Habitat Modification

Reduce food sources that encourage increases in wildlife population.

  1. Remove/modify bird feeders, as they attract rodents.
  2. Remove debris, woodpiles, and places rodents can hide.
  3. Cut grass, rake leaves, etc.

Exclusion and Modification to the Vehicle

  1. Keep the vehicle in a garage rather than outdoors when not in use.
  2. Move the vehicle to a new location.
  3. Move the vehicle more often.
  4. Wash off any salts from the engine as squirrels and other rodents are attracted to salt. Consult a mechanic on proper washing techniques.
