I've seen this a lot too. I always assumed it was also for potential rodent control. I've heard they don't like lights and will stay away...

I just use a clamp on light and attach it to the rear ladder - doesn't get any simpler than that!

About as simple as it gets, solar rope lights $10 bucks harbor freight. Get a couple and leave them lay on the ground or wrap them where ever.
