An Interesting Way To Set Your External Sounds !!!
This BH owner used to count his tenants from day one.
He told me that the first one to two months only two then it grew to four and then eight and so on.
When he attended my Swiftlet farming seminar about six months ago he started his own method to install those external sound inside his nesting rooms.
After toying with various methods now he has more than 350 birds staying inside.
His method is extra ordinary but he was cock sure it works.
He runs his BH with three amplifiers only.
Two playing external sounds and one playing the internal sound.
However two amplifiers runs on a twenty four hours basis. One the internal sound playing amplifier and the other you can guess what sound.
Yes he runs the second amplifier on external sounds (two different sounds one on the left and the other on the right) for 24 hours.
The third amplifier he runs the same two sounds for 13 hours a day (daytime).
His unique method is the using of two separate sounds one on the left and one on the right playing on a 24 hours basis.
He ran two lines for the two sounds, one to one VIP room and the other inside the other VIP room.
Those sounds on the door frames of the VIP rooms will play the same some played inside.
What happen here is that you can easily separate two different colonies into two separate rooms.
The next important thing that he did was to play both sound on a rotation basis on the main amplifier that operate those tweeters on his rooftop and at the main entrance window.
Those that listen to sound A will enter the BH and enter VIP room one and those that like sound B will enter the other VIP room that plays the same sound.
The internal sound for both VIP rooms are the same.
I think this is a very interesting idea and you can now lure two different colonies into the same entrance hole.
The moment they entered your BH they will stay inside the preferred VIP room.
Very unusual and something new that you might want to try.
If it does not work please don't blame me for giving the idea. However if it works please let me know.
I will be very happy to visit your BH and do more investigation on how to apply this new technique to many other BHs that are not having enough nests.
