How To Keep Rodents Out Of Your Car


How To Keep Rodents Out Of Your Car Cars can make ideal nests for rodents during the winter. It’s important to stop them before they cause expensive damage. Start by spraying your repellent on the outside of your car. You can make a repellent by mixing half a cup of dish soap
with a tablespoon of hot sauce and one quart of water. Reapply this spray often as it will wash off while you drive. You can also use hot pepper for spraying. Do
not apply where odors may enter your car. Keep the inside of your car clean and crumb free. Spray ammonia around your car to ward off rodents And place traps nearby to catch them. Avoid snap traps and poisons if you have pets. Avoid ineffective and potentially toxic methods like dryer sheets and mothballs. Consider calling a mechanic to protect the wiring in your car.

  1. dryer sheet do work and keep your stored car smelling nice. moth balls under a stored car, not it it! help greatly too.

  2. my dad always left the hood open on trucks and cars when parking them in a garage and never had a mouse in any of them. remember mice don't like open areas.

  4. I've started spritzing the tires with Spearmint oil at night, after engine smoke and finding evidence of a rat's nest under the hood. Rodents generally enter cars through tires and hate mint. The mint scent does enter the car, but there are worse things one could smell.

  5. They are not just moving in during cold months. Car makers have been using food-based materials since about 2000. Here is a website where you can check if your car is on the list (and it probably is): synlube.com/IncredibleEdibleCar1.htm

  6. I painted all of the wires and wire harnesses and wire connectors in a thin coating of TAR-based 'Rubberized ASPHALT UNDERCOATING', using small hand brushes. I don't know of anything that likes to eat TAR, so that coating will probably keep mice from nibbling on the wires. But it stinks like raw petroleum that comes out from the ground usually does, so its not a nice smell at all. Still, its better than having damage done to the car's wiring ( a 2012 Toyota Camry ).

  7. never had this issue ever till my newest car supposedly has soy based plastics.. its horrible brand new car and its getting eaten up..

  8. The rat mat is an exciting new product designed to repel rodents. https://youtu.be/j61JfwKK9t4
