I've never had a mouse problem so i'm really not sure... The humane trap was worth a try but apart from that i'm really not sure what the alternatives are... I hope someone else can help you out because a mouse problem is certainly not a good problem to have.

I don't know either. We had a rat problem once, so my dad left a plate of cement powder mixed with flour in the roof. Apparently the rats eat it and it clogs up their insides, which sends them insane and causes them to kill each other. I didn't believe it would work, but it did... sad

Could you not buy lots of humane mouse traps? Isn't there one that traps the mice but doesn't kill them, so you can let them go?

There is, but my parents don't believe it works, so they said we'd only buy one- but they're not going in it... maybe i'm using the wrong bait or maybe they're just too smart!

You don't have to buy them, you can make your own.
Sounds a bit far fetched but it may just work.

I had the same prob. There was heaps of mice in my aviary, and shed, so I set up two humane mouse traps.  These are the exact ones I use: http://www.humanemousetrap.com.au/

They work AWESOME!!! But you have to stick peanut butter at the end, and you have to check it every few hours. I caught 6 mice in 3 days, and let them go far away! They really work!!! I now have no mice!!!  ecstatic

I was going to suggest peanut butter, but it seems Pegs beat me to it! Peanut butter is the best bait. Rats and mice love it!

One problem I found with that though, mice can jump REALLY high. I caught a mouse and out him in a bucket without the lid and some food, and he jumped out and ran off!
