How to Repair Squirrel Bitten Coil Garden Hose ?

bethfl(7b)July 10, 2010

Hi. Not sure if I'm posting in the best place. Anyway, twice a pesky squirrel has bitten two tiny holes in our coil type garden hose. Any tips on how to best repair this? And to discourage repeat bites? Thanks, Beth

Any repair would be temporary at best. You can try wrapping the holes with plumbers tape and putting a hose clamp over the tape covered bites, but I'm not sure how effective it would be. To discourage any critter your best defence is to give him a hot mouthful. Sprinkle Cayenne pepper over the damp hose. Or you can put the hose in some kind of container.
