Two Set Of Containerised BHs In The Making !!!

There are two firmed orders, one in Taiping and one in Guar Chempedak, for my research works in the conversion of containerised BHs.

I planned to conduct the following tests/researches on Containarised BHs:

1) The use of cellulose heat insulation techniques on the walls of the cabin enclosed with a layer of heat shield and a cemboard.

2) The top layer will be mainly used as the roving areas while the bottom cabin is where the birds should be nesting.

3) There will be two types of entrance holes. One will be towards the front and the other towards the side of a dog kennel extension above the top cabins.

4) The openings on the top cabins inside the dog kennel shall be located at the right hand side to minimise the light entry into the cabin plus allowing the birds to have a smooth flying path.

5) At the front section of the top most cabins there will be a wall to prevent those lights from the entry hole comtaminating the nesting areas.

6) There will be an "LAL" immediately after the partition wall, about 3 feet by 4 feet, to draw those birds to the lower cabins.

7) The lowest cabin will have one VIP room that will be the most attractive admosphere with those internal sound (loudest), lots of tweeters, double stacked nesting planks, fake nests, aromas and etc.

8) There will be a number of soundless humidifiers on both floors but more will be in the VIP room.

9) I think the use of hexagonal tweeter will help in drawing those birds to the cabins.

10) I am going to use a minimum of three amplifiers to operate the internal and external sounds.

11) The data room shall be constructed below the cabins. (the cabin will be mounted on 8 feet cement blocks)

12) To prevent direct sunlight onto the external surface of the cabin, a suitable heat resistant paint shall be used and perhaps a plastic mesh will cover the cabin.

13) I planned to open two entrance holes. One facing the direction of the flight path home and one the opposite. I wanted to proof my point that the one facing the flight hole will increase the nest population at a much faster rate.

14) There will be a minimum of 8 containers filled with fresh birdshit droppings in the house.

Hope the tests based on the above will give lots of positive results.

Need to scrutinize the total cost. My estimated price to have this cabin's BHs shall be below 100K perhaps 80K to 60K.

If this materialised then I would say that this will be the best option to those who have a piece of land at the back of their Kampung house to start one.

Those who have bigger pieces of land, using this technique will help in testing the viability. If there is no birds moving in we can move the cabin to another location by dismentaling the unit piece by piece.
