Do bronze garden tools deter slugs and snails?


The answer seems to be a resounding YES! Whatever the explanation may be, there's pretty convincing anecdotal evidence that the copper within the tools is a significant deterrentĀ for these slimy pests.

Watering in our poly tunnel the other morning, it dawned on me that the salad crops were all growing well with no slug or snail damage. The only control measure being weeding with the bronze Slava Sickle or Ljubica Weeder - no pellets, no nematodes, no night time slug hunting.
