The Best Ways to Keep Rats and Mice out of Your Car

1. Keep the Area Clear: Both the car and it's surrounding should be kept clean and free of clutter.

2. Eliminate Food Sources: Try to avoid spilling snacks in the car and vacuum between and beneath the seats often to avoid attracting unwanted guests.

3. Use Light to Deter Nesting: Keeping the garage light on or the car hood open might discourage nesting.

4. Use Repellent Fragrances e.g. Peppermint oil, WD-40 etc and Electronic Deterrents.

5. Block Points of Entry: Check air intake vents and the wheel well vents and close it with wire mesh.
