went to check my oil the other day, only to discover a rat had eaten part of my under hood insulation! After whining about it to my sister, she told me her horror story. Not only did mice eat her insulation, they ruined her brand new Honda CRV. It came to a head when they got into the interior and engine. Imported acorns, where it ended up sticking her throttle on, and almost caused her to wreck. So now every night I have to spray wheel wells and under the hood with pine sol to keep out the rodents. So far no new damage. Might have to put some hardware cloth in a few places as well. It happens in back country areas that have had recent fires nearby.
