Has this car been dredged up from a moss filled lake? No, in this case a rodent has made a nest around and on top of the vehicle's battery.
The problem with this is that they can cause a terrible odor in the car as well as chew though wires, hoses, and insulation and can wreak havoc on how the car drives and performs.
In this case this car is driven to the country and left to sit for weeks at a time, giving our furry friends a chance to set up a nice home.
Believe it or not we see this a lot even in our little corner of Suburbia. Vehicles make great places for a nest or even a place to hide food.
Moving your vehicle every few days may seem like an inconvenience, but it can possibly save you hundreds of dollars by preventing would be nest builders from moving in.
