Best thing I have found is called a sticky trap. Works for any bugs and mice. Flat sheet of thick plastic coated with some of the stickiest goo you ever saw. Anything that touches it is trapped. Place one or 2 on the floor along a wall where critters might run. No chemicals, no smell, and they keep on working. When the trap gets loaded with victims, just burn trap and all..

Pineywoods we use them for snakes in our basement, it's amazing how sticky them things are.  I caught about a 14" garter snake on one, it moved it a little but not much, the more they wiggle the more stuck they get.  They also catch every other little creeper around and as you said easy clean up.  I think the snakes get in under the siding and my wife is absolutely horrified by them, good thing we don't have the mean ones around here  ;)
