Default Freekin' rodents!

I needed to rip some boards for the new kegger. So, I go down to the pole barn to drag the table saw up to the house. What is it with rodents and rubber? How many chunks of copper in your snoot does it take to realize IT AIN'T FOOD!



Last year, it was 5 of 8 spark plug cables in the RV.

That's nothing peanut butter & rat poison can't fix.

We have a huge problem where I work with rabbits that chew the plug wires on our vehicles.
I'm wondering if rodents do that as part of their nest building ritual. Or maybe to grind down their teeth.

I know I'm gonna get flamed for being a Cliff Claven here, but rabbits aren't rodents. They're lagomorphs. Sorry, couldn't help myself....



BTW a little automotive anti-freeze should do the trick with the mice
