I thought that was standard equipment on all snowblowers.

Amazes me how much the little turd machines can move and hide away in a few months.

There's just one thing I'll guarantee , the best things in life, they sure AIN'T FREE !!

I use Irish spring soap bars. I crack the box open and lay close to what ever I want to protect from rodents. Been doing this for 30 years and haven't had a critter screw with my stuff since. I keep an open box in every vehicle I own. You can stuff under a seat or anywhere air flows by. I know it works.



I have them sitting everywhere on my garage floor. My garage is the nicest smelling garage miles around.

@leonz mentioned in another thread that he too uses Irish Spring soap to keep pests at bay. That's pretty cool. What is there in or about Irish Spring in particular that they don't like?

I'm going to have to try the Irish spring. I get all kinds of critters (though usually mice) making nests in my gas grill and my patio heater.
