Dirt and dust can damage your car’s paint job and can cause rust to form. Make sure you wash your car regularly and use a good quality car wax to protect the paint.

Remember these key tips:
- Mothballs are a non-toxic way to protect your car and home wiring from pesky pets like mice, rats, and squirrels
- Ultrasound devices may repel or deter animals from entering your car or home. Typically these sounds aren’t audible to humans and can realy distract an animal on the hunt to destroy your home wiring.
- Mesh: using mesh to keep rats and mice out of your engine bay is the first step to keeping them from eating your wires.
- Special Rodent Tape: this is a spicy kick of capsaicin — the chemical that naturally occurs in hot peppers and gives spicy food its burn. Rats and mice are sure to avoid this on the second go around. .
