    Sudden noises such as the snapping of the traps and the
    agonized scream of something dying will definitely upset
    your birds. However, I would be less worried about the
    trauma from a trap and more worried about the diseases you
    are exposing yourself and your family to by not having a
    professional permanently take care of the
    mouse 'infestation'. Read up on the diseases mice carry and
    can cause and I think you will find yourself taking action
    to protect all those who are currently at risk. Good luck
    with your problem. -Alison-
