Check Mice Nests – Risk Damaged Equipment

Birds are not the only ones that like to build nests as well as spring time is not the only season animals will build nests. Mice love to winter in enclosed places like engine compartments, window A/C units and lawn tractor nooks and crannies. Shawn Chesney Home Inspections recommends if a vehicle or piece of equipment has been sitting unused for a while, or some seasonal equipment will be put in service or used soon, to go over thoroughly and to check for mice nests before you start it up. Items like wiring, fuel lines as an example of things to inspect. The last thing you want to do is take out your boat and discover that you have little furry stowaways that have chewed through half the wires causing significant damage or possibly creating a dangerous situation. Mice like to chew on wires which can cause short circuits or worse and have even been known to chew through fuel lines which can lead to fire or explosions in some cases. Mice nests can also cause electronics to overheat and can get sucked into and clog carburetors.
