There are no easy solutions to managing wildlife. Squirrels are rodents and are known to chew on wires, wood, etc. There are commercial taste repellents available but success varies with these products. Some alternatives include moving the trashcan to another area or a long term solution is to purchase a metal trashcan if the squirrel activity persists.
