I find that stale peanut butter works well.
I hear that a bucket half full of water with a peanut butter covered bottle that turns freely on a wire across the top of the bucket works very well, but the boss won't go for it. We have an old cat that gifted us one last night (on the bed of course, after throwing up the guts -- also on the bed).
I am currently using a grey plastic "Intruder - the better mouse trap" which works quite well, costs about $2.50, but it can be washed and reused, you just squeeze the thing to release the dead mouse. It's got a real sensitive trigger mechanism, I have the sore spots on my fingers to prove it.
