Reducing Car Damage From Rodents With These Two Tips

Have you ever seen a mouse or rat in your garage? You might think that it's not that big of a deal as long as they stay out of the house, but rodents can cause a lot of damage if they get under the roof of your car. Rodents love the shelter and ample chewing material that's near your engine, but they can do serious damage to your wiring. Here are a few ways that you can discourage or even eliminate the pests.

Put peanut butter in humane traps around your garage. Mice and rats love peanut butter, and you can drastically cut down on the number of pests in your garage with this method. As a word of caution, though, you might want to try another method if you have small pets since dogs love peanut butter, too.

You can also put a type of electrical tape that's been infused with capsaicin around your electrical components. Capsaicin is super spicy, so pests are less likely to want to sharpen their teeth on anything covered with it.
