indicating that thin copper strips, 2" or more in width, can be placed around flower pots or raised beds as obstructions for slugs to crawl over. Also, that slugs do not like to cross copper because it causes them to experience a minute electrical discharge.
Want to do a little experimenting with this. Has anyone had any experience with this - anyone know why aluminum sheet or foil etc. wouldnÂt have the same effect.? Anyone try building a Âslug fenceÂ with copper wire?
Out here thinkÂn maybe the slug should be the official coastal PNW mascot - any info would be appreciated
