The best to keep mice out.

The best way to solve a mouse problem is never to have gotten one in the first place. So what is the best kind of product out there to keep mice out of your home or garage? Door sweeps and weather stripping is your first like of defense against mice. You'd be surprised how a small gap under your garage door can invite a mouse or rat in for a long winters nap. The nest is sealing gaps. Using products like stuf-fit, a copper wool product, or regular old steel wool will do the trick (steel wool will rust though ). Any kind of expanding foam product to keep mice out will also do wonders or even some good old fashioned caulk. Won't the mice just eat through the foam like a piece of bread? No. Mice are lazy and will look for the next easiest route of entry.

You bring up a good point here... the best way to get rid of mice is to keep them out of your home in the first place. A good place to check for entries to your home is around pipes or other perforations to your home's exterior.
