How did I kept my car away from Rats ?
Recently when I changed my house, in apartment parking are Rats started entering my car engine bay area on daily basis fortunately it did’t harm anything but it used to defecate and urinate. I started keeping rat poison more and more rats started coming to eat that ! I learnt that I should not keep poison as that won’t help also if Rat dies inside your car A/C duct then I don’t have to tell the consequences. One day I woke up early as I was about to start for long drive as a routine I unlocked the car and opened the bonnet for checking oil and coolant. For my surprise, a giant Rat was staring at me and it was not ready to move even after I made so much of noise ! even I took a pic of it !
3 years ago I had the same problem in my other car where it damaged my car wiring and it had entered inside the car via A/C duct and it had damaged floor mat as well so this time I was worried and I badly wanted to keep them away. I searched on internet and kept pouch of naphthalene ball in engine bay. Next morning went and checked guess what ? Rat had entered and slept beside naphthalene pouch and defecated its waste !
Then I searched for repellents online I did’t go for 3M (it was costly ) I ordered TRIBAS Pierats Rat Mouse Repellent Spray for Car (200 ml) after reading very few review ! I got my car washed and in the evening I sprayed on engine and tied jelly box which was part of pack inside engine bay ( I tied it to battery bar ).
Its been 15 days now I am not seeing any trace of rats inside my car ! I still have half of the spray left. Planning to spray it again after 2 months. I am very much satisfied with this product and I am happy that my car is saved from rats. You can find the product details below and it is available on amazon India.
