Is it okay to staple into siding?

I'm trying to cover some holes in my bevel wood siding to keep out mice using stainless steel mesh stapled to the siding. Will I destroy my siding/let water in by having the staple pierce the siding? I suppose water already gets in the huge holes! Thanks

How big are these holes? Why haven't you just closed them up and painted the patches? I used to close wood peckar and fallen out knot holes with Bondo all the time with good results.
