CONTROL ADVICE

  • Never approach traps during daylight hours as trapped myna birds may give an alarm call that other birds will hear. Thereafter they may perceive the trap as a threat - Bill Handke
  • Make sure there is plenty of food, water and shelter in your myna bird trap - Happy lure birds (callers) will attract others - Nick K
  • Email your top control tips to mynascan@feralscan.org.au and we’ll display them here
