Default Mice in Aviary

hi All
I have an outdoor aviary, it has pavers rather than a solid concrete base, and recently it would seem some mice have decided to move in. Ack.
They are getting in by digging up through the gaps in the paving stones. I am currently in the process of putting gap filler in between the paving stones, which seems a no brainer. But I don't want to do too much at once as I'm worried about the fumes being too overwhelming for the budgies even though it's outdoors (the stuff smells quite strong)

I managed to catch 4 of them kind of by accident, I had a bin in the aviary that I would use to put leaf rubbish in, some of them fell in and I'm not sure if they couldn't get out but I managed to quickly empty them out into a garbage bag (at which point I freaked out LOL).

Obviously I can't go around putting normal mouse traps in the aviary, but I'm wondering if anyone who has or has had aviaries, knows of any good ideas of ways to trap these buggers in a way that won't be able to harm the budgies?

Thanks for any ideas!

I haven't had an aviary however you could try putting the traps just outside the aviary. Bait them with peanut butter. Mice love it, and if it's just outside the aviary the budgies won't be able to get it.
