Raccoons, squirrels, oppossums - to hunters these animals all have one thing in common, they're varmints that tear up feeders. Solar panel wires are often the food of choice for these varmints. An easy way to protect your solar panels is to buy conduit tubing from your local hardware store. Simply slip the solar panel wires through this protective conduit and attach to your feeder as normal. The covering will protect the wires from varmints, saving you aggravation and money.
