Quick and cheap conductive copper tape

Ace hardware has slug and snail tape by corry's for about six or seven dollars. It is copper tape to keep slugs and snails out of gardens. Is there a specific quality of copper needed for grounding that this kind of product would not offer? If not, than shipping times and charges are applicable

I imagine most any conductive tape would be fine, but it would be best to find one that also has conductive adhesive, so that when one piece of tape overlaps another they would have electrical continuity. The tape that stewmac sells is one of these:
