Just a word of caution... When I use baits, I use one that does not poison secondarily. It does kill a hawk if the hawk (or your dog or cat) eats a mouse that has ingested it. Available from doityourselfpestcontrol.com

Sure-fire (non-toxic) solution that my parents still use: park your car over a couple of shop lights that you leave ON — all the time if you’re in a garage, at night if you park in an open carport. Seems to work for the nocturnal/crepuscular critters. My folks have them set on a timer. Don’t know if it would work on the critters who don’t mind daylight...
