Is there a device or spray that can be placed or sprayed in my engine compartment and underneath to stop squirrels from chewing wires? If so, will it run off of my car battery and be left there so that it will keep squirrels from nesting in my engine compartment too? If there is a product made for this purpose, how effective is this device?
We carry a “sound repeller” and a spray.
BEST CAR ENGINE RODENT REPELLER
and currently have one perfect for you need. Known as our ENGINE COMPARTMENT RODENT REPELLER, it will keep away small animals like mice, rats, squirrels and chipmunks. Most important, it works. It runs off the cars battery too, just like you need.
Basically you’ll wire it directly to your cars battery for power and since it only draws .6 watts, it won’t drain the battery. The average car battery can power our unit for over a year without needing a charge so as long as you’re using your vehicle once every few months, it will function fine and not impact the car’s battery life in any way.
This short video (less than 60 seconds long) shows how the Under-The-Hood Sound Repeller can help:
Our unit features an on/off switch, inline fuse and comes with cable ties so you can secure it to any part of the vehicle where rodents are nesting or chewing. Some people need 2 units so if you’ve had them in the trunk of the car too, plan on placing one there as well.
In most cases, one unit placed in the engine compartment will do the job; just be sure to place it as close to the active areas they’ve been targeting .
BEST ENGINE WIRE AND HOSE SPRAY REPELLENT
If you’re looking for something a bit “easier” to use, get our PEST AWAY SPRAY.
Pest Away is made with all natural organic essential oils and gets mixed with water. It won’t harm any wildlife, insects, birds, pets, etc. but due to it being so concentrated, it makes animals like squirrels “wary” of treated areas.
The feeling of being uneasy and alarmed about the area/treated hoses and other parts of the motor will make them not want to rest or chew where its been applied. This makes Pest Away a great way to naturally repel unwanted pesky animals and insects.
Our 8 oz jar mixes 2 oz per gallon of water and will treat up to 500 sq/ft of plants when treating for deer control.
