Good thing you got him before he got to chew your wiring or damage something else. My upstairs neighbor who parks next to me leaves trail mix in his car. It has attracted rodents who have been leaving shells on top of my intake manifold. They got under the hood insulation of my CRV & chewed the windshield washer spray hose again. I'm getting some rodent be gone today & putting it all over the driveway where we park to fend them off I hope without hurting his dog. Oh & he wasn't as lucky as you. He found 3 mice running around in back of his Explorer. Can't imagine having to put mouse traps in my car. Edit: I found 3 dead baby mice in the hood insulation this time. I sprayed it up with the mouse be gone & put the crystals on the driveway around the cars.
Same problem happening to my kid's 2013 Honda CR-V. The hood and firewall insulation is all torn up, but (KNOCK ON WOOD) so far no wiring damage. Liquid Fence and other mammal sprays have worked well for me in the garden, and I'm thinking of spraying the blacktop where she parks. Maybe it will produce enough fumes to keep them at bay, without having to actually douse the car with that wonderful rotten egg stuff!
