    How to kill an indian myna

    he he he - make the mine collapse....... tassie style


    no seriously, im fed up with indian myna birds crapping on the back patio and eating the dog food - have taken the dog food away - in the hope she will eat the myna birds to no effect.

    is there a simple way to bait them without poison, like the ole paracetamol in milk for the moggies.....

    someone mentined to me onece there is something you can feed them that makes them "blow up" from the inside..... but i cant remember what it was.

    The trouble there mate, is you never get the bloody introduced pest.
    I have a dislike for the Indian Myna myself. And pidgeons, rats with feathers.

    we have mynas (both indian & native), but over the past year they've been trained up to fly away at top speed whenever I get the water pistol out & try to get them

    Don't know what'll do them in for good, I just enjoy target practice

    Maybe a cat would help if you could put up with the nasty side effects of cats.

    It would at least give the dog something to play with and a dietary supplement as well.

    Wasn't there someone making traps for them?
    I remember seeing something on TV. They wanted to be selective to the other birds weren't wacked.

    Blow them up
    Wasnt it bicarb soda on chips for seagulls?
    Dont think the RSPCA would take to kindly to it.
    Can you trap them by making a cage with a simple maze so its hard to find the exit then dispose of them humanely? Sounds like it would be easy to trick them into going in to get the dogfood.
    To stop them roosting above the car my bro fixed the problem for my sister by running several runs of fishing line along the rafters,worked well.Some outside eateries do the same to stop seagulls.
    Goodluck.

    Hey, Andy. If memory serves me right. Way back in the old Navy days, a bit of bacon or pork fat, tied to a fishing line can turn a seagull into an impressive KITE. And if you are really lucky, it will go through them like a dose of salts, then another one comes along, and you have a double decker kite.

    Of course this doesn't help with the Myna bird problem, but it seemed fun at the time.

    We have 2 or 3 rubber snakes on our outdoor table and this seems to keep the birds away (haven't seen them attack them yet!!!)

    It's called the MYNAMAGNET
    Developed by a bloke called Chris Tidman from ANU. He's a zoology lecturer. Interesting bloke.

    I know my Council has invested in a few to test around here. You can loan them for a week or so to help reduce the population
