Stop Selling Cruel Glue Traps

Target: Duncan Macnaughton, CEO of Mills Fleet Farm

Goal: Stop selling glue traps that keep animals suffering for days before death.

Mills Fleet Farm is a popular retailer in particular parts of the U.S. that unfortunately still sells glue traps despite knowing these traps are especially cruel. It is time to stop selling these terrible traps.

Glue traps are a type of rodent trap that lure animals onto the pad, typically using food, and once on the pad, the animal is stuck to the sticky top layer. The animal immediately panics and death can take days. The animal will do almost anything to get away from the trap, including chewing off their own limbs. In addition, these traps can capture non-targeted species including family pets and endangered species. Even the Center for Disease Control advises people not to use these traps as they harbor disease from the animals’ urine and feces.

Sign this petition and demand Mills Fleet Farm stop selling these barbaric traps.


Dear Mr. Macnaughton,

Despite knowing glue traps are one of the cruelest and most unsafe traps on the market, your company continues to sell these barbaric devices. It is time to stop selling these awful traps.

Animals are lured onto the glue trap, typically by using food, and once on the trap, get stuck to the surface. Panic begins to set in and the animal becomes desperate to get away. It is not uncommon for animals to chew off their own limbs in order to escape or to rip off their own skin, fur, or feathers. Death can take days and throughout that entire time, the animal is panicking and trying anything to escape. Non-targeted animals can also get stuck in these traps, including endangered species and family pets. Even the Center for Disease Control advises not to use these traps as they harbor bacteria and pathogens from the animals’ urine and feces.

Please consider ending your sale of glue traps. These traps are cruel, unsafe for humans, and unnecessary.

  1. Mills Fleet Farm needs to stop selling these cruel and torturous traps. The horrible suffering of animals caught in these traps is unimaginable.
    Who could be so cruel as to sell them or use them? What’s wrong with people?? All such traps should be banned completely everywhere.
    People need to come out of the stone age and stop being cold-hearted savages and barbarians.

  2. This is a savage and horrible way to control the creatures that upset you.The centre for disease control merely advise against using the cruel things, why not ban them altogether thereby cutting out both the cruelty and the health hazards? Or hadn’t you thought of that?

  3. Nooshin Perla says:

    You would think that in todays times of technology, that there would be a better “mouse trap”! Shame on you.

  4. ban the cruel killing glue traps fro good now.

  5. Don’t let misconception cause false judgement. Mice are relatively clean, caring and intelligent creatures. Just like any of us. This is cruel, stop using glue traps.

    P.S. Even the CDC does not recommend the use of glue traps:
