Yardley, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/12/2017 -- When it starts to get colder out, the experts at Big Oak Citgo see an influx of customers with rodent problems. Rodents like rats, mice, and squirrels find their way into vehicles to stay warm, which can cause serious issues for the owner of the vehicle. Some car manufacturers use soy or other bio-based ingredients for their wire insulation so these pesky creatures can make a meal out of the wiring harnesses.

Occasionally, rodents chew through wiring to gain access to an automobile, but in most cases, they enter through the ventilation system or tires. They often nest in the air box that contains the cabin air filter, which creates a huge mess. Big Oak Citgo can fix issues such as these, and they also serve as a tire store in Yardley, PA.

One of the more common signs of rodent damage is the check engine light. The engine control module is effective at keeping track of wiring and is normally the first indication that there's an issue, like a rat chewing through it.

The best way to ward off these animals is by making the car as unattractive as possible for them. Park inside, or at least further away from trees and shrubbery. Don't leave food or garbage in the car. If that doesn't solve the problem, traps are incredibly useful as well.

The knowledgeable technicians at Big Oak Citgo have experience handling these types of issues.
