Magnet Trap LogoIntroducing The Magnet Trap range

Collapsible, professional and heavy-duty vertebrate cage traps

The new Magnet Trap range includes the world-famous Myna Magnet that has been in use for the control of the Indian myna (Acridotheris tristis) in every corner of the Globe. The range has now expanded to include a variety of collapsible, professional grade vertebrate pest animal traps for control of feral cats, possums, mynas, starlings, pigeons, and foxes to name a few.

Following the innovations of the original Myna Magnet, the need arose for a smaller, more efficient and easy to handle myna trap. This trap is known as the Mini Myna Magnet. Further development was needed in response to government and non-government agencies requirements and landholders alike for an additional component in the baiting, shooting components of Integrated Pest Management.

The Magnet Trap Product List (index)

The Mini Myna Magnet

Code: 07-trap10

Mini Myna MagnetThe most widely used trap design in Australia today. The Mini Myna Magnet is collapsible, durable and a proven solution to this difficult to control species – the Indian myna and European starling. The trap includes all the welfare options you would expect from the original Myna Magnet such as feed and water dispensers and a solid roof. There are no sharp edges and includes a highly engineered 20-piece one-way valve. The collapsible design allows easy storage and transport after trapping is complete. Unlike home-made mesh traps; scratches, bird (and human) injury, rusty components and bird escapees are unlikely with the durable, well designed and quality manufactured Mini Myna Magnet.

Did you know … Indian Mynas are a member of the Starling family? They we released in Australia in the 1840’s and now inhabit Australia’s East Coast moving westward into rural areas. Their population increase prompted the IUCN Species Survival Commission to declare it one of the world's most invasive species and one of only three birds in the top 100 species that pose an impact to biodiversity.
