Unwanted Guests...

Anyone have a fool proof way of keeping mice out of the car over the winter? I removed 3 large nests from mine so far and there has got to be one more that I just can't find (I can smell it). I would like to avoid having them move in again this winter...

Poison baits under the nose of of the car. I went to sell my v6 back in january of last year. Popped the hood for the potential buyer, and there was a MOUSE NEST on the manifold. After that, i stored my gt with bait traps under the hoid, and near the tires. Never had problems since. Or, buy a cat.

Haha.
+1 on the poison and the cat.
Snakes like mice also...

You might try one of those electronic devices that drive rodents away.

Foolproof?
If any of us could come up with a "foolproof" mousetrap... It would make you a Gazillionaire!!!

Bet the wife or girlfriend will jump at the opportunity to have a live snake eater, slithering around the garage.

Put decon out in a safe place year round. It's pricey at first, but if you keep it out all the time, you won't have any. Those little bastards can total a car quickly.

I found a mouse snuggled on my sc a few years ago. Crank up and a few revs and I never found him again.

I have since mouse proofed the garage door so no more will enter. Exclusion is much easier than trapping or baiting.

Sounds really stupid. But go to your laundry room and grab the box of Fleecy fabric softener sheets. Put them all around. In the trunk, glove box, under the seats, under the hood. We do this in our RV, & in the 66 every winter. I've had mice in the garage. But, never in the car, and the RV stays outside year round. Just beware.. The smell from them can be pretty over powering in the spring.

2nd the mothballs. When I was at college in Kansas I took the '66 with me. When I went home at Christmas the first year I didn't do anything. Got back to college, popped the hood to reconnect the battery and found a mouse crawling across the cowl. Put some traps down, ended up getting mommy, daddy, and baby mouse. The next few years I parked it in a friend of a friend's barn (in use, full of hay, lots of mice) and he told me put mothballs in it. Got back and never a mouse or nest in sight.
