    Default PUT AWAY the car for the winter

    If you have mice or rats or even pack rats they can be a big mess in the car if in a garage you can have an electric mouse zapper it put out sound that keeps them away i have 3 and have never seen a mouse near my garage you juct plug them in and forget it i also have to store one car out side so i put tin over mu aircleaner hole and a peace of tin on the inside of the aircleaner and tin cans over the tail pipes may have to find cans that fit tight or wire them on some people say use moth balls but it make your car smell for a long time don't do it once saw a kid try to eat a moth ball we got it out of his mouth before he could could get it down. i put on a very heavy car cover for the out side car and a lighter onfor the inside car putting the car on jack stands may also keep out the mice spray pam cooking spray on the jack stands after the car is up some say will keep mice off spray them often it is the same idea as putting grease on your bird feeder pole to keep squirrels from climbing it. hope this may help someone.

    Some do. But they definitely affect guinea pigs and hamsters.
