Because their servants and retainers are always fighting and innocents can be hurt. The Prince holds the heads of the families responsible for the actions of their servants and family members. Plus he has told them to stop like a billion times before.

They and their followers were fighting in the streets.

No, Mercutio is related to the Prince. He is neither a Montague or a Capulet.

No. He is the Prince of Verona and the voice of reason between the Capulet and Montague families, but he is not a member of either family.

Neither he is a relative of the prince.

Because they keep on disturbing the peace of Verona (whenever the two households fight, the peace is disturbed)

The prince states that hes got MONTAGUE IN HIS BLOOD, so he's a Montague. Actually the prince does not say that he has "Montague in his blood" at all. He does say: "Capulet, Montague, see what a scourge is laid upon your hate, that heaven finds means to kill your joys with love. And I, for winking at your discords too, have lost a brace of kinsmen." Capulet and Montague have lost their "joys", their children. But the Prince has lost kinsmen over and above those, and just two of them (Mercutio and Paris). The Prince, Mercutio and Paris belong to a family that is neither Montague nor Capulet. That is why Mercutio says, "A plague on both your houses." He is cursing Montagues and Capulets, but not his own house, which is different.
