Why do rodents love wires?
Some victims of rodent invasion claim that it’s because some automakers used soy-based wire coverings. Some manufacturers have even been sued over the issue.
Regardless of the wire coverings, rodents are drawn to finding shelter where they can. Homeowners and car owners alike have wrestled with this issue for years.
The damage caused by rodents can be costly, and although some repairs may be covered by your car insurance, they typically aren’t covered by your car’s warranty.
If your car has an infestation, you’re at risk of contracting the diseases that the rodents carry. Rodents such as deer mice, rice rats, and cotton rats can transmit various viruses. These viruses are contained in urine, droppings, and nesting materials.
