Slugs and snails can do devastating damage to plants in tubs, planters and greenhouse staging, almost overnight destroying precious plants and seedlings. It is always a good idea to keep your garden and greenhouse clean and tidy, regularly removing dead and dying debris which makes ideal shelters for slugs. Keep a check underneath plants in flowerpots to expose slugs hiding underneath, and check shady areas where they congregate. Keeping your garden soil turned over in winter will expose clusters of white slug eggs, which will make a tasty meal for wildlife such as hedgehogs and frogs. Vitax Copper Slug Tape can be invaluable for protecting garden tubs and greenhouse staging. This pack contains enough tape to protect 12 x five inch pots. When a slug or snail attempts to cross the copper strip, a tiny electrical charge is created naturally from within the copper, causing them to turn away. A complete circle must be made around the pot or bed you want to protect, and care taken to ensure any overhanging plants don?t make a bridge for the pests to cross. As with any copper material, this tape will turn greenish with age but will not affect the performance of the tape. Vitax Copper Slug Tape is suitable for organic gardening.
