Electrical wire in garage


Hi

This is probably a silly question for most of you but what is right way to cover up / get rid the remaining electrical wire?

I tried yanking the cable but it seems very tight and I am afraid of damaging the wall / siding.

Should I just snip the cable as close to the wall as possible on both sides and then caulk it?


Thanks.

There is likely a staple holding it. I would cut it off and stuff it in the hole.
