    Thanks Wayne,

    This is definatetly more along the lines of what I am looking for. We
    live in an 1858 farm house and along with ALOT of steel wool, we also
    had the foundation of the house retucked as well. The birds have
    their own lovely room, our cats are very rarely allowed in there so
    this is the only room with mice issues. I guess the little rodents
    are actually pretty smart after all! The issue has been about 98%
    resolved and indeed, the steel wool blocks are what worked.

    Thanks for your advice and consideration,
