There is foam wrapping around the metal pipes to protect them from the elements plus to insulate them from temperature changes
I respectfully prefer all of the wildlife in our recognizable area. All of us get cottontail rabbits, chipmunks, ducks, squirrels, white tail deer, plus a whole list of other animals native to these parts. My condo stands in front of a wildlife preserve, making the woods just a few steps past our property line. If I ever want to go for a long walk in nature, all I have to do is step outside plus head to the back end of our lot. All of us decided to put a salt lick in this part of our property because the deer care about the salt. All of us can see them from the windows in the back during the night minutes if the people I was with and I turn on the lights near the property line. The deer care about the salt plus the people I was with and I care about the little show the people I was with and I get from the deer each night. Recently we’ve had a family of raccoons that has moved into our yard plus have been trying to open our garbage cans every night to forage in our trash. After I started using bungee cords on the trash can lids, they couldn’t get into the trash cans anymore. Unfortunately, I kept finding them meandering the backyard at night despite not being able to access our garbage anymore. Since our raccoons don’t carry rabies in this part of the world, I’m not genuinely bothered by them at all. That’s as long as they stay out of our garbage, that’s for sure. One night I found numerous of them chewing on the refrigerant lines running out the back of our Heating plus A/C condenser unit outside. There is foam wrapping around the metal pipes to protect them from the elements plus to insulate them from temperature changes. The raccoons didn’t cause any disfigure, but it still worries myself and others to this day that they’ll eventually mangle the Heating plus A/C condenser.
