Problem with critters this year


Recommended Posts

At the end of last year the (last two nights) I had a critter chewing through everything from speaker wire, cat5, lights and extension cords wire.  Looks like he is back again this year, last night he chewed through to of my feeds for arches, and a sent of leds.  I remember reading a thread about this problem but can seem to find it. 

 

My question is:  Has anyone else had this problem and what is the solution?

 

Thanks

Going to try this.  I noticed if I have an extension cord with power on it they don't bother it.  Not sure if it is a squirrel or rabbit.  The cables that are bundled together usually are fine.  I am gonig to try that, hopefully I don't get interference!

I've had issues with squirrels chewing on my light strings.  I originally left display items on the ground at around 26% so people walking through the yard wouldn’t step on anything in the dark.  It turns out that squirrels don’t mess with anything if I leave them on at even lower levels either.

Jackel,

Great post thanks for the link, not the one I remember reading but may have to try that if the problem persists.  At this point laying a charged extension cord in the vinicity of the problem seems to be doing the trick.  (I probably jinxed myself now).  After three days in a row with an issue in the same location everything has subsided.
