Is the intake hole in the 2015 fender rodent proof?

One winter, we had my Mom's Mercury here (twin to the Taurus at the time) and found about a 1/2 pound of nesting material and dog food in the air filter housing.
Anyone here know if the 2015 GT has rodent proofed this access to the airbox with a grill or something similar?
Our Mustang is in storage in the garage until Spring, so that is why I am curious about this.................thanks in advance!

No car is "rodent proof"... But there are ways to deter the little critters.

I laid down a dryer sheet inside each wheel, and I hear that helps as well........as to our cat, strictly an indoor kind of kitty.
A few winters ago, when we had our F 150, the little buggers got into a bag of dog food we had stored in the garage, and then took it into the inside of the hood, between the hood and the inside metal strength liner. They put enough dog food in there, that every time we opened the hood, the dog food would rattle back toward the windshield. It sounded a little like a BIG rain stick......

Easy,
Spread Moth flakes under the car, No mice, No cockroaches, no problems.
If your garage floor is concrete you can draw a chalk line around the car if you have an ant problem. Believe it or not, ANT'S will not cross a chalk line. If you do not have an ant problem you can skip this.

I use "Mouse Magic" look Amazon/Agway/feed store.

In honesty I use a combo of spearmint/peppermint oil on cotton balls replaced 1x month. Same active ingredient but cheaper. I did read reviews online and like dryer sheets there are pretty mixed reviews as to if it works or not. I live in the woods with lots of critters and have not had any damage (and used to) since using this. It's been 5+ years for me.

bonus of smelling like mint!

I bought mice poison, placed them in the garage where the mice/voles were coming in. I used to go through a bunch but recently not so much.
