Mice In Car

Index

 

 

Damage to vehicles by mice and their many cousins can be considerable. Gnawing wires, ripping out insulation for nesting materials, or stock piling caches of nuts and other treasures in car and truck engines can create havoc on some of man's most sophisticated transport technology and cause a significant amount of damage resulting in huge financial loss. This is especially true if you live in a rural area.

Rarely used vehicles are not the only ones that inspire mice’s thoughts of habitation. A brand new car owner found that furry critters were apparently as excited as she was about her brand new car. In less than 24 hours they managed to destroy much of the wiring.

After the vehicle had been repaired with the wiring having been replaced or fixed, five months later it happened again. The owner now has a small electronic deterrent device that sends out signals warning away mice.
Why Are They in There?
The reason they seek an unnatural habitat under a hood is that it provides a dark, warm, secure place to hide.

A mouse can be annoying where mice can be a bigger problem! Getting rid of mice can be done in many ways such as the use of traps that kill or catch and poisons. Controlling mice in and around your home must be taken seriously as they can introduce illnesses to your family as well as transfer fleas to pets.
