I've never tried this but I have seen several versions of this trap. It looks like it would work pretty well... ;)

   Interesting Topic. We moved to an old farm house that was where I grew up at. My wife was from the City and had never had a mouse problem.
      Our first year there in the fall the critters came in , but they were not Mice? We set some traps in the old Farmhouse return air ducts. She was excited to see what would happen. The first night the traps go off and we run to see what we caught? We shine the light in the register , only to see a Rat eating cheese on the trap. He picks the trap up and heads back into the ductwork.
    My wife says , What the hell was that? My Response was "Field Mice left unattended grow rather Large" . She didn't buy that.

How about a air rifle with night scope. No reason why this cant be fun. I have picked off a few mice with a 1966 Crosman M1. Effective  but only close range accuracy.
