squirrel

Hi, we have our camper sitting out on a concrete slab. Squirrels ate through our propane hose several years ago. We put a rubber piece over it and it worked until this summer. They have now eaten through the shorter hose and also the longer one underneath. Does anyone have any idea what we could put over the hoses to keep them from chewing? Thanks.

This may not be the cheapest solution but some braided stainless steel hose covers from the automotive aftermarket may work http://www.amazon.com/Mr-Gasket-8090.../dp/B000BWCG8Q
In the telephone industry, fiber optic lines are commonly cut by three things: people digging, train derailments and animals (above and below ground) chewing on lines.

Sister had that problem with her propane grill. They found a wire at the store that looks like a compression spring and slipped it over the hose while replacing it. She never had a problem with it since. I would contact a Propane shop that makes custom hoses, and recertifies LP tanks. They can make you a new hose of any length and recommend a solution.

You must have a small appetite.

In some states, red squirrels are classed as vermin, while gray squirrels are classed as game animals. Shooting gray squirrels out of season and without a hunting license can get a person fined.

Here in Virginia, squirrels are game animals. However, if they are caught in the act of destroying my property, they are properly & abruptly taken care of. PC police be damned.

In NY, red squirrels can be taken at any time. Regular squirrels are 6 a day from sept 1st to Feb 28.. My cat hates red squirrels.
