In this quick video I'll be showing you how to keep snails from eating your tomato plants! Find the copper tape used in the video here:

No snails were harmed while making this video, as I like snails. This method is way more humane than using poisons or traps, as they don't get harmed in the slightest. Enjoy the video everyone!

@Jeff Jennings the current only flows once the circuit is made but you probably already know this now as my reply is 2 years late😉🖖

You know that you DON'T need the battery in the plant pot. Another trick is to have a pot what has a rough exterior, they hate hard rough surfaces.

Great video. Snails and slugs don’t copper on its own and will get repelled on touching it, but it needed to be a good quality and large enough to get a good reaction. I think that the copper tape that was used here might have been a lower quality tape to get a reaction to the first part of the circuit and therefore needed electrical part of the assembly to make the circuit. I think this is why this is not commercially available. However if you live in an area with higher level of acid rain and you are worried about sulphuric acid forming from the copper then I can see then benefits of this electric fence. I’m definitely going to give this ago.

"No snails were hurt". You sound like a total bitch. What the fuck are you worried about, the Liberals coming after you? Grow a pair you spineless wimp.

True man right here. Don't let the libs entice you into joining their "pro-snail" agenda. Liberals are, in fact, similar to snails: ugly and gay! Liberals love nothing more than protecting creatures unworthy of being protected.. Society needs to grow a pair already and STOP WORRYING ABOUT SNAIL MASSACRE!

@Loris Hofer not really, 'not harmed' can mean a lot of thins in this case it means that they only got shocked slightly, like electrical fences you see for cows (that would be a comparison for us) we dont get hurt by it for long, just a bit for a short period of time, you can see this by the snails reaction

everyone talking about 3 phase.... "im an electrician, use all 3 legs of the circuit" Yeah, cant wait for that snail to turn into a 30,000 degree ball of plasma when all 3 legs cross...., and your tomato plant? That will be the kindling that starts your garage on fire.

Harmless? Yeah tell that to the poor starving snails. Its just cook... wait a second, cook is such a weird word, it has two os yet it sounds like it only has one. Yummy snails are yummy.

I thought they would foil the electrical setup by climbing themselves (like a ladder), but alas! Still, there was hope (or so I interpreted) at 2:10, we clearly see the smartest of the bunch, running towards the battery! J'ai pensé qu'ils déjoueraient le montage électrique en s'escaladent eux-mêmes (comme une échelle), mais hélas ! Pourtant, il y avait de l'espoir (ou alors j'ai interprété) à 2:10, on voit clairement le plus intelligent de la bande, courir vers la batterie !

Just don't let the leaves or plants get too low otherwise the snails can bridge the defences by climbing up them instead.

Monolithic excavators dreging up untold sums of rock and ore, continent spanning logistic networks distributing materials to factories producing 1000s of units an hour, 24 hours a day; all to make a snail go "oof ouchie" to keep them away from the tomatos. It's a funny little world we live in.
