Hi Guys,

A strange one, but I seem to have a mouse or something similar camped out in my S15! and the little buggered has helped its self to my golf umbrella’s handle in the boot and has also got into the front and chewed a hole in the back seats! :mad: I think I must of picked up from the field at JAE..


Gave the car a good clean out (and vac up the poo!) on Sunday, so hope it’s got out, but I might put something in the car to catch it, so has anyone got some ideas on what I can use to maybe catch it?

Dame that a bit odd. I would put a mouse trap in the boot, maybe remove the caperts ect from the boot first.

You could get some mouse baits. They come in little bags or small blocks. Just make sure you find it after it dies.

I reckon a trap would be best. Mice and other rodents have a nasty habit of crawling somewhere inaccessible when they feel bad...

Yeah I wouldn't poison it. Just get a trap in the boot or rear seats.

Or you could borrow a cat lol

All the cat would do is sleep on the front seat and put fur everywhere!

I always think about how my S15 would make a nice home for a mouse over the winter!

Trap sounds like a good plan, you do not want a dead rodent stinking your car out.

Good luck

My car is so clean you could eat off it.

I found some mouse droppings the other day on the garage floor and after reading this I got a bit paranoid but all seems well in the car... Hope you find it mate. Dead or alive lol. At least you know it's out then...

Ive got a simlar problem but mines a spider that constantly makes webs under my car near the right rear wheel, any ideas on getting rid of it? I never see it but the webs keep coming back after I clean them in that same area.
