My Final Words To A BH Owner In Seremban !!!!
After two days of literary very hard work, the revamp job at Seremban was over.
This BH seems to have a very peculiar design problems.
The biggest error was the size of the top entry hole. It was so small for those birds to find and enter.
The second was its position. A very awkward position plus the fact that the owner erected a wall around it to prevent thief entering the hole.
My frank opinion to him was to do away with the fencing until such time when the nests in his BH reaches some reasonable numbers, say 100 nests.
The problem with the fencing was that it blocked the flight path of those birds to fly from his neighbours BHs.
The size of the entrance hole was another big issue.
Since the size was fixed I could only instructed my workers to cut open any amount of the zinc roof to make it the largest. Overall he managed to increase the hole size by about 1 square foot.
The VIP room was completed by a contractor engaged by the owner.
The VIP room ceiling were completed with a reasonable of cluster tweeters and OohLaLa sets of tweeters.
I installed a few new ideas to pull those birds from the main door to the VIP room using the highway technique and inside the VIP room a set of four bar tweeters were installed.
An insect barn was activated.
A total of 24 pieces of aluminium fake nests were installed. Each was laced with fermented raw nests.
To make the BH more attractive I created those perfume garden. 20 bottles of specialize aroma were hung on the nesting planks.
The BH humidity now uses two humidifiers controlled by a humidity sensor.
A very interesting job done.
The last thing that I did was to advise the owner on a few relevant points that he must observe:
1) He must not enter his BH too often. It seems that he love to enter his BH on a very frequent basis. Sometime at night. I think this will not help his birds population. I told him to stay away for at least 3 months.
2) He also love to climb to his BH rooftop and watch those birds flying in an out of the entrance hole. However the point where he sat down is too closed to the entrance hole of his BH. I told him to opt for CCTV cameras. His movement during the viewing might scares those birds.
3) He must not change the sounds used after being set. I replaced all his four sounds and used my favourite sounds. The internal the SuperBabyKing, the external Pukau and Super208 plus the OohLaLa.
4) He must not touch the settings of all his amplifiers. They were already set properly to provide the most optimum sound when played.
5) The only time that he can enter the BH is for some important reason like checking the humidifiers for any leaks and to reloading the insect food. It must be done at noon when all those birds are out hunting for food.
These points might be applicable to you too.
Try to set a few rules so that you will have a better chance to improve your BH nest population.
