How can I stop squirrels from chewing wires?

Squirrels keep chewing through my patio light cords.

    The only thing I can think of is to put the cords inside conduit, which will protect them.

    put baffles on the ends so they cannot get onto wire; cut conduit into 6" pieces split down side slip over wires;give them ears of corn somewhere else in yard so they go there and leave your lights alone

    Thanks for the suggestions. I thought of throwing peanuts around but figured they would eat those, invite their friends and go for the wires! Interesting dilemma.
