Mice!

So I went to pull my 2000 GT out of winter storage today and found out that apparently mice decided that the interior was the perfect place to live. Needless to say, I've got a pretty huge mess to clean up now. Anyone have any tips for me? Looks like I'm going to have to replace carpet, floormats, etc. Just hoping they didn't get into the wiring.

That sucks man. I hate them little bingo bastards!

I've always heard that putting cotton balls soaked in peppermint oil would keep them away. Not sure how true that is though.

When I park mine for winter I scatter those sticky traps all around the car and garage walls.

Hope you get everything lined out soon so you can enjoy it.

My only suggestions, wear face mask, nitrile gloves and long sleeves and sorry, my daughter had the same problem, inspect all areas of the car for possible entry including under the car

I use the mint oil and it's solved my mice problem,,,commercially available as Mouse Magic? but the homemade one is cheaper. I will say that if you read Amazon reviews it works for 50% only. Others swear by dryer sheets with the same 50% success rate.

I use a blend of peppermint/spearmint oils with 12 or so drops on a cotton ball it lasts for one month. This is in CT with my unattached garage at the edge of the woods.

sorry.

to make you smile a bit they would nest on the cabin air filter in my Tacoma.

My advice is to move to Florida...that way you never have to store your car for winter! 😂

Yes, in Florida you only have to worry about alligators and snakes resting under your car.

True but the snakes dont eat wires and leave nasty poop and pee nests in your car and if you lower it enough the gators will not fit under it! 😂
