BIR002: Trapping of Pest Birds

The aim of trapping is to reduce bird numbers in order to minimise the damage done to crops etc. However the process is often labour intensive, opportunistic and may have limited value in bird control. After trapping, pest birds are humanely killed.

This standard operating procedure (SOP) is a guide only; it does not replace or override the legislation that applies in the relevent state or territory jurisdiction. The SOP should only be used subject to the applicable legal requirements (including OH&S) operating in the relevent jurisdication.
