I had this problem. It’s unpredictable: one set of lights the squirrels ate twice, another they never touched, though they’re the same type of lights. After splicing the wires back together I covered the entire string with electrical tape, hoping the squirrels found it less delicious. So far so good, and it’s been a year.
BTW if you want to splice yours back together you might want to use self-sealing silicone tape – it makes a watertight seal.
