Corner Covers Can Be Easily Attack By Fungus !!!
I was invited by one of my blog reader to have a look at two of his BHs is Tanjung Malim recently.
During my short trip I observed something that is interesting to report.
While looking for some clues on why this BH population stop from multiplying I discovered a few white colored corner covers which I think were located just above the chicken coop humidifier.
I am dead sure that those white colored things were due to wood fungus.
When those wood were wet, due to water from the conventional humidifier, they will become a breeding ground for those fungus.
When things get very serious, these fungus will fill the nesting room air with their spores (seed).
Swiftlet seem to dislike these spores since they will contaminate the nests.
My advise is to remove these contaminated corners and perhaps change the chicken coop humidifier to those soundless humidifiers.
Just be careful when using water in the BH. Make sure they are operated properly and do minimum damage to the BH.
