    Most drains have cross bars, a pop-up waste, or a screen over the drain. Yours may be missing or never had any of these. If it did not, replacing either the entire drain, which is not as difficult as you might think, may be the best option. If the current drain is a standard size there are replacements for the chrome ring that you see in the tub which will allow you to install a pop-up drain or screen that will keep the little beggars at bay for less than $20.

    Okay, plus side is that the mice will likely remove or prevent hair clogs.

    If mice are coming up the actual bath tub drain... then you have more problems than the mice..... if they are entering up the inside of the bathtub drain pipe... then the drain pipe is disconnected or broken somewhere under your house.. and the bath water is draining under your house.. and could compromise your foundation. Your drain line to the septic tank or sewer line could also be broken or had come apart. Contact HomeAdvisor.com or AngiesList.com and get a Plumber or Plumbing contractor out there fight a way.. Have them run a camera down the drain and find out how the mice are getting into the tub drain line..
