I would use snap traps baited with peanut butter (and maybe sprinkle a few flakes of oatmeal on the peanut butter). Place the traps near the back of counters or cabinets. Mice are less inclined to go out into the open. If you put the traps along their normal paths, you'll be more successful at catching them.
