Copper Mesh For Slug Control and Rodent Proofing
Copper rodent mesh for slug control is made from 100% copper wire. This mesh is tubular, flat (approximately 4 inches wide) and rolled for ease of storage and use.
Rolls of copper mesh are used to fill cracks where pipes enter the home, as well as gaps around foundation vents. It is easy to shape, cut, and install. As copper is much easier to work with than steel wool, it will not rust and will hold up to the elements over time.

FAQs For This Product
Is This Mesh Recyclable At The End Of Its Lifecycle?
Copper is a highly valuable metal and is widely accepted at recycling centers. Once the mesh has outlived its usefulness in your garden, it can be recycled to produce new products, reducing waste and promoting sustainability. Recycling not only conserves resources but also reduces the energy required to produce new items from raw materials.
Will The Mesh Corrode Or Oxidise Over Time?
The copper mesh for slug control is inherently resistant to corrosion due to the natural properties of copper. However, when exposed to the elements, especially air and moisture, copper can undergo a process called oxidation. This results in the development of a greenish patina on the surface, known as verdigris. This patina acts as a protective layer, further shielding the underlying copper from corrosion. It’s worth noting that while the mesh may change in appearance over time due to this oxidation, its effectiveness as a slug deterrent remains unaffected. The patina is not a sign of deterioration but rather a natural protective response of the copper to environmental exposure.
How Is This Mesh Different From Chemical Slug Repellents?
The copper mesh for slug control stands out from chemical slug repellents in several key ways:
- Eco-Friendly: Unlike chemical repellents that may introduce toxins into the environment, the copper mesh is a natural solution, ensuring that your garden remains free from harmful chemicals.
- Safety: Chemical repellents can pose risks to other beneficial insects, pets, and even humans if ingested or contacted. The copper mesh offers a safe alternative that targets slugs without endangering other living beings.
- Durability: While chemical repellents need reapplication, especially after rain or irrigation, the copper mesh provides consistent protection over time, requiring minimal maintenance.
- Sustainability: Chemical solutions often come in plastic packaging and containers that contribute to waste. The copper mesh, being recyclable, offers a sustainable option, reducing the environmental footprint.
- Cost-Effective in the Long Run: Although there’s an initial investment with the copper mesh, it lasts for several years, potentially saving costs on frequent purchases of chemical repellents.
- No Residue: Chemical repellents can leave residues in the soil that might affect plant health or enter the groundwater. The copper mesh ensures slug deterrence without any residual impact on the environment.
