Good Questions: Humane Way to Get Rid of Mice?

Hi apartmenttherapy,

I have a mouse in my apartment who has started showing up almost every night. We spent a good chunk of Saturday night locked in a staring contest before he/she decided to hide out under my sofa. I keep my apartment clean, and so far, he/she hasn't gotten into my food supply.

Any recommendations for humane traps and 'gentle discouragement'? I live in an old, 20-unit apartment building. Thanks!
