Edible Birdnest farming can be considered an ideal, most exciting and a very lucrative business. This venture is suitable for those who live in parts of Cambodia, Southern Thailand, Burma, Malaysia, Vietnam, the Philippine and Indonesia. This blog is dedicated to my findings, crazy ideas, encounters with newbies, comments from friends, local news, pictures relevant to Birdnest plus my personal experiences and knowledge gained in swiftlet farming.
A Video Clip Showing Ara Fig Fruits With Lots Of Insects !!!
Remember the article I wrote recently about the usefullness of ara or fig trees in generating fig's warps or insects?
I have a number of new pictures that were taken using another camera .
The amount of insects generated by this tree can be as high as 100 kg during each fruiting season.
There will be two types of insects.
The first will be those figs warps or insects that breed inside the fruits and once the fruits ripes and falls to the floor there will be another type of insect called fruit flies that will breed on the fallen fruits.
As such you will have a steady number of flying insect around the tree for at least one to two months dueing the fruiting and fruit falling down season.
The only disadvantage is that fig trees can grow very tall and big. You need to ensure that they are not planted too closed to your BH.
Try to have about 100 feet away.
Even if one day they should grow and become too big you need to trim or cut some that are affecting your BH.
If I may say it would be better to have at least two to three Fig's species in your BH compound.
In the event you need any help to make a selection or wanted to visit a place in KL please let me know.

Have a good and productive swiftlet farming day !!!!
