Before the Bolt, I had a Volt for 6 years. In that time I had to take the car in twice for damage done to the high voltage wires by mice. After the second incident, I undertook several measures to make sure the mice know they weren’t welcome. So with the new Bolt, I wanted to make sure I’m on top of it from the start. I park inside a garage. Last night I left my hood open (mice like nice dark places), sprayed the wires with some organic spray stuff I got on amazon and also added peppermint essential oil that they are supposed to hate. This morning I found an entire nest of tissues and droppings in there! It wasn’t there yesterday, so they evidently like my organic spray deterrent and peppermint oil. Today I added a plug in high frequency noise maker with intermittent lights. A friend suggested applying hot sauce to the wires and the internet says they hate Irish spring soap. How do I figure out which ideas are rubbish, like the organic deterrent I bought, and which really work?
