  4. I've started spritzing the tires with Spearmint oil at night, after engine smoke and finding evidence of a rat's nest under the hood. Rodents generally enter cars through tires and hate mint. The mint scent does enter the car, but there are worse things one could smell.

  5. They are not just moving in during cold months. Car makers have been using food-based materials since about 2000. Here is a website where you can check if your car is on the list (and it probably is): synlube.com/IncredibleEdibleCar1.htm

  6. I painted all of the wires and wire harnesses and wire connectors in a thin coating of TAR-based 'Rubberized ASPHALT UNDERCOATING', using small hand brushes. I don't know of anything that likes to eat TAR, so that coating will probably keep mice from nibbling on the wires. But it stinks like raw petroleum that comes out from the ground usually does, so its not a nice smell at all. Still, its better than having damage done to the car's wiring ( a 2012 Toyota Camry ).
