Q: Is steel wool safe to keep rodents away?
There seems to be some sort of rodent trying to get in and someone told my mother-in-law to use steel wool.

Steel wool is safe. Its used to plug up any holes or openings around pipes because rodents won't chew through it to get in. That's why its more effective that expanding foam which they would just chew through. Although they won't chew through it they can pull, push, or drag it out of the way unless its put in really tight. The best way to do this is to stick steel wool in the hole & then seal it with expanding foam or caulk. Good luck.

Not sure what you mean by safe, it is what we try to plug every hole in our campers with at the lake. Those darned mice can get in every hole, no matter how small. It is almost like they are snake-like. If you mean, will your cats eat it-don't think so-hope this helps
