I have been using slug shield to protect young vegetable and flower plants in my garden with excellent results.

I have been using slug shield to protect young vegetable and flower plants in my garden with excellent results.

The trick to using copper to deter slugs and snails is to place it so that some of the copper is perpendicular to the slug's/snail's direction of travel. When they touch the copper with their feelers they are repelled by it.

Although slug shield is made of copper wire, it is easily cut using an old pair of scissors. A 13” to 14” strip of the mesh can be formed into a cylinder about 4” in diameter. I find that a bobby pin works great for securing the overlapped ends of the mesh. Having the mesh cylinders around each plant also seems to discourage birds that will occasionally nibble young seedlings.

Like a new penny, the copper mesh is bright and shiny at first but takes on a bronze patina on exposure to air and moisture. This color change helps the material blend in with the garden but it remains effective.

Waste of money

I purchased four rolls for my raised beds and it was a waste of money. The netting is not solid copper and loses its copper tint after a few waterings turning into and ugly brownish color, and the snails go over it with no problems.
