Rats in the car!
Any advice on how to get rid of a possible rat(s) living in a car? EBMUD recently dug up the streets in our neighborhood, sending the sewer rats scurrying. Our car is parked in the driveway, and since Covid we don’t drive much anymore. Our mechanic just noticed the air filter on our Prius had been gnawed on by rats. We’re not sure if the rat is still in there, but the mechanic advised setting traps just in case. This might be a dumb question, but as someone who knows nothing about cars: do we just put the traps in the cabin of the car at night? What kind of traps are most effective/humane? Has anyone here hired exterminators to inspect their car and deal with any infestations?
