Found Out Where The Smell Was Coming From


Recommended Posts

Started to smell really bad near the fuse block and I was pretty sure what lay beneath.




Pulled all of this out of the little compartment.  Body count: 2    Luckily they did not chew any of the wires I could see (will look closer this weekend).  Must have prefered the Dcon to 44 year old wire insulation.

I once had a tii that had had mice in the heater box at some point. I turned on the heat once during the winter and the smell was so bad I rolled the windows down and froze my ass trying to get it out. Two months later, again during winter, I was freezing my ass off again and thought, well, that smell couldn't have been as bad as freezing. I turned on the heat and fan and again, quickly rolled down the windows and froze even worse. When I pulled the heater box, I found clear evidence of mice but no bodies. It was astounding the degree to which it stank without actual carcasses.
