You Need To Carefully Plan When You Install Those Internal Gadgets !!!
Today I was requested to make a short one day trip to Kota Bahru Kelantan to visit a new BH that was put into operation some months ago.
The owner wanted to have my frank opinion about the BH status externally and internally.
In the beginning I thought that this trip will be very simple task and by three or four pm I can have some time to visit a few other places in town.
Upon entering the BH I was very disturbed over how the so called contractor carry out their responsibilities in installing those nesting planks, the heat barrier, the entrance area and so forth.
It was a total nightmare and disaster.
If nothing is done I would guarantee the owner that the BH will be empty for the next 3-4 years or more.
What I don't understand is the way the BH owner took the easy way out to just finish the BH without having any idea the damage that he created.
Try not to blindly finish up your BH if you don't have the faintest idea about what those swiftlet likes and dislikes.
You are doing something that you will regret and eventually cost more to revamp them.
These were the damage that the owner did:
1) Foot marks all over the nesting planks.
2) The wall erected blocking the window were like a hot plate.
3) The entrance area were not carefully blocked.
4) The type of tweeters were totally not the right size and some not the right model.
5) Tweeter's placement were not at the right location.
6) There was no external sound tweeter at the back of the nesting room.
7) The entrance door opening on the rooftop was not constructed with proper materials.
8) There were not a single gadget to attract those swiftlet to stay.
9) The floor were dried like a desert.
10) The amplifiers were totally a mess. Wrong amplifier chosen to play the external sound.
How the hell will you be able to get those birds to enter and stay if nothing proper were done to lure them inside and stay?
I was very disappointed with the developer. Their motive was only to spend as little as possible and make as much profit as possible.
No proper precautions were taken to make these BHs successful.
