Snail Fence made of Copper Mesh
They Need Clear Boundaries.
This snail fence comes from a ribbon weaving shop in Wuppertal. They normally work with fabric, but for the snail fences they weave copper wire with polypropylene threads, (which gives the copper mesh a stability) into long, flexible strips.
Up to 20 sqm large areas can be fenced with this filigree woven band. It is not necessary to set up the fence in a particular form; the band is flexible. You wind the enclosed pegs like post of a fence through one or two stitches in the band and put them into the ground. You can also stretch the band in planters along the edge of the vessel. It has been proven, that copper, when it comes into contact with the snails’ natural body slime, sets off an unpleasant reaction (due to oxidization) that deters them from trying to crawl over the copper fence.
