How can I get rid of mice?

I have tried peppermint, sonic noise, live catch, and snap traps. I am considering buckets with ramps, but how do I get the dead mice out of the water? I do not wan to touch them. Plus I feel about mice the way many feel about snakes UGH

    You are most likely going to have to put out more snap traps and maybe poison. Find out where they are coming in, fix those areas. and get rid of what they are after. No food left out anywhere. They eat anything. Including dog and cat food. Put bait under the house if you have a crawl space.

    Use that green cake poison. I've killed 4 rats in a few days with it. Remember they carry diseases. They also don't like ammonia.

    I get the ick for the bucket thing but effective. I wasn’t even trying and had a big vase outside on a shelf when it rained it filled with water. Came out to clean out the shelf and had about 4 or five mice in it ,yuk. But I thought, well not in my house. Dumped the bucket over the deck and next time I looked they were gone, food for any critters out there. If not DECON!

    Mice also don't like moth balls. I put them in my sheds and they now stay out.

    Get some cat hair, put in several envelopes, and seal. Make a few small holes in each envelope. Place them on the bottom of the cabinets at the back.. The mice will smell the cat odor and pack their bags and leave. Be patient and wait.
