How to Keep Critters From Crawling in Your Car
From snakes and woodchucks to raccoons and rats, all kinds of animals can get into cars.
Many drivers have been surprised by what they find in their vehicles when they are not inside.
One Miami driver found a boa constrictor living under the hood of his Cadillac. Another driver found a woodchuck inside the engine. And one driver in Hawaii found roaches inside their BMW.
Animals as mean and big as raccoons can get under the hood too. One driver was surprised to find a rabbit living in her car.
Car expert Lauren Fix told Inside Edition the reason creatures love cars, especially the engine area, is because of the warmth.
“They love it under here. It's safe, it's warm, you can have babies, you can store your food. It's like home,” she said.
Fix said that sometimes they chew up wires because they are “very sweet.” She added that sometimes the wires are made with soy or eucalyptus, so the animals think it's a great snack.
Fix said that in order to keep critters from entering the car, drivers should not park under trees.
She also said not to park where there are a lot of pine cones. And “if you can park in a garage, obviously that is a safer place to be.”
