I have been catching mice all summer. Caught 3 last night. I throw them outside and the crows come and take them away.

In addition to the steel wool, I recently purchased a plug-in rodent eliminator that causes an alternating hum in the wiring of the house, which runs mice out. The noise, which does not bother dogs, cats, etc., is annoying enough to rodents that they leave the premises. It works pretty slick!! I got mine at Tru Value - they have a special on them this month.
Also, be sure to put boxes of D-Con around the inside perimeter of your crawl space. This kills them before they get a chance to come in. I have done this for two years now, and have not had near the mice I had before.

Fine steel wool pulled apart and stuffed in holes to keep mice and rats out is one of the best and cheapest ways.
They will chew through almost anything, but not steel wool.
It gets caught in their little tiny sharp teeth and they do not like it.
