How to keep Mouse-Out™ of cars
Rodent Defense Vehicle Protection
Rodent infestation can cause headaches for RV and car owners. From pesky squirrels, rats, mice raccoons, and other creatures of the night that want to make your automobile cabin or under its hood they’re home!
Once there, they can cause severe damage to the vehicle’s components.
This is a problem that has made car manufacturers the target of lawsuits. These lawsuits claim that the soy-based covering used by many automakers is enticing to rodents and increases the likelihood of infestation.
The soy-based coatings are a perfect chew toy for rodents, providing excellent nesting material, and a near-endless supply in a warm, hidden spot. If you’re a mouse, it’s the greatest thing ever. But if you’re an owner waking up to a severed fuel line, it’s a little less enjoyable.
Maybe Soy-Based Wiring Is Too Eco-Friendly?
They are chewing wiring covers more often because auto manufacturers have switched from using a petroleum-based plastic to cover the wiring with a vegetable-based type of plastic,the move was part of the car industry’s green movement.
In January 2016, a lawsuit filed against Honda claimed the soy-based wiring was irresistible to rabbits. Later that year, a similar lawsuit was filed against Toyota. In July 2017, both Hyundai and Kia were sued for using soy wiring.
In each case, the automaker was accused of concealing the problem and/or refusing to fix the issue under warranty.
However, regardless of whether wires are covered in soy-based materials, it’s an established fact that rodents are drawn to them. RV, Boats, and car owners alike have wrestled with this issue for years.
The damage caused by rodents can result in costly repairs. These repairs typically aren’t covered by your car’s warranty.
If your car has an infestation, you’re at risk of contracting the diseases that the rodents carry. Rodents such as mice, rice rats, and cotton rats can transmit various hantaviruses. These viruses are contained in urine, droppings, and nesting materials, and they can be fatal to humans.
Rodents Nesting In Your HVAC Unit?
An air conditioner is a perfect place for a mouse because the air ducts contain materials they can use to build suitable nests. They will chew on whatever they can find. When they begin to feast on HVAC electrical wiring, your home’s safety is compromised. Chewing through a wire can lead to an electrical fire and a damaged HVAC system. When rodents find their way into your ductwork and make nests or leave droppings behind, tiny fecal spores are swept along by the force of heated and cooled air moving through the ducts. These spores make their way into your home and contaminate the air quality.
So how do you avoid expensive repairs? Prevention is key.
