What would be gnawing on the end of my exteral log ends? These are small 1/8" teeth marks. One damaged log end is 15 ft up - with no access. Logs treated 3 yrs ago.


It is probably squirrels or porcupines. You may not think it is accessible, but they can get just about anywhere they want to go.There is a commercial product called Liquid Fence that works well.It doesnt last more than a couple of weeks and is not pleasant to the nose when first applied but works well. You could also mix one small bottle of Tabasco Sauce in one gallon of water and spray on the log ends. It to will only be good for a short time, but more pleasant smelling.
