Mice like the foam. It makes a great insulated "home".  They will nest in 
fiberglass as well.  Try stainless steel "Chore Girl" scrubbers to add 
structure to the foam.  I've also heard of layering the foam with hot sauce 
and/or cayenne pepper.

I have the same problem only with mice.  They chew away insulation on the 
They can squeeze thru a very small opening.  I'm thinking of trying either the 
duct seal 
or the expandable foam for these critters.   Anyone had success with either of 
these for mice ?  


##  Mice and small critters hate stainless steel wool.  They try and eat it,  
Once ingested, it kills em dead asap. 
I'd stuff a load of steel wool in there 1st.... THEN cover it up with duct 
seal.  Those steel wool scouring pads, soaked 
in that dry powder cleaner will also work..but they are small..and usually 
several per box.   The steel wool usually comes in 
huge containers... like the  "bull dog"  brand of steel wool.  The duct seal, 
also known as 'elephant s#@t"  in the telco world
is available at any home depot [ electrical dept]  and also any electrical 
wholesaler.  Comes in 1 lb and also 10 lb bags. As
noted, it's like kid's  plastercene.   They don't like the smell of duct seal 
anyway. the duct seal keep's out water + cold air.
