Wife saw a mouse, this is what I found, what is it?

Recommended Posts

Wife saw a mouse come out of the engine bay when I back out of the carport. Investigated the next day and this is what I found.

Any idea what it is and where it may have come from? Apparently it was building a nest under the engine trim cover.

I checked the hood insulation, it's intact. The white stuff looks like batting, have no idea where it came from It was clean and snow white, no evidence of mouse droppings or urine anywhere. I'm just concerned that maybe it came from inside the car. We don't have anything in the area that has the white batting. I guess for now it's a mystery.

My engine was covered with about a 5 gallon bucket of fresh grass clippings along with a lot of the hood liner and foam engine cover. I thought it was pretty amazing they didn't gnaw on any wires. My guess on the white stuff: Do you have any patio furniture cushions stored in your garage for the winter??

That could be some gnawed up nylon rope. My garden tractor had that stuff in it after a winter one year. I keep a critter chaser ultrasonic device plugged in now in the garage at all times. That has worked for me.

Course the dog is chewing his toenails down to the nubs, but hey! no mice.
