About Do commercial pest controllers deal with them? I am sure some will, but they will only be interested in it when a paying customer pays them to, for example to remove a nest from the roof or gutter. Clearly it is not in their ability to do anything on the bigger issue of the abundance of the birds in the environment. No one will pay them for that. There is one guy who advertises pest control, with a picture of a house sparrow and possum on his ads, though he alternates it with another artwork that shows a Tree Sparrow (which isn’t here).

Suddenly, they are prominent in Yarralumla after years of virtual absence.

Is any one currently carrying out extermination programs? I would be happy to help.
