To help stop the invasive Indian Myna bird we sell traps for home use to reduce the numbers and impact Mynas have on the environment.
Our PeeGee traps are supplied by the Yarra Indian Myna Action Group (YIMAG), a local community based group. YIMAG have comprehensive information on their website about the birds, the traps, stopping the invasion and approved trapping protocol and euthanasia / disposal methods. Please take the time to research the whole process as you need to understand and agree to Animal Welfare Protocols before purchasing.
If you would like to buy a trap please complete the form below and we will call you to arrange a contactless purchase and pick up through the Coronavirus lockdown. Completing and lodging this form signifies you understand and agree to meeting YIMAG Animal Welfare Protocols.
The principal objective of YIMAG is to reduce the impact of Indian mynas on our native birds and animals.
The YIMAG seeks to achieve this objective by:
• Increasing public awareness that Indian mynas are a serious environmental and health threat, not just a public nuisance.
• Implementing a humane reduction program.
• Coordinating the manufacture and supply of traps.
Anyone person participating in the trapping program are required to adopt the following animal welfare protocol.
