I am new to the forum, so hi to all!
What brings me here is a problem with mice in the car and I just dont know how they get in. Its an i30 Estate, 63 reg.
A couple of weeks ago I noticed sponge by the drivers pedals and since then I have been trying to trap, poison and humanely remove mice. Poison was a mistake as one has died in the air vents under the front seats.
Traps have removed about 8 of them. I know at least some were resident as I parked overnight at a station car park and something ate the poison. But I have removed 8 and cant believe they are all living there.
I put an ultrasonic repeller for a 4000sqft house in the car and still caught mice. I have fitted another under the bonnet.
There are plenty of droppings above the cabin air filter and looking up there I can see daylight so thats where the fresh air is drawn in, but I cant see how the mice are getting in.
If anyone has ideas where they may be getting in I would be grateful for any advice. They have chewed the engine cover sponge to bits and seems they were nesting underneath there until i removed it. They have chewed all the sponge hose covers.
I think the only way they can get in is the fresh air in. But not sure where that is.
Any help and advice appreciated!
