Wayne, it appears to be the aluminum itself.  I have a old Cyclone fence with aluminum ties to the top rail, and every one of those ties shows tooth marks, some very deep.  And, at least once, the power company has replaced the three-wire feed to my house because, where it passed through some oak branches, a number of the aluminum strands of the bare neutral were completely severed. This results in a reduction in the voltage of 120-volt circuits.

I know rats like plastic.

Only when they get to the bird feeders or chew up a cable.  They seem to
crave aluminum, like power feed neutral cables, and once wreaked havoc on
a fiber optic bundle.

When I filled the feeders today, I emptied an almost empty bag on the
ground.  This squirrel was feasting there later, and let me know that
he wasn't the least bit afraid of the lens at the window.
