Hi Chris: Ahhh. I've also been told about chili powder! Yes! Sprinkling it around the carport under the engine along with baking soda (I was told).
Would the more powerful the capsaicin be better, you think? As long as it doesn't smell like bell peppers, I'm ok with chilis.
Ta very much
P.S. I really like your tag line quotation!

This happened to my sister-in-law’s van about 10 years ago - but the damage ($1000 - all the wiring, belts and hoses!) was caused by squirrels. They solved it by parking the car over a cookie tray liberally sprinkled with capsicum powder which they bought at a garden store. Might work for mice as well. “Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind.
