Don't bother with humane mouse traps they probably cause more stress than the ones that kill them straight out. I used a humane one and the poor things were dead inside and it was full of mouse urine and droppings.
I used a humane one for a rat that was in the garden and caught it--drove about 3mile away and released it.
Use a raisin or sultana on a mouse trap or malt loaf but be prepared if they have nested as you may find lots of them. If its inside Try and find where they are gaining entry and block off-- could be where a waste pipe passes through wall and not filled in properly.

I believe you can get sticky pads,very effective but they are not humane... it depends how bad your infestation is, I dont think there is any humane way to kill just maybe quicker.

I hated doing it , but a while back we had mice in the roof . I used a simple steel (not wood) snap down mouse trap baited with chocolate and laid it along the edge of a beam. Checked it twice a day . Nothing for the first day, then about four , one at each check after each time Id reset it. The bar did land at various points across the head shoulders and body, but I got the impression with the powerful snap that they would have died pretty quickly . Quicker than poison anyway and I knew where they were to remove them. Didnt find a live one at the checks ,anyway,
