I find they don’t stink at all.
And my nose isnt fucked either, noticed the
distinctive smell when one of my neighbours
stopped his diesel ute with his engine running
while talking to someone there outside his ute
in the park/walk way next to my house.
Only if you unplug them and throw them with a good aim.
One type of trap I have had reasonable success with is electronic
Neck breakers can be effective but often the buggers can take the bait
without tripping them.
A useful thing to find out where the run is if it is not obvious such as in
a loft with a lot of insulation
Is a wildlife trap camera that can work in the dark, one may help see where
they are getting access so it can be blocked and if it a mouse ( get a cat)
or a Rat ( get a Terrier).

They can certainly hear them. We live capture and deport up onto the
moor miles (litrally) from any habitation. When one deportee was in
the cage I switched an acoustic "repeller" on and off a few times.
Mousey jumped every time it was switched on but otherwise didn't seem
to be bothered.
As a repeller doubtful, the mice still came in in the winter...
Peanut butter also goes rancid, chocolate spread doesn't.
For repelling Elephants yes . We plugged one in about a six months ago
(didn't buy it MiL went into a home so we 'inherited' it) since that
time we have had zero elephants in the living room, proof positive that
it works as an Elephant repeller, but as for Mice it probably doesn't
work (but we haven't seen any mice either).
Being rural we used to get field mice a lot but this time of year they
seem to prefer all the fresh fruit and Berries and all the fresh air,(
may well be a different story come winter).
