Sometime people tend to be carried away with swiftlet farming.

This happened in Kuantan Pahang recently.

Converting an expensive bungalow into swiftlet farming is one of them:

Looking for answers: Residents protesting in front of the bungalow which had been converted into a swiftlet farm in Lorong Seri Kemunting 22, Kuantan.

KUANTAN: At a glance, a posh three-storey bungalow in Lorong Seri Kemunting 22 here seems to be the home of a wealthy family.
Its “residents”, however, are swiftlets. And the angry neighbourhood wants some answers.
Resident T. Separamaniam, 65, said he had lodged numerous complaints with the Kuantan Municipal Council, but to date, MPK had yet to respond.

“This bungalow had been turned into a ‘swiftlet farm’ about a year ago.
“Since then, the noise emitted from it to attract swiftlets has been a constant annoyance to us,” he said after staging a protest in front of the bungalow with his neighbours.
Separamaniam, who has been living in the neighbourhood for more than 20 years, said bird droppings were also a problem.
Another resident Teoh Yew Peng, 30, said another house in the area had also been converted into a “swiftlet farm”.
“In fact, the row of shophouses behind our homes are all swiftlet farms.
“They have been in operation for six to seven years,” he said, adding that the noise was a distraction to students at a school nearby.
Kuantan PKR service centre executive director Sim Chon Siang said: “I will contact MPK to find out whether this ‘conversion’ is legal.”
