The installation of BH sound system at Kubang Kerian, Kota Bharu, Kelantan was finally completed.
This three stories but with only the top two floors converted to BH was initially DIY by the owner.
Due to some reservation that he has to complete the sound system he SOS for my help.
The BH looks okay but there were a couple of mistakes that I identified for his attention.
One of the biggest issue that I pointed out to the owner was the bright light that were polluting the nesting room.
I advised him on the proper correction measures and he gladly accepted my offer to allow my workers to erect a few walls on the top most floor and the middle floor.
The area that were reflecting those light coming from the entrance holes towards the nesting rooms were painted black.
The next consideration was to guide all the birds that entered or staying in this BH to fly above the LAL (the hole on the floor that allows those swiftlet to fly down to the lower floor). This is more like forcing them to fly on the top of the hole. By doing so there will be a bigger chances that the lower floor will be populated.
After the two new walls being erected the nesting rooms and those walls were painted the nesting rooms now were darker and more hospitable to any swiftlet that enter this BH.
My next concern was the entrance hole of those birds.
The owner claimed that even with one opening the whole house was a bit too bright.
This particular reason will provide lesser chance for those swiftlet to enter the BH.
What I did was to open two more holes that makes the BH having three openings.
The main entrance hole, with lots of tweeters were facing the side with least number of residential houses, and the other two with just a set of tweeters facing 60* towards the sky.
The next most important job to handle was the installation of as many tweeters as I can.
My style for this BH was to create lots of those cluster tweeters at those nesting planks crossings.
A total of about 150 tweeters were used per floor. Nearly 80% were as cluster tweeters.
The rest were for singles, chandeliers, kite and on the door leading those birds into the nesting rooms.
For this particular BH I put lot of personal touch on the installation of about 200 fake nests.
Most of them were made of gel with 90* and 180* shapes mainly inside the VIP rooms.
I also included about 2 dozens of aluminium fake nests.
The sound amplifiers for this BH were four solid state amplifiers. Two for the external and two for internal sounds.
Managed to install a trial insect generating set plus sourced five bags of fresh bird shit for him.
I have decided to deploy my best sound in Kelantan "Super 208" as its external sound and SuperBabyKing as the internal sound.
Tested and proved how those birds were rushing into the monkey house from all the three entrance windows.
After watching the activities created the owner was very satisfied and I handed over the building for him to look after his BH.
"Doc, you need to perhaps apply the Mutiara Aroma for at least three consecutive days before starting the running of this BH. Once that is done lock the entrance door for about three months. I fully guarantees that there will be at least 20-30 bird shit spots. If you are lucky there will be at least 3-5 makings with one or two of about 1/2 " nest size."
I was very happy that the owner honoured my effort and we have a big meal after that.
It was a very happy occasion to see those smiles on the owner's face.
He knows that those birds will enter his BH and it is a matter of time that they will be his tenants.
