Cowl entry?

Have no idea how to get rid of them via the no kill option.

There's room to get in at lower front fenders. You can fill with course steelwool to prevent them getting in. Back fill with insulation on top.

Any chance there is a hole in your heater box? I had mice get into the cowl through the little opening by the weep hole and entered the heater box. They chewed a big hole in it and entered through there. The best obvious solution is a garage or a cat...lol.

I know what you mean about the chipmunks. My kids would be upset if I pulled an Eastwood on them. They are cute but can do a lot of damage. Good luck!

Moth balls will keep them (and you) out. A better (and better smelling) alternative is dryer sheets. Throw a couple of fresh sheets in every month or so.

Human hair - it's true. I had racoons in my chimney and heard about a town that was having problems with deer on their parks baseball field. They "sowed" the park with human hair from the local barber and the deer left the outfield. I gave it a try down my old chimney and the racoons moved.

Buy a live trap, then drop them off a few miles away next to someone else's Mustang.
