1) Don't store pet food in the garage.Same issue on my Model Y. Mouse chewed through wiring harness and rear light stopped working. $800 to repair. Any suggestions on how to stop the mice from getting in the garage or getting rid of them? Been parking cars in this garage for 3 years never had a problem before now.
2) Mice will build a nest within a short distance of their food source (they don't like to commute long distances.) Mice don't need additional water beyond the food they eat.
3) Rats will travel further to reach food; rats need a source of water.
4) Mice don't like the scent of peppermint oil or cinnamon.
