Did the copper tape beat the slugs and save my strawberries?


So… strawberries, slugs, copper tape. I promised you an update after I put copper tape around the raised bed with the strawberries in. I’m pleased to say it definitely works. This Wimbledon finals day, we had enough strawberries for 3 massive portions. With cream of course. So we’re looking forward to lots more strawberries. Em, now we just have to work out how to beat the starlings. Coz they’ve discovered the strawberries too. Enjoy!

  1. I'm glad it worked, I've been looking for a decent solution. Apparently only 20-30% of slugs are above ground. We live in a really wet but mildish area (S. Wales) so the slugs are insane here. I dug up an old planter left from a previous owner of my house and there must have been 50 to 100 in there…… Urgh. Makes it worse that I have to de-lung worm all the pets every month because of the amount of slugs in the area. Anyway rant over and thanks for the initial video and the follow up.
