I store my Cherokee inside a pole barn during the summer months. Wasn't in there for more than a couple weeks when the Rats started chewing up the cloth cover over the battery.

I popped open the hood and hung a very bright LED shop light from it, leaving the hood open. It was an experiment on my part, as I've heard that Rats don't light bright lights. Anyway, it worked. Never saw any evidence of Rats being around for the rest of the summer.

Rodents hate the smell of Irish Spring soap
Works like a charm
Thanks for the tip !

From now on when I wash my vehicles there will be a bar of Irish Spring in the car wash bucket.

When I'm done I'll coat my driveway with what's leftover.

I'm also going to tie-wrap some drier sheets where the wind blows under my hood.

Little bastards.
