Hi all

If anyone is interested in Dr Chris Tidemann's methods for controlling (gassing) Mynas, go to:

He mentions trials of the method - I believe a number of local governments were interested - but, with a quick look, I could not find anything on outcomes. Some may ahe been in areas where Mynas are just moving in, to me the most relevant site for this sort of control measure.

Incidentally he helped with the trial of giant harp traps as a way of removing Grey-headed Flying Foxes from the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne.

The successful resolution, promoted by Victoria's leading bat expert Lindy Lumsden, was to persuade the animals to set up a new camp. (It's nearer the orchadists but that is another story!)

But that does not mean that Chris' technique might not have eventually worked.
