They love engines of all kinds- it's a small, warm, enclosed space.

Got more than one pound of dog chow stuffed there by mice out of my sister's car heater blower cowling. They did that in less than 12 hours. Mitsubishi Spider. Made quite a racket when she first started the blower motor.
I would have laughed like crazy if it shot dog chow out the vents...

A buddy of mine lived on an old farm and parked his car in a barn. His solution was to wet down the engine and sprinkle some cayenne pepper in the nooks and crannies. Seemed to keep the little vistors away. This was after they chewed through some harness wires.

I just sprayed off the winter buildup of acorns off the top of the engine.
Got the same situation here, normally I use compressed air to blow the nuts off the top of the engine. Now that sounds good, doesn't it. I need to do this every six months or so, the rodents are quite efficient...

I've driven a Karmann Ghia 80 miles only to have my buddy say "MAN! that is one HOT engine!".......15 minutes later with the engine out and the fan shroud off some squirrel lost his mother load cache of acorns!

When you work on a country Subie do you have to check for mousetraps first?
I actually found mouse traps in a Sube I bought that had been in storage for 5 years. I didn't get snapped by any of them, but the suckers were armed! Snapped my screwdriver pretty hard when I tapped them with it.

The pepper thing works. I had bird that kept trying to nest on one of the lights on my garage. Every morning for a week I knocked the nest down and every night when I got home the nest was back. Covered the light and garage with cayenne pepper. I watched the bird try to land on it and jump off. No more nest.
