Car Creatures: Wildlife May Be Lurking Under the Hood

There could be creatures living inside your car and you don’t even know it. One motorist recently found an opossum in their car, while another found squirrels living under the hood of their vehicle. Even when they were discovered, some of the animals showed no intent of leaving.

After you drive your car and park it, the engine is going to remain warm for some time and that’s just what animals are looking for — a warm and cozy place to spend the night or even build a nest, but there are methods you can follow to stop that from happening.

You can use a scent made of mint or lavender to keep the pests away. Simply spray the aromas lightly on the engine, inside the car and in the wheel well. If this fails, please call Cloud to help eliminate the problem.

Rodents love new cars in particular because they think the wiring tastes good. In an effort to go green, some car companies are wrapping their wiring with soy. Soy is like dessert for rodents!

Aside from the shock of finding animals living in your car, they can cause giant headaches. They can get into the air filter area, eat the filter and make a nest, where they can stay safe and cozy.
