Yeah we are blessed with plenty of the little darlings here, used to dealing with them - as are our cats, most mornings we are presented with various states of horror as friendly gifts.
Mice and rats are a nightmare!
They have chewed their way through loads of machinery, electrical and everything in between here over the years. Just part and parcel of rural life, despite baiting etc.
Latest episode over winter they decided that they enjoyed tucking into heavy foil lined engine heat shielding, I’ve heard they use it for nesting. They managed to get through an entire tracked machine engine bays worth, then started on parts the wiring loom Luckily we spotted them before it got *really* expensive.
So far they have left the Tesla alone, preferring the piquant taste of German wiring insulation over ‘merican.
