Animals Could Be Lurking Under Your Hood

Domestic Service Ann Arbor

With summer here, many of us are taking our vehicles out of storage, only to find uninvited visitors under the hood. Motorists have found opossums, squirrels and even rats living under the hoods of their cars.

Aside from the shock of finding a rodent living in your vehicle, the damage they can cause can be a major headache. They’ll eat your wiring and even your air filter! 

Rodents love newer cars because the wiring tastes like desert. Why? In some newer cars, wiring insulation is made from a soy-based material, while older cars typically used petroleum-based material. Even when they’re discovered, some rodents show no desire to leave.

How can you keep rodents away?

You can use mint or lavender to keep pests away. They hate the smell. Spray the aromas lightly on your engine, inside your car and on the wheel wells.
