Please help ban glue/sticky traps for mice and other animals/insects!

Glue traps immobilize mice and rats, leaving them to slow dehydrate, suffer and die.
The traps, which use a strong adhesive to render animals who walk upon them unable to escape, are cheap and seemingly effective. They are also incredibly cruel: they trap mice and rats, but they don't actually kill them. On its website, the Vancouver Humane Society (VHS) explains how immobilized mice and rats "often die a long, slow, agonizing death of starvation, dehydration and exhaustion." Essentially, they are stuck, so they can't get food or water, and thus, die slowly.
And regardless of arbitrary social classifications of "pet" and "pest," no animal deserves to suffer in such a way.
