I don`t think it`s from rodents, though I could be wrong. HOPE it isn`t because the previous battle with a CaddyShack squirrel was starting to look like a "death and taxes" proposition before it finally ended. At least I think it`s ended. The material in my wife`s car was the same bits of dry weeds that the bird nests were made of. Our squirrels seem to prefer burrowing, no rats around AFAIK, and I don`t think a mouse or vole could get up there. Most importantly, no rodent turds.

As far as the carport goes, the nests are all down now and for sure there were no eggs. Ran out of rabbit wire before I got all the nest spots covered and need to get more to finish the job immediately because at least one bird was already trying to reconstruct even as I was still working on the other side of the carport. Will try moth balls for the car, but they didn`t have them in the hardware store. What type of store carries them? Honestly, I`ve heard of them many times, but don`t think I`ve ever actualy seen any.
