So i got to school today and noticed little pieces of **** laying on my seat beside a bag of chips hahahaha, so i figured it was a mouse inside my car, i opened the hood when i got home and it has a bunch of accorns stored beside my battery, My question is how did it manage to get inside my car, and how can i get rid of it???
i did take apart the interior earlier today and there is no sign of them living inside the car, i am keeping it in the garage tonight but that is not always an option, i also bought some rodent repellent to spray around the car and hopefully parking in a different place deters them.
SAME **** HAPPENED TO ME BOUGHT A MINI SHAMWOW PUT IT IN THE GLOVE BOX FOR WHEN I NEEDED IT. GOT OFF WORK ONE DAY PUT MY SAFETY GLASSES IN THE GLOVE BOX AND MY SHAMWOW WAS TURNED INTO A RATS NEST BEFORE I EVEN GOT TO USE IT
opinions are like a$$holes everybody has one so fix your car the way you like
Don't poison them! They could eat the poison and then die somewhere in your car that could be difficult to get to. You probably won't know they're there until they start to smell. I've heard around the blower area is popular.
You're going to want to wire off any places they can get in. I've heard of through the firewall, but I'm not sure exactly where it might be. Make sure the wire is small enough. Mice and other rodents can usually fit through any hole big enough to get their head through.
If you put down traps you might want to put an old floor mat under it in case there's a mess. Sticky traps will probably just make a horrible mess.
Live trapping means you have to release the rodent. Mice will come back even if they're left a mile away.
Probably one of the better sites I've found about it so far, but I honestly haven't looked much into it.
As a side note, a customer came in a few days ago with his girlfriend. He walked out to do something to her car and poked his head back in to ask if anyone had a camera. I said I did. We walked out and there was a long dead rat that had gotten caught by a belt. His head was stuck. Customer removed it by the tail, but it left the head in. It was actually funny when it happened (the rat probably didn't suffer much at all) but the smell was horrible.

This actually happened to a friend of mine. He got a honda accord for free. One that had been standing around for like 5 years. He fixed it up but there was a terrible rat smell in it. He stripped the interior and there were no sign of the rats. When looking in his heater core, he found a nest of dead rats there. He replaced his heater core and the smell was gone. Definately check that out man
