A client's car sat peacefully in a garage under a grand old oak tree for about 5 weeks this fall and into winter while they vacationed in a relaxing, warm destination.
Upon return, they noticed while driving the vehicle didn't seem to have its previous vigor when accelerating. They sent first professional diagnosis.
Mice had made a home in the air filter box! Restricting engine air intake. It was fresh bedding from the interior headliner, grass and a few acorns is a grand home!
43% of mammals are rodents.
Rodents survived under the feet of the great dinosaurs that occupied the land we live on. They are keen survivors.
We completely pest proofed our clients garage to prevent this from happening again. Now this structure is rodent free, they plan to purchase a vintage car to occupy the other space.
