Is anyone else having problems with squirrels eating their Christmas lights?
We put up our Christmas lights (including two brand new LED strands which were not cheap) on our front porch last weekend. I came home from work on Wednesday evening to find that one side of the porch was not lit – I figured one of the fuses blew and planned to check it later. But when I came home last night, none of the lights were working. Upon further investigation, I noticed that the wires had been cut/chewed in around 10 different spots. I am almost certain it was the squirrels (I regularly see 4-5 on our porch and our neighbor’s when I leave in the morning).
We put up lights last year (although, not as many) and didn’t have this problem. Our next door neighbor’s lights weren’t working either last night. Our neighbor a couple doors down, however, has had hers up for a couple weeks now without any apparent problems.
Has anyone else experienced this or does anyone have a solution??
