Do You Have A Rodent Problem In Your Car?

Do you have a rodent problem in your car? If you do you will likely know about it. Tell-tale signs include the smell of rat urine, droppings and mechanical problems with the car. Sometimes the engine will not start, or warning lights come on unexpectedly. Brake lines can be chewed, leading to dangerous brake failure. Once rodents have been in your car, chances are they will come back. They follow the scent which has been left behind. This can lead to repeated, expensive, episodes of damage. Rodents target cars because they can offer the three things they need in order to survive. These are warmth, shelter and food. Electric cars are particularly vulnerable to rodent problems as the charging battery generates warmth which rats and mice can feel from a distance. This makes a lovely snug place to make a nest. Food crumbs and empty crisp packets will attract them by smell.

Start by blocking holes in garages, clearing out cars of rubbish and pressure washing any areas where rodents have been previously. These are the best ways to start preventing rodent problems in your car. Many people find that these measures are not enough to keep rats mice at bay: in this situation The Grid Guard is ideal. Working like an electric fence on the floor, it creates a boundary which rats and mice simply will not cross. In tests, they often did not even set foot on the tiles. Despite this, humans can walk across with shoes on and you can drive your car straight across. The tiles work in the rain and are designed to last for many years. They are more environmentally friendly than rat poison which can enter the food chain and kill top predators.

The system runs off mains electricity and does not require any special training to fit. Please contact us for availability.
