I have a friend up in the mountains who had a brand new Chevy Truck. For whatever reason the varmints loved the wiring up in the engine compartment of that truck. It cost a lot of money, not sure if it was covered by insurance, to fix that damage.
This kind of thing is unfortunately a lot more common than most people know.
I just went through as well, living in a rural area...damn mice. got about 15 then they stopped. Seems the heavy summer rains moved them inside. Some others too in the area. The saying goes "if you see 1 mouse, you have 6."
Just used the regular wood and bait traps and set poison up as well. Smart little bastards wouldn't eat the poison. So I mixed some Borax in with some jelly and they took it. Once I saw that those asshole chipmunks got a taste of it too.
But when I saw they got under my truck hood and ate by sprayer hose I was pissed. put some jellied Borax under the hood too. And get this...found a damn dead mouse INSIDE the truck! How it got there, no clue but I 'think' it got in somehow through an air vent, no other way in from the hood. Even the brake pedal bushing was intact.
Neighbor found a whole nest of the little bastards inside his car air filter assembly too! Seems the got in through the main opening under the bumper and made a nice nest. His car was running like crap after he started it up (was sitting for a few weeks ) and he went to change the AF and crapped when he saw the nest. But the jelly Borax does the trick. I found it works on squirrels, chipmunks, possums, and other other unwanted rodents and varmints.
