Keeping Your Car Safe From Rats and Mice

At Turner Kia, we want you to drive a vehicle that works whenever you need it to. To help accomplish that goal, it may be necessary to take steps to guard against rodent damage. Rats and mice have been known to chew through wires and build nests inside of engines.

The good news is that there are steps you can take to stop this type of damage from occurring. One tip is to use electrical tape that is coated with an especially spicy substance. While it doesn't look or smell any different to people, it will taste like a bowl of chili to the rodent who tries to chew it.

Another step that you can take is to put wire mesh around any wires. The rodents won't be able to chew through the mesh or find it appealing to try and get past the physical barrier created.
