yep, steel wool works great.......our little varmints were getting in through the weep holes and it's a protective mechanism that they can flatten their bodies to squeeze thru the tiniest openings and they will eat just about anything----we had some that actually ate the chalky insulation around the pipes in the basement and boxes of Christmas ornaments stored at my grandmother's.......steel wool will allow the holes to breathe but the mice can't chew thru them........my brother in law set a trap in the attic and paid dearly for it as the poor thing died inside the walls and they could not live in their house for a while.......poor wife was 2 months pregant and urping all day as it was but they had to move out until the odor went away......never did locate it.....

Maybe that's why they have never come in my bathroom. Man, that makes me want to kill them even more!

Talk about Stephen Spielburg-style childhood memories.......I will NEVER forget putting a pair of shoes on at my Grandma's farmhouse, experiencing a blockage due to a live mouse who was holed up inside.....I don't know who was more scared...the mouse leaped out in sheer terror......all I know is that my 10 year old blood curdling screams brought my 65 year old Grandma running.....then once she realized that I was going to survive the heart attack she couldn't stop laughing.......I do laugh about it now.......but it wasn't funny back then........

Mice don't like mothballs either they are good for places like the attic.
