Indian Myna Traps Available to be Borrowed
1 October 2020
As Spring approaches, it is time again to focus efforts towards the control of Indian Mynas in the Hall village and district.
Indian Mynas are one of the biggest threats to our native wildlife. They
take over nesting hollows from birds, possums and gliders and drive them out of an area. Mynas are on the increase and are now being seen again in some areas in and around Hall.
Earlier this year the Village of Hall and District Progress Association purchased several traps from the Canberra Indian Myna Action Group (CIMAG) to be loaned to members of the community. The Men's Shed has offered to manage the storage and distribution of the traps.
There is no charge, but residents will be asked to join CIMAG and contribute to the statistics they keep on successful removal of Mynas and other pests.
An Indian Myna trap provided by the Village of Hall and District Progress Association can be borrowed by contacting the Hall Men's Shed.
