Top tips for living with these noisy neighbours

  • Bring your washing in at night
  • Park your cars under shelter
  • Keep doors and windows closed at dawn and dusk to reduce impacts during fly-in and fly-out
  • Double glaze windows and insulate your house to minimise the noise experience
  • Remove or cover fruit and flowers on fruiting and flowering trees on your property
  • Keep dogs and cats inside at night and away from roost sites. Keep their food and water indoor
  • Move quietly near roost sites to avoid disturbance, they make more noise when disturbed.

Council understands how difficult it can be living near flying-fox roosts in urban areas, and we have a long term aim to entice flying-foxes to a more suitable home. We conduct research to better understand how they choose their roost sites and are rehabilitating more appropriate reserves with trees they like to live in and food they like to eat. 

Never touch a sick or injured flying-fox
