Stuf-Fit Copper mesh is a kind of knitted wire mesh. It is designed to stuff all kinds of openings to stop pests, bees, insects, rodents and other similar unwanted animals. Once tightly packed in a hole, crack or gap, the copper mesh refused to be pulled out. This copper wool has special interlocked structure. You can tack it, staple it or glue it to any openings. Compared with steel wool, copper wool has two advantages. First, its knitted construction often catches rodents' teeth and makes it hard for them to chew through or remove. Second, copper mesh never rusts. Roll is 100 foot long and about five inches wide.

Note: Since most buyers check the product and buy and not the seller policies, I feel it is good to let buyers know regarding Fly Bye vendor return policy. If you return the the item within 30 days, then they charge 20% restocking fee plus the shipping charge they paid to ship it to you. And of course, you are paying shipping for the return back to them.
That is their policy, nothing wrong with it - it is good to know that beforehand, so you are aware.
After spending a ton of time researching and planning, I decided to go with a combo attack to stop the small field mice from getting in every winter. We got tired of hearing them run around our basement drop ceiling, occasionally getting stuck in the walls and scratching away for hours. Worse yet, we even had several die in the wall, producing months of off-and-on smell. Not a great situation.
The best solution we found was to take this excellent copper mesh, stuff it into the rodent access points, then fill in the rest with bitter, anti-rodent expanding foam. The combo worked perfectly, as the rodents that tried to gnaw through the foam were met with the copper mesh, and they quickly gave up. This winter we had ZERO mice, no skittering sounds, no problems. Huge thumbs up here!
Unless you secure this material, whatever you're trying to block with may simply push it out of the way. Expanding foam is a quick and dirty method to secure it, just make sure you don't use too much! (As it expands it may push the copper mesh out of the place you want it to be).
Another option is to use this in conjuction with a mortar/concrete material. Much more durable, and less likely to move your mesh around - but also less suitable for many indoor applications.
I used galvanized metal lath from the local home improvement store for the larger holes around the house foundations. The lath is more durable and galvanized so it will not rust and is very malleable so like the copper mesh, it can be easily formed to fit the larger opening that are too big to fill with this mesh.
I was quoted $2,600 from a local company to trap and exclude rats. In comparison, this mesh is a bargain.
Remember to NOT use rodent poisons, secondary poisonings is the leading cause of raptor deaths, and raptors are what keep the rodent population down.
