Screw mouse traps; put out about 50 D-Con boxes under the car, on the floorboards (put a piece of plastic between them and the mats), in the trunk, and under the hood. The little buggers will eat that and go off somewhere and bleed to death.
If you don't have D-Con, throw a bunch of Coumadin tablets around; it's the same thing.
If you use mouse traps, then you're going to have decaying mouse corpses littering your storage place and imprinting your leather with the permanent smell of death, maggots eating the little bitty rat corpses, and you'll be swarmed with hungry flies when you open the door after you get home. Not a pretty picture.
Actually, that was a little more graphic than I meant it to be. D-Con is a better bet.
