MIce coming through vent
There is a plastic vent cover which they have chewed through.
Is there a metal cover I can use instead - could not find one online
Any other suggestions?

I suggest getting a Continental Fan backdraft damper and insert it into the duct once you remove the cover. You may be able to slide it into the ducting (only worked like that for 1 in 4 in my home. Metal construction so harder for the critter to get through. Available at AMRE (or Andrew Sheret or some other plumbing/HVAC dealer).
Get a metal grill/louvered cover to cover the duct.
Thank you for your suggestion - I will try to get a metal grill cover.
Here are some other options at AMRE.

Take some sheet metal, drill some small holes and cover the hole in the exterior wall with it. Then put the vent cover on top of that.
