Live traps have been used successfully to trap European starlings causing damage to cherry orchards in Washington State since 1960. The most suitable trap is a modified Australian crow trap, and we have acquired such a trap mounted on a trailer, capable of being handled by one man. On several occasions, this trap has rapidly reduced local flock buildup and contributed greatly to crop protection.
