Does anyone know of a way to prevent squirrels from running on electric wires?
Squirrels are using the electric wire that brings electric into our home as a runway. I see them running both directions, both to our house and to the electric pole.
At least so far, I do not see them gaining access to the interior of my home. However, I don't want to wait until that happens to address the problem.
The electric comes into our home about 2' below the roofline and about 10' above the ground. We have metal siding and a metal roof. I have seen them getting to the wire by climbing the electric pole (not on our property). Once they get about a foot from where the electric comes into the house, they jump onto our roof. I have walked the roof and cannot figure out why our roof would interest them. Obviously, we don't throw food up there. I cannot find any nest or damage caused by the squirrels.
