    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.

    You just gotta use very small scissors.

    You also have to be really fast....
    I use mothballs to keep out mice in my sleds during the summer, and the squrrels and other rodents out of boat during the winter.. they work great. And if the truck is sitting all you need to do is place a couple on the top of each tire, and a few under the truck.. Dont worry about putting any inside since it will stink and placed properly will keep them far far away from your truck.
