         Same is true of slugs and snails-they are easily electrocuted, and/or
discouraged from crawling over electrical wires.  Current need not be very
much, a small battery, even the current which flows between two dissimilair
metals in close proximity.  Not sure if this is why Copper strips are effective
as slug barriers, but suspect it is.
