The auto industry has recently begun to use a new soy based wiring insulation in the engine wiring of many cars. It was supposed to be a big step forward in reducing the plastic wire insulation that has been used in automobiles. However, drivers have been noticing with increasing frequency that small rodents such as mice, chipmunks and squirrels have been having a field day under your hood. Not only is the engine compartment nice and warm but it now offers a smorgasbord of good eating. Yes! They are under your hood gnawing away at the seemingly delicious wiring insulation and sooner or later you’re going to have a major and costly issue.
One customer that phoned recently has found a cure that she swears by…..fox urine. She has found that by spraying fox urine on and around the wiring under the hood and on the car tires that she has all but eliminated the annoying pests that were literally eating her car. So, whether your car sits on your driveway or in your garage…this is a case where an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure….or should I say….available in 8oz or 16oz’s of cure!
