How to Prevent Rodent Damage in Your Vehicle

Rodents can cause a lot of damage to the components under the hood. At our service center at Kia of Fargo, we have seen what rats and mice can do over time. We have a few ways to help you prevent rodent damage in Fargo, ND.

It’s a good idea to invest in rodent-deterrent tape. It looks and smells like normal tape, but it’s treated with high-powered capsaicin, which is super spicy. It will prevent rodents from chewing through electrical wires, harnesses, or anything else that the tape is applied to. You may need to apply the tape liberally to some areas.

You should also look at using wire mesh throughout different areas of your vehicle. The mesh can prevent rodents from entering your ventilation and intake systems. The mesh can be placed around rubber hoses and wiring harnesses, too. If they cannot get to the various materials, then, they cannot eat through them.
