Can you patch a bike tube with electrical tape?
Cut a three-inch piece of electrical or duct tape. Believe it or not, materials contained in patch kits often aren’t as effective as good-quality tape. Place the piece of tape over the hole, making certain the hole is in the center of the strip. Wrap the tape completely around the tube.

A properly patched area of a tube is stronger than intact tube area. Never patch a tube more than 3 times.
Is it worth patching a bike tube?
Overall, patching is cheaper and better for the environment than replacing your tube, so I recommend it for most situations. However, there are some flats that cannot be patched. If the hole is near the valve stem or if it is a linear tear and not a hole, you will need to swap tubes.

Gorilla glue is good but a little to thick for tires imho.
