Full Cup Silicone Fake Nest Recycled !!!

Another set of pictures taken inside one of those BHs that uses soft silicone fake nests to lure more birds to quickly stay inside.

I fully recommend that if you wanted to quickly populate your BH try to install about 100 fake nests at least on every floor of your BH.

If you can try to get 50 of the 180* and 50 of the 90* shape.

Try to install these fake nests inside your VIP rooms.  The best place to install them is those areas that you know the birds will enter and feel safe to start their nest making.

Preferred location will be closed to those internal sound playing tweeters about 1.5 inches away to the left of right.

Once they are in place I would recommend that you spray those "Super Pheromone" on the outside and the inside.

Once those birds are lured inside your VIP room, the first thing they do they will start adopting these fake nest like on the instant basis.

Within the next couple of weeks you will be able to see some of these fake nest will start having a kind of marking on the nest perimeter.

Of your BH is running properly without any disturbances they will quickly lay their eggs.  Once laid they become your permanent tenant until they die.

The rule of the thumb is that if you install 100 about 20-30 percent will be occupied within a few short months.

If you apply those supper pheromone on every trip on all those empty fake nests you might increase the percentage to about 50-60%.

Try this technique and you will see faster result as compared to doing nothing.

Once these nests are occupied and used for about 2 breeding cycle, you need to remove them and move it to a new location.

The best is at another floor or another BH.

The reason being if you install on the same floor the original tenant might find them and reused the fake nest.

I have seen many types of method to quickly populate a new BH and I think the proper use of fake nests is one of the best method.

Remember fake nests are not going to be used for a long time.  The moment you have about 200-300 nests in total, you can totally remove all of them.  This will forced those tenant of yours to build their nests on the nesting planks.

By doing so you will have a complete finished bird nests.

If you need any further questions about fake nests proper usage please let me know.

Pak Harry, you are indeed right on the use of fake nests to populate new BH. I followed your suggestions by reading your blog daily & fake nests do work! God bless you.

Victor, thank you for your sincere comment. I think you are the lucky guy who apply my ideas. These ideas of installing fake nests is nothing new but not many truly understood the effect if properly used. The rule of the thumb is that 20-30% of them will be occupied within a short period of time. Try to install at least 50-100 pieces inside each VIP room. My recommendation is to install not far from those internal sound tweeters (2 inches away).
