I have trouble like that and there are cats all over my yard! Go figure. I have ended buying humane traps..very cheap and they work.Make sure to go the distance when letting them out in the woods or they will find their way back.
I put peanuts in my traps and they love it!! Go to the hardware store to find the metal humane trap or even plastic types /Good luck

Mice come in not only for shelter but for food and water. Make sure that there is no food and water and they should leave. Another thing they don't need much to survive on.

We live with a forest right behind us. I got a bunch of those things you plug in a socket that keep mice out. We have them every where. We haven't had trouble with mice in the house. We've seen them outside and that's where they can stay. And there's a neighborhood cat that I've seen leave my property with mouse in mouth.

LOL13 is correct. Old fashioned snap-action mouse traps work very well. Bait them with a dab of peanut butter. Remove dead mouse, clean trap, rebait, and reset.

Find out where they are getting in and seal it up. Put out traps after you seal in to catch any mice still in your basement.

You can purchase electronic devices made by Victor,the mouse trap people,which plug into any standard outlet. they emit a high frequency squeal that drives mice nuts,don't worry you can't hear it.
