Please Urge NYC Company to Halt the Use of Glue Traps
Glue traps are some of the most vile products on the market, causing immense and prolonged suffering. Victims often rip themselves to pieces in their frantic struggles to escape the sticky mess. Exhausted and terrified, they succumb to shock, dehydration, asphyxiation, or blood loss—and death can take days. Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as Health Canada warn against using glue traps because of disease risks posed by the many pathogens in the waste of stressed rodents.
Please urge Page Apartments to join the countless entities that have sworn off glue traps. And please, forward this alert widely!

To Whom It Concerns,
I have just learned that your management company is using glue traps, and I am respectfully requesting you stop utilizing them. In and of itself, killing the mice is inherently immoral, but using glue traps to do so compounds the vicious nature of such an extremely painful and fearfully agonizing experience for animals. Victims often rip themselves to pieces in their frantic struggles to escape the sticky mess. Exhausted and terrified, they succumb to dismemberment, shock, dehydration, asphyxiation, or blood loss—and death can take days.
This also proves medically dangerous to humans considering that, according to the CDC, glue traps create optimal conditions to spread disease. I would hope any company that shares a core principle of quality of life would be equally concerned with utilizing any disease-spreading forms of mice control.
Instead, please consider promoting and using humane traps to capture and release mice in an ethical and painless manner.
Thank you for your time and attention to this important appeal.
