I try to store my car as late in the season as possible- after the critters have already found a place to stay for the winter. Dryer sheets and moth balls have never worked for me. The only thing that works is D-con. I usually put my car away around thanksgiving with with a few D-con blocks (wish i could get the pellets) under the hood around the engine and near the heater intake, in the cabin and in the trunk. In the spring I have found most of the blocks under the hood nibbled on but no mice.
This year I put the car away in early October and last week discovered most of the blocks under the hood have been eaten and had to be replaced.

Dont forget to tape up the engine air intake or you may find a dead mouse or a nest in the air filter box.
