Roomba battery

Always store Roomba charging on the Home Base or with the Charger plugged into the robot. For long-term storage, iRobot recommends that the battery be fully charged and then removed from the robot and stored in a cool, dry place. http://homesupport.irobot.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/648

Occasionally reset your Roomba and fully discharge the battery. Once every few months, you should reset your Roomba and fully discharge the battery: Remove the battery and hold down the POWER button for at least 5 seconds to reset Roomba. (For single-button robots, hold down the CLEAN button.) Reinstall the battery and charge it until the POWER light turns green. http://homesupport.irobot.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/647

rodents chewing under car hood

In the area of Southern Germany where I live the culprits are usual members of the marten family. Here some people solve the problem by placing a wooden frame covered in stretched chicken wire under the motor compartment of the car when its parked. Apparently the beast don't like to walk on the chicken wire and so don't climb into the engine compartment. https://scienceblogs.com/principles/2010/02/28/how-do-i-kill-the-squirrels-wh#comment-1634241

To help keep squirrels away from your ride, the Canadian Wildlife Federation suggests using taste deterrents, like bitter apple spray. Most pet stores and veterinary clinics carry bitter apple spray, as well as other taste deterrents for wildlife. Use caution and talk to a mechanic before spraying anything directly on your vehicle, though, to help avoid any damage. https://www.amazon.com/Emmys-Best-Anti-Spray-Puppies/dp/B01F7K66QE/ref=sr_1_3_sspa
