Can anyone help Richard with this request? Perhaps you could also let us all know via birding-aus if there are myna traps that can be used legally. It would be good to do something about these pests. However, something in the dark recesses of my brain tells me that the only way Mynas have been elminated on a large scale was by netting and gassing - was this the Bairnsdale (Vic) method?

Dear Russell

I am looking for the source of either plans to construct or a
pre-built myna trap.

Most links on Google seem to point to the SA bird group, (who
inexplicably state, ~As we no longer have any Indian Myna's in South Australia we are unable to give you any information about
traps.~) What will they do when the myna~s reappear?

There is also a link to ANU, but email to the published address
 remains unanswered.

Can you assist?

Best regards

Richard Hall
