Try a nut butter in "traditional" mice traps. These
have a little tab pushed up on the trigger that you can fill with any nut butter (we use peanut butter) so the mice have to work a bit harder to get to the bait.
Also put say 10 traps near the place where you think that the mice get in (we have one main entrance into our house and one main spot in the kitchen). If the mice manages to get the bait from one trap then they can still get caught by backing into another trap.
We only usually have a problem with mice in the autumn, when the colder weather hits they seem to go into a torpor.
Mice liking cheese is a bit of a myth.
So long and thanks for all the fish...
