That "10%" threshold is a good rule of thumb! I'll have to give that some thought...

Back here at your old haunt, in the hills. We use Rat-a-tat which you can get online. Not cheap but works. We’ve had on two cars for the last five years and no more chewing.

Correction it is called rid-a-rat. It uses a pulsed light

Ah! I've ordered some bait stations (not Rat-A-Tat brand, another one), and we're clearing out the rodent habitat near the parking area, but maybe I should also get a Rid-A-Rat per vehicle. Having a bright blinky light under the hood seems safer for predators and scavengers than poisoned rodents would be.
