Slug-repelling Copper Bands

These copper bands are one of the best, non-harmful slug repellants around. Slugs and snails hate copper because it causes a harmless electric shock-like reaction when they come into contact with it, so they crawl away. Bend them into rings and push them into the soil at the base of your plant.

Slug and snail deterrent ~~ Don’t dump out that last bit of coffee that you didn’t finish, throw it in a spray bottle and spray your plants to naturally deter slugs and snails. Also, you can make a slug “fence” around the garden with the grounds. This is a double bonus because as the coffee grounds deter slugs, they are also a great addition to soil and earthworms love them!

Keep slugs away, the copper reacts with the slime that they are covered in and issues them a small electric shock.
