Tent problem with mice

Hello all, hoping to get some advice regarding the uncomfortable topic of mice. I am currently house hacking a duplex in Newport Ky. About two months ago I was in my tents house, and I saw a mouse run across the floor. We have lived here for about a year, and this was the first time I had ever seen any mice. I immediately called Orkin to come out and look at the house. I also went out and bought traps, and we ended up catching one that night and Orkin came out the following Monday. Over the next two months she caught 5 mice in her house. At this point, I had never seen any mice in my house. (The other side of the duplex) Fast forward to the beginning of October my other tent, who lives with me on my side of the duplex, saw a mouse in her room, then a few days later in the kitchen. Again, I called Orkin to come out, and put down traps, however, we have not caught any mice so far. 

Now to the problem, I believe that I have gotten all the mice out of tent A's house, I have sealed up all the holes and put down some mice and rodent deterrent down, so they don't come back.  In my house, I have not caught a single mouse. The tent that lives in my house seems very afraid of seeing mice and them being in the house. Tenet B has said things like "seeing these mice have affected my mental health and I am not sure what to do" I am not sure if she is suggesting that she wants to move out, or something else. 

Am I doing everything that I should do, as a landlord? Is there more I should do? 

Thanks for your help.
