Protect Your Car From Rodents

Rats! You can buy the most reliable car on the earth and still find convoluted electrical gremlins, fluid leaks, and even outright failure when rodents take up residence and begin chewing on wiring, hoses, plastic, and other critical car parts. This is especially a risk for cars stored over the winter.

Rodent-inflicted damage is an age-old problem that some observers say is increasing as automakers use more plant-based biodegradable materials to reduce waste. Several class-action lawsuits have been filed against major automakers in recent years alleging that soy-based products were to blame, but these court cases were later dismissed.

Pest control company Hillsboro pest control considers the temptations of tasty materials to be a myth, and instead, it blames rodent biology and their need to constantly chew, thereby preventing their teeth from growing too long. It turns out that feasting on cars is more prevalent than you might think. And a representative from pest control company Orkin told CR that there was a rise during the pandemic, partly because more people were working from home, thereby driving less frequently and having more chances to observe rodents.

Periodically look for signs of furry visitors, such as droppings, urine, scratches, chewed wire, damaged belts, gathered nesting materials, and exposed fiber insulation.

If you suspect that you have a rodent problem, inspect and clean the car outside while wearing protective rubber gloves: Rodents can carry diseases.
