How You Can Increase The Fake Nests Occupancy Rate !!!

What is so special about using those fake nests and how many percent of them will be occupied?

The use of fake nests to increase your BH birds population is something that you should consider.

If you lay down your action plan on how to quickly get more birds inside, you cannot ignore the fact that fake nests do helps.

What those fake nests does is to provide a kind of platform onto which those young birds can quickly erect their nests.

Once done the young couple can immediately mate (copulate) and within the next 8 days (plus minus 8 days) the female bird will lay her first egg.

The second egg will be laid usually on the next day or the day after.

The two birds will take turns to incubate the two eggs until the two hatched and it takes about 18-20 days or so.

This young couple upon laying their first egg inside your BH they will in fact become your permanent tenant of yours.

It looks easy in installing those fake nests.

But to me you have to carefully study how to make those fake nests be quickly tenanted.

The first thing you need to do is to find the right type of fake nest.

Once that have been determined you now need to know where these fake nest shall be installed.

Should is be near the monkey house?

Should it be at the VIP rooms?

What about how far should it be installed from the tweeters?

Is it at the internal or external sound tweeters?

Should it be place in the middle or the lower part of high up the plank?

All the above questions must be carefully understood before installing these fake nests.

Remember if you install the fake nests blindly it will be a shear waste of your energy and money.

What about increasing the occupancy rate of these fake nests?

The general rule of the thumb is that if you install 100 pieces only 10-15% will be occupied within one year of its installation.

If you wanted to increase the percentage to 50% and above what do you think is the answer?

Try this simple idea.

Soak the fake nests inside a pail of super pheromone for about a few minutes and dry them up.

The best is to carry out this soaking and drying on the same day when you wanted to install them.

If you do it long ago the smell will be lesser and less effective.

Once dried install each of them closed to those internal sound tweeters, about 1.5 inches to the left of right of the selected tweeters.

Remember the internal sound tweeters and not those external sound playing tweeters !!!

The fake nest should not be too low or to high but about 2.5 inches below the ceiling.

If you wanted to see more occupant I suggest that you use the double concentrated super pheromone liquid.

Carry out these advises carefully and I guarantee you that your BH will have more birds inside.

If you are not sure then what?

All the best to you.
