Glue traps are inhumane

I HAVE noticed that a few shops still sell glue traps for catching vermin.

I would like to warn people against purchasing them as they are cruel and inhumane, not only for the intended victims, but they can also trap other species such as birds and pets who unwittingly stand on them. They die slow lingering deaths unable to move and unable to get to any food or water.

If you wish to get rid of pests please use humane ways, or failing that seek advice from an expert as a last resort.

Hopefully shop keepers will read this and dispose of them sensibly and notify their suppliers of the dangers.
