You Can Rent And Try Using Those Insect Generators !!!
If you are very new in swiftlet farming and wanted to find as many ways as possible to populate your BH, please come forward to try out those insect generating system.
You can either buy at least two sets or rent them for a small fee for at least six months.
Before you try one my sincere advise is to come to Kuala Lumpur and let me show you some interesting installations that I have started and in operations.
It might give a faulty smell a bit but the outcome from installing such thing will be something that you should look at.
One BH owner called me two days ago telling me something that he think was unusual.
His BH is currently with a number of insect generating racks located on the ground floor.
About four months ago he bought some raw nests from a friend and now he harvested his own raw nests.
"Pak Harry something very unusual. The raw nests I harvested from from my BH is nearly twice as big as the one I bought about 4 months ago. Do you think is it because of the insect generating system? Not only they are larger but thicker and heavier."
My answer to him was it might be the reason.
Due to the supply of food his BH residents are larger in size thus the will usually need to have a larger sized nests.
I might want to add here that if your swiftlet are healthy and large in size they will usually produce more saliva.
Their saliva might be thick thus the nests they construct will be larger and thicker too.
Due to their surface area they might hold more water in them.
This led to a heavier weight per nest.
The point here is that he keep his insect generation system in operation.
He monitored the nests progress and he is now a strong believer in insect generating system.
Though his BH was not located at the most ideal location but he feels that the insect generator is the key to get more birds in his area to come over and stay with him rather than his neighbours.
