Just hoping nothing comes back for more chewing.

I also leave the light on at night which brightens up the whole car port.. hopign that keeps them away as well.
The traps have failed to catch anythign yet..
there is also a box of poison that they can run into chew on.
Hope that works for you. Is the poison box something that dogs or small kids might possibly tamper?

you need to speak to a Pest Control Specialist. They can place boxes (with poisoned food) in various locations on your grounds (not in the car...). The boxes have a special opening so only rodents can get to the food, cats & dogs will not.

This will give the critters an ample supply of (easy target) food and will eat it, tell their buds and even bring some back to the nest. Sadly, their tail and tale will have a tragic ending.

By doing this you'll divert the mice from the bad food supply (your wires) and to the good food supply... stuff that smells like cheese! (yet sadly it will be their last meals).

I went through this last spring. Not only getting into the vehicles, but one found a way to get into the house and enjoyed the use of my fiber-glass insulation as a guest house.

Few boxes placed strategically outside, along with mouse tack strips and we caught the little feller. The boxes have a lot of nibble action on them... but no more mice nests in the engine bays or mice in the insulation.

Good luck!

Yeah they placed a poison box just outside
Still haven't caught anything with the traps.
2 traps were triggered bait was eaten but the rodent got away.
