The last 25 years have been a constant effort and battle to have my beautiful Acura NSX stored in the shop or barn for 6 – 8 months a year. Have spent over $3000 on mice damage repairs. The smell they leave is nearly impossible to “clean” away. The wiring damages are expensive and have caused vehicle fires and traffic accidents.
In 25 focused years trying to limit mice damages and costs, I have mostly felt like the losing side in my tiny war with the most effective and tiny animals. Having tried 10 snap traps deployed in 500 square foot shop area, to poison bait, smelly oils and expensive sonic devices, I was only reducing some damages and only some of the time.
In 2016, I realized the only practical answer was a barrier that physically excludes mice, Or a perfectly sealed and stand alone garage area. In early 2017, I came up with my first prototype Flexible Rodent barrier.
