Here’s a Nutty Thing About Squirrels
If you have squirrels in your neighborhood you may enjoy watching the furry creatures scamper across utility lines and each other around trees. It seems squirrels have boundless energy and that can be a problem when it comes to your car.
Squirrels have been known to crawl up inside of an engine to seek warmth. While there, their nature is to chew on things like car wires. In some cases this can lead to significant amounts of damage. So what can be done to protect yourself?
Well, leaving your hood open during the day makes your engine less inviting for them but that is not always practical. You can visit an area pet store and ask about foul tasting sprays that will deter the little chompers. If you park in a garage, make sure it is sealed up properly so the animals can “squirrel” their way in.
