If you’re sick of snails and slugs making a meal out of your garden, but also can’t fathom poisoning those slimy little guys, then GreenerGreenGrass ‘ Slug Shield could be the natural deterrent you’ve been looking for. The Slug Shield uses coiled copper to repel slugs and snails both physically and electrochemically, without adding toxins to the environment or killing them off. By wrapping a Slug Shield around the base of plants, pots, and greenhouse table legs, you can repel slugs year-round. And unlike copper tape, the Slug Shield expands with plant growth so the product only needs to be applied one time and does not damage stalks. The shield works on a variety of plants, including citrus trees, orchids, dahlias, hostas, and a broad range of vegetables . + GreenerGreenGrass The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
