    They got to my last BMW lease car and chewed the wires. My dealer replaced the bad wires free.

    That's nuts. No, that's a Honda.

    Something is nutty here - by the video looks like guy has his car in the garage - how does the squirrel get in there? Shouldn't the intake end generally right below the windshield have a grill? In my cars the air intake side has/had a grill to prevent large leaves from getting sucked in. Second, woudn't it be cheaper for him to plug the hole in the garage through which the squirrels are getting in? Or perhaps leave nuts outside for the squirrels to get to first?

    Could just be that the squirrels get in when the door is open and then it gets closed and they are trapped inside with nothing to eat with a tasty Honda.

    Last year A momma squirrel took stuffing from lawn furniture. Transferred it to my truck’s engine compartment. Gave birth. And then they ate Wiring.

    We actually had a big 16 passenger van totaled by our insurance company because of squirrels eating the wiring harness.

    It was insane,

    I had no idea this was a thing. I will support capital punishment for offending tree rats.

    I find that the occasional varmint who is problematic will cease and desist if he suffers from lead poisoning.
