Great stuff and other insulation

My house is basically a house that was framed after a barn then sided with barn wood. The insulation is pretty poor. I started drilling small holes all around the walls and filling all the edges with great stuff. I've also been doing this to stop rodents from getting the run if the whole house. I even went in the crawl space and filled the space between the house and the foundation with great stuff. Some corners I've cut open and shoved wire screening is so they can't chew thorough. I'm not going too heavy because I don't want to damage the walls. Once this is done, what's a good insulation to use to fill the rest of the walls with? I like foam because it's easy but great stuff would be expensive and probably not the best for larger open spaces. Any suggestions/ recommendations?

Look into spray foam. But I think you already know that mice can chew and tunnel in foam. Other that your question is pretty vague.

Great stuff is a one part foam gap sealer, it's not really intended to be used for bulk insulation but that's not to say somebody hasn't tried!
