Squirrels Snack on Bioplastics Car Parts

Driver believes squirrels are eating the bioplastics car parts of his new Honda.

Canadian based Lenard Broadhead believes squirrels are eating the biodegradable bioplastics car parts of his new Honda.

Squirrels are eating the air-filters, motors and fuel injector wiring and the total repair costs are reaching $1,000.

There have been several class actions lawsuits in the US against Honda, Kia and Toyota with the complaint that the ecofriendly wiring has a faint scent of vanilla, attracting rodents.

Car dealership said animals causing damage to vehicles wasn’t anything new and it had nothing to do with the biodegradable parts.

CLOSING REMARKS

  • How funny this may be, this proves the fact that some bioplastics are truly biodegradable … and comestible by squirrels.
