ERIE, Pa., March 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Over recent months, you may have found yourself driving less than usual. While your car sits idle, the inside of your hood makes for a cozy escape from the cold for many unwanted creatures – like mice. They may be small, but they can create big problems for you and your vehicle. A single mouse can cause thousands of dollars in damage to your car in a matter of days. And the diseases they carry can be harmful to your health, too.

Even if you leave your doors closed and your windows rolled up, there are plenty of ways for a mouse to get into your car. Once you've made the unfortunate discovery, here are four ways to get them out.
At Erie Insurance, animal-related damage to your car is covered by the optional comprehensive coverage in your auto insurance policy. That includes damage to your car from mice or rats. You'll just be responsible for paying your deductible. Check out this video for more information on rats in your hood and how to prevent it.
