Copper Slug & Rodent Deterrent
Copper Slug and rodent control mesh made from 100% copper for rodent exclusion and rodent proofing. This type of 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.
Copper Slug Barrier
This copper mesh cannot be chewed through by rodents. It is the first choice of experts for controlling snails and slugs. The copper used is ‘Grade A’ which is the ideal metal for the control of these pests.
The mesh consistently redirects slugs and copper naturally puts them off from attempting to enter your plant pots and vegetable patches. Copper prevents these pests from secreting slime which prevents them from crossing the mesh, and if they do they are dried out when they arrive at the plants.
The copper slug barrier is easy to install around vegetable raised beds and pots. It ensures your vegetables and vulnerable plants thrive without being afflicted by snails or slugs. The best form of slug control is deterrent and this copper mesh for pest control is the best deterrent.
The mesh should be anchored firmly with pegs to create a small fence, or it can be glued to raised beds and planters of all shapes and sizes.
Copper mesh can be used as an effective cleaning utensil, as well as a copper scouring pad. The anti-microbial properties of copper are ideal for this application.

FAQs For This Product
How Does The Copper Slug Mesh Deter Slugs?
The Copper Slug Mesh utilises the inherent properties of copper to deter slugs in a fascinating, yet simple manner. When slugs come into direct contact with copper, a reaction occurs due to the difference between the slug’s mucus and the copper material. A natural electric charge is produced as a result of this reaction, which gives the slug an uncomfortable electric shock. This sensation is unpleasant for the slug, prompting it to retreat and avoid the area protected by the mesh.
Moreover, copper’s natural properties mean that it does not rust or deteriorate rapidly, ensuring that the mesh remains effective for longer periods of time. As a result, gardens remain protected from these pests for prolonged periods without having to replace or maintain them frequently.
Can The Copper Mesh Also Deter Other Pests?
Certainly, while the Copper Slug Mesh is primarily designed to deter slugs, it can also be effective against certain other pests. Snails, being closely related to slugs and possessing a similar mucus-covered body, will experience the same uncomfortable sensation upon contact with the copper. This makes the mesh an effective deterrent for both slugs and snails.
Additionally, the physical barrier of the mesh can act as a deterrent for larger pests, preventing them from accessing plants. However, it’s worth noting that the primary purpose of this mesh is slug deterrence, and its effectiveness against other pests may vary.
Will Rain Or Watering Affect The Mesh’s Efficacy?
Rain or regular watering will not diminish the efficacy of the Copper Slug Mesh. In fact, copper’s natural properties ensure that it remains resistant to corrosion, allowing it to maintain its functionality even in damp garden environments. While the mesh may develop a patina or slight discoloration over time due to oxidation – a natural process for copper when exposed to the elements – this change in appearance will not impact its slug-deterring capabilities.
