I have a mouse problem. It seems an industrious mouse has found a way into my 2010 Prius. At our cabin, I have to leave the car outside overnight (no garage). In the past 6 weeks, I’ve had 2 incidents of a mouse getting into it. The first time, about a cup of birdseed was brought in and stored in the headliner. I heard it rolling around when I went around curves, and upon pulling back a portion of the headliner, was pelted with the birdseed. We were able to get the seeds out (at least I don’t hear it rolling around anymore). The 2nd time, the mouse came in and took the tissues from a box on the front passenger seat and made a cozy nest in the storage area of the trunk. He sure knows his way around the car! Must have read the owners manual.
How is he getting into the car? So far, there’s no damage and we haven’t seen the clever bugger, but we want to repel/discourage him. Any ideas of where to start? We’ve had a number of cars over the years and this is the only one that we’ve had this problem.
Thanks for any insights!
