Pests

Our natural environment can be under threat at times from Indian Myna Birds and Wild Dogs.

Indian Myna Birds

Indian Mynas are a pest. They compete with native birds and sugar gliders for food and nesting hollows.

They are attracted to areas where food is easily accessible. For example:

  • left over pet food
  • seed in bird feeders
  • bread, rubbish and scraps

The easiest way to get rid of Indian Mynas is to stop feeding them.

To purchase an Indian Myna trap please contact the Men's Shed at the Taree Showground by phoning 0401 408 429.                                 

Wild dogs

If you live in a rural area and wild dogs are attacking livestock, you need to contact the NSW Local Land Services Hunter office.

If the wild dogs are in a residential area contact us.
