Given all of the other nesting...opportunities available in my garage, what is so appealing about the filter of a cold hunk of metal sitting motionless over the winter?

One year, there was an affinity for the bell housing of my F-150; two clutches in as many months!

Not quite as cute as Beverly Cleary portrayed them.

Thus far, the 1/4" has repelled them; also effective against flying squirrels invading the attic!
Probably because most of the round filter bikes have a grating on the air intake from the factory, except the last year which doesn't.
I had a 79 R65 that had the round filter and no grating. I bought it from a guy who had it stored under a tarp on his porch for more than 10 years. There was a whole city of mice living under the starter cover on that one.
