Intelligent Pest Control for Your Garage
You count on your garage to protect various things while you’re not there. Not only your vehicles, but lawnmowers, snowblowers, bicycles, and ATVs. Plus, garages often act as storage spaces for excess belongings and heirlooms. The last thing you want are rats and mice using your valuable possessions as nesting materials and shelters.
Mice can do serious damage to items in garages that are costly or impossible to replace or repair. And since you probably don’t spend a lot of time in your garage, you might not know until it’s too late.

The Dangers of Mice in the Garage
Mice can cause serious damage to your vehicle. It’s dark and often warm in your engine compartment, and it makes the perfect rodent sanctuary.
So, how do you know rats and mice are living in your car? What damage are they causing while they’re in there? And most importantly, how do you stop them from creating expensive repairs? The good news is that you’re not alone. Modern’s Anticimex SMART technology can help!
Signs of Rodents in Your Car
- Visual sightings of droppings and urine, along with bad smells
- Strange sounds, especially the heater or fan making a rumbling or vibrating noise that indicates a nest in the heater blower motor
- Spotting food sources like acorns, dog food, and bird seed that rodents have brought into your car to eat. Seeing old snacks like French fries in unlikely places
- On occasion, seeing a mouse or rat jump out of or run around in your car
How Can a Rodent Damage Your Vehicle?
The main ways that rodents, usually rats and mice, damage your car are through chewing, nesting, and waste.
Rodents need to frequently chew on things to sharpen their teeth. All rodents have self-sharpening incisor teeth that never stop growing. They will chew through almost anything they encounter, such as:
- Plastic panels
- Power steering lines
Rats and mice need to build nests for shelter. They harvest the nesting material from:
- Hood liner insulation
- Carpet insulation
- Interior upholstery
Common nest locations are:
- Heater blower motors
- Under the center console
- Behind plastic paneling
- Engine compartments
- Air conditioner ducts
Mice defecate and urinate everywhere they go. In addition to a foul smell, this can be dangerous for your health. Mice can spread hantavirus and salmonellosis to humans.
