Works like magic
Reviewed in Australia on 5 December 2019
I was a bit unsure at first, I had also ordered some 'copper' tape from another supplier, which turned out to be copper-coloured transparent tape, totally useless.
This product however is excellent, in order to repel snails and slugs the tape needs to be made of copper metal, not copper coloured cardboard which some brands are. This tape is solid copper, with an adhesive coating on one side.
I wrapped some tape around the inside of a large plastic bowl, caught some snails and waited to see if any escaped (see photo 1). As soon a snail touched the copper tape, it received a static electricity charge and it wouldn't proceed. After an hour, not one snail had escaped, they were all huddled together in the shadiest spot (see photo 2).
They were still there two hours later when I finally fed them to the magpies. I highly recommend this product because it actually works.
