Animals Chewing on Wires

Animals chewing on wires:
It is very common to find rodents and other animals chewing on wires, cables, pipes, and other round objects, which represents a significant threat to property and health.  There are two theories as to why animals chew round objects.  The first is that animals chew round objects to keep their teeth small.  Some animals, especially rodents, are known to have continuously growing teeth, and they are thought to have to chew objects so their teeth will still fit inside their mouths.  The second theory is that animals chew round objects such as wires, cables, and pipes because they are similar to small trees, and by chewing small trees, animals are able to reach both seeds and fruits.  Whatever the reason is, animals will damage property and environments while practicing their chewing.  Combined with their impressive ability of getting into small spaces, animals, especially rodents, are extremely dangerous when they are chewing on round objects.  In the state of Georgia, particularly in the cities of: Atlanta, Alpharetta, Marietta, Cumming, Johns Creek, Milton, Roswell, Duluth, Suwannee, Sugar Hill, Buford, Gainesville, Dawsonville, Dunwoody the population has experienced an unexpected increase in animal population due to the rapid growth and the massive land development clearing.
