Thread: rodent nests

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Default rodent nests

    Since my 2002 Silverado is used for towing exclusively, it sits for months at times. Last year I happened to open the hood and found a nest at the firewall which was a mess with the insulation, branches,leaves,etc. Is there some repelant item I can use.

    Pellets. You could find them at a hardware store.

    A poison is gonna kill them 4 sure..If your cat/dog gets one that has the poison in its system, good bye pet. Also they are gonna crawl up somewhere and die, leaving a rotten stinking body..just my .02...Good Luck..

    Rodents are a pain, and it doesn't have to be just vehicles that sit for months. My 97 pickup had a nest in the air filter box, I was driving it everyday at the time.

    Dryer sheets are popular in the RV crowd for keeping mice out, apparently they work quite well.
    When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.
