October 2014.

An adventurous snail tries to cross the copper barrier into an Ecobed full of luxuriant green vegies.  After a couple of tries he dropped off and slid away to wreak havoc elsewhere.

This is the first time I have actually seen the copper tape snail barrier in action and although I knew it worked well (no snails in the Ecobeds), seeing is believing.  The tape has been in place for 18 months and is certainly weathering,  but it is clearly still fully effective.
