Copper tape is never going to be cheap, copper is an expensive metal to get out of the ground, so will not come cheap even as tape. You might try finding a friendly plumber who will let you have copper pipe offcuts reasonably, or even free if you are very nice, but in the end copper has to be paid for.
I did try googling for it, and got some from a company selling the adhesive stuff 4 for 3, but that amount will not be enough for your allotment I imagine. If you do find a less expensive seller, do share the info - please?
hi 4711 I work for a manufacture of pest control products and i would be able to supply you bulk copper tape, also it is the serated type which tends to be more affective.
hi, just joined GW,finding it really helpful. just a quick question,does the coffee or copper have any effect on the plants?.I have a lovely grape vine that has a lot of grapes every year but can never get to them before the snails!.x
Yes it will. But you have to watch out for the sticky backing coming away, or the tape becoming cracked, and letting the little blighters wander in.
Also watch that overhanging plants don't provide an abseil point.
