I've got a chipmunk that has decided to use the top of my supercharger as its dinnertable/toilet. Tired of vacuuming my engine bay and worried it may become more adventurous with the cooler weather and start getting into the wiring or the hvac.
Any one know any tried and tested deterrents?

Good morning


Some good information here.

Take a 5gal bucket, fill it half full of water, lean a board or something for them to climb up to the lip from the ground, float a layer of bird seed on top of the water so that it covers it. Viola, instant chipmunk trap. They go after the seed, don't realize that it is not solid, fall in and can't get back out. Just make sure to empty 'em out asap, it gets ripe fast if you don't :eek:
