Took my Prius in for maintenance and the mechanic wanted to show me something. Under the hood, mice had stored dog food pellets, dog hair, and other miscellaneous. He said if I don't do something about it, I could be looking at a costly re-wiring, next time I bring it in. We live in the country. I park in the garage, where 2 dogs reside. So a big, bad cat is out of the question. My question is: Is there any old remedy... anything I could cover surfaces with, or something I could keep under the hood that would repel mice.... make them want to stay away? I wonder if parking outside would help. Maybe the dogs are scaring the mice up under the hood? I really don't know what to do. We use mouse traps in the house occasionally, when needed. But I don't want to trap one of my doggie's toes in a trap in the garage. I really am at my wits end as to what I should do. Anyone have any super brilliant ideas? You've helped me with so many other things. THANK YOU!
