I have a car problem that I’ve had for sometime. I park my car out front of my house. My garage is beyond full, 99% of which is full of the lady friend’s stuff. Literally, one can’t move in the garage.
I’ve had three times over the last several years that rodents have gotten under the hood. I assume they climb up from underneath, or maybe climb up one of the tires. However they get under the hood, they do. And they chew wires and other things too. I’ve had over four figures of repairs combined.
I wonder if anyone might know of any product (spray, etc?) to keep them out? I’ve heard mothballs around the tires, and laundry dryer sheets work. I’ve tried them both, and while the critters do their destruction, it’s over time, which is the only good news.
If you have any product recommendations to keep critters out, I’d sure appreciate hearing it or them.
A friend of mine has had some luck with the Rid A Rat pulsing LED lights, small battery operated. She put one on the ground under the car and another in the engine compartment. She was dealing with pack rats. This isn’t a slam dunk in terms of other people’s experience, but it seems to have worked in this one case.
I’ve used Tester’s stuff now around the garage doors and perimeter for a while now. Once a month after it looked like something was chewing at the bottom of my side door seals. I forget sometimes but I haven’t had a problem anyway. Worth a try and long lasting. Keeps the elephants away too as they say.
