May or may not have anything to do with getting the tractor serviced. A couple of years ago I had my Polaris UTV, which I had not started up for 2 weeks, parked along side of my workshop. 5:15 in the morning someone was pounding on our door to inform my wife that we had a fire along side of my garage. The flames were higher (plastic body) than our barn/riding arena. A couple of weeks later I tried to start our pontoon boat and got nothing out of the starter. Tracing the wires, I found a couple of places where mice had chewed completely through some wires. All that was left was the frame and a pile of melted plastic. I'm assuming the mice also got to the UTV.
