    Stinky goo seems to work sometimes. Smells like a very strong pesticide or herbicide (ever get Poast on your hands, or smell Malathion?...this is much stronger). Also used in woodpecker hole filler, pole paint, and in padmounts.

    Ask any telco person....squirrels love plastic stuph. They used to eat the protective boots around "ready-access" boxes on outside plant cable runs; and then piss in them. Instant corrosion.

    They have claws that let them climb walls; what's "too slick" to them?

    3M built those new hard plastic splice housings {they look like torpedoes...} and ISTM I read about their efforts to make them taste bad.

    Had some work done on the house so I had the ladder out. Took a look at the drop from the pole and found this. They had eaten through 3 of the 7 strands. POCO is coming out to fix it today.

    I said stinky goo because I can't remember the name of the stuff. One issue is that our supplier requires you to buy a bunch of it (utility quantities). I'll see what they have in smaller quantities.

    Squirrels are rodents, no different then eating rats.
