[Market-farming] Heating Cable

I have used Wrap on company's Gro- quick cables. You can get them from Peaceful Valley. The 48 ft loop sells for $32 which is at least three times more than it is worth. I used 14, 48ft and a couple 96 ft loops on insulated benches to germinate seeds. I bought mine from Parks Seed Wholesale 15 years ago, I don't think they sell them anymore. Cables work but the warmth attracts field mice for miles around who will chew up your plants... Bob.

I'm thinking of using heating cable under row cover hoops in the 
hoophouse as a safeguard against below freezing temps later in the 
season. (Like when starting tomatoes)

heating cable doesn't get mentioned often.

Anyone have any experience with it or opinions for or against? Or 
about the practicality of this idea?
