Here in Hawaii, we are privileged to have thousands of native species of plants and animals that have not had any natural predators until man introduced them to the islands. One of the most destructive of these predatory species introduced is the Norway rat, presumed to have been introduced to the Islands on cargo ships decades ago. Since that time, several plant species as well as turtle and ground bird species have declined. The Norway rat has also been blamed for the percentage of reduction in crops produced in Hawaii like pineapples, coffee, and other fruits and vegetables.

Even visitors quickly discover how troublesome this invasive bird species can be as they sit down for a relaxing meal at the café of their choice and helplessly watch as their lunch flies away in the beak of this aggressive and presumptuous bird. But did you realize that Mynah birds are not just pesky, invasive members of the bird family? They are actually a dangerous bird to have living on and around your Hawaii property.
