    Unhappy New siding being gnawed, please help!

    Hi - I could really use some advice. I live in Missouri. My house had defective Masonite siding on it that was rotting off the house. Nothing had ever gnawed on it though. We just replaced our siding with James Hardie Siding (cement fiber) a few months ago. Something is gnawing the bottom few boards of our siding (especially the very bottom one) ALL THE WAY AROUND MY HOUSE. I'm about to lose my mind. We had a company come out, trapped squirrels, rabbits, etc. Nothing works. This stuff is supposed to be indestructible but my house appears to now be a giant chew toy. What can I do?

    Could it possible be badgers or woodchucks that are knawing on your nice siding? They are very destructive critters, and will chew on anything, or dig under anything in sight.

    Just one more thought.......Try setting up a still camera, if you can borriow one from a friend, like hunters have in the woods during hunting season. If it is some critter, the camera will get a shot of it. No other suggestions other than I hope the critter loses all his (her) teeth from knawing the cement board.

    Good luck.
