Who's living in my jeep and what should I do?
 
Hi, I have a fairly weird problem for a car owner...jeep owner. Three weekends ago when we changed the sparkplugs and pcv valve, I discovered a nest in the engine compartment on the left side, on top of the engine. I cleaned it all out...blew the engine compartment out, pulled out all the sticks, leaves, fur etc..

Here we are three weeks later, I get under the hood and its their again. Ugh! I have an attached garage, but at work I am parked near wilderness. Short of propping my hood every morning and night to see if something is living in their, I wonder if anyone knows of a remedy?

Also could this have caused any problems I should look for?

Think this is a prank...check out my pics!

Yep I'd say rodent as well. Such as a mouse/rat. They like warmth.. I remember finding a nest nested into the tractors engine with a baby mouse in it.. Although that nest looks really big for a mouse/rat. Maybe its a bigger species of rodent as Svenska said.

The type of sticks that you are finding do you see the same stuff where you live or where you park at work? That is the key to finding out where your rodents problem is being created

I wish it was Charlie Sheen...At least I wouldn't be afraid of him chewing on the wires... As for where I park, I work/park right next to a golf course. If you check out my photos..http://s1139.photobucket.com/albums/...ered93/Dustie/

you can see the trees. I am almost positive "its" getting in while I am parked for 9 hours a day....but how do I stop the little s.o.b.?

Short of putting mouse traps or poison under my hood? Hmm I wonder if some type of pheromone (dear pea) would stay effective on engines... lol

Why don't you just park somewhere else? or is there no where else to park?

when you get to work, place a cat under your hood...but don't feed it.
