No I haven't tried them but that is an excellent suggestion, at least for
the close in stuff (within about 50' of my house).
The problem is that most of the damage occurs anywhere from 100' from the
house to 1500' from the house as my beverage feeds run up to 1500' into the
woods in several directions, with multiple beverages. I don't think I would
be willing to spend the time or the money to deal with that, especially for
where the cable is "airborne". The fieldmice just run up the cables and
start chewing wherever they please.
