1. Cheap wire often uses cheap plasticisers (like peanut oil) to make
the plastic flexible. This smells like "food" to moles, gophers,
squirrels, etc. They will EAT it!
2. Cheap wire doesn't have the stabilizers to resist UV or ground
water. It will get brittle and crack with age, so you'll have to
repair or replace it. Look for UF or UH class insulations that
are intended for direct burial.
