If you want a safer alternative to the wood-and-wire snap traps you might consider two plastic traps I've used. One is "The Better Mousetrap" made of grey plastic, and the other is the "Tomcat" mousetrap, made of black plastic.

You can set them with one finger, after they're in place, and I've had good success with them. You can find descriptions on the internet, and you can buy them online, too. But around here (New Jersey) most large grocery stores, department stores, and home centers carry them.

The problem with the glue traps is you wind up with a live mouse in the glue. I use glue traps to catch crickets in my basement and I have occasionally caught a mouse in one. They can be drowned in a bucket of water, but it's a very unpleasant job.
