GFCI outlet failure

Ground fault interrupeter outlet

This GFCI outlet stopped working less than a year after I installed it.

It got invaded by some kind of mud daubing insect.

I replaced it with the same type of outlet, but if it happens again I'll have to upgrade it to one of those outdoor outlets with a door covering the sensitive areas.

Might try some of those kiddie outlet covers that keep toddlers from sticking keys and stuff inside, it would be a lot cheaper!
