I just wanted to say that I found out that "Spittlebugs" can eat through hot glue from a hot glue gun and cause shorts in wires. I had a temporary line above ground that had a split that was tinned, soldered together, and encapsulated with hot glue. A short was detected in the line and it was eventually discovered that a spittlebug caused it. It ate little holes into the hot glue all the way down to the wires. I guess it was looking for a plant stem and plant juices. I had to re-splice everything.
