This is a regular question. For information about the Common Myna and the control device see: This is the site about research and control of the species from Dr Chris Tidemann from the ANU.

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?
