Sciuridae ... grrrrrrrrrr!

Apparently, squirrels enjoy feeding on engine harnesses. :frowning:

Our Tundra is down for the count . $6,000 ++ in damages.

I’m not going to do any more adulting today.

My issues, and there are many, come from field mice rather than squirrels. That definitely sucks!

I used to suffer a lot of mouse damage, until some neighbor around here let their cat roam around the neighborhood at night. Have not had an issue in several years now! Trade off is cat prints on my cars, but fair trade.

You need to get a new pet … I hear these animals feast on squirrels and give some tender love to engines too.

Damn, that’s some damage. Sorry to hear it Alisa. Hope you figure out a way to get rid of them. Personally, I like the snake idea

Yes… we fixing Sean’s (my husband) ‘Baby Boy’, fer shur .

Wish I had a better picture. Dirty working truck. Oh well, that’s how they are supposed to
be in the real world, right? lol

Yeah, apparently Toyota and most other major manufacturers have been making engine harnesses with insulation made with a SOY product that attracts rodents even more than usual. Crazy Environmental crap.

Oh well… we are going to have to either drop Irish Spring soap shavings all over the engine every couple of months, or spray with a Peppermint oil based spray to repel those nasty buggers.
If that doesn’t work, I guess I’ll get in some shooting practice after all. :stuck_out_tongue:
:gun: <- that isn’t exactly what mine looks like, but ya’ll get it. haha
