how to keep field mice out of hvac system ducts, have removed 4 from blower fan.
Mice can get into tiny little holes. I have only had one mouse in my truck but I have cats.
A good cat would help,JK Moth balls may help but have odor to them,not as bad as dead rat thoe.
Not much help. These are good size field mice, how are they getting into system.
Black pepper, the finer the better, dollar store stuff, I had a Ford Conversion Van that sat quite a bit and I ran a ring of Black pepper around the rig every month it sat and tossed some over the top of the wheels, I never had any mice get into it. HTH
You can also spray a product called Bitter Apple around and on the vehicle. It's a nontoxic dog repellant that works for keeping other animals away from certain areas. I spray my electrical and telephone cords in my house with it periodically to stop my Maine Coon Cat from chewing on the wires. Works like a charm. You can buy it at your local pet store. HTH. -Jim
Thanks to Js08016 - Jim & tennisshoes. Would still like to know their access point, Was able to block their access to engine airfilter cavity with stiff wire mesh pressure fitted at end of fresh air tunnel at fender well. Hoping a similar barrier for for hvac as well !
To find it your going to have too get it on a lift and some good lighting and look at all the rubber body plugs including this in the front bulkhead and heavily undercoat them, then look for any missing or have holes in them, then the fresh air intake drains you need to shield like you did the others with the mesh. On some rigs you might have to loose the front fenders to gain access. HTH
Thank you for the best answer click! The air intake for the HVAC system is at the bottom of the windshield, on the outside, under the hood. It's the space between the engine and the bottom of the windshield. HTH. -Jim
Again, thank you for your input, and a place to start prevention efforts. Soon as I drop the blower and remove mouse # 5.
