Try To Use The Monkey House If Your Top Entry System Is Not Working Well !!!
I have a number of experience working with a number of BH owners whose BH have problem in nests population.
Most have very little idea what can be the reasons why but I strongly feel that there is a simple method that can turn around their BH.
What I feel they could do is to change their entrance hole design.
I have tried this technique at a number of locations and the results are positive.
The idea is to erect a monkey house on your top entry system.
The best is to use those steel structures covered with cladded zinc roof.
Get those contractor who cut and well steel for your gate or house doors to come over to measure your top entry system and ask him to give a quotation.
Get at least two or three steel fabricators to view and submit their quotation.
The height of the monkey house should be about 6 -7 feet high above your current opened areas.
Allocate adequate opening for the birds to enter preferably a window about 3 feet wide by 4 feet high on every side.
Cover two and open two initially.
The one to open as the main entrance hole is the one that face their returning flying path.
Once you have the monkey house erected install the right number of external sound tweeters plus at least one hexagonal tweeter precisely above the main entrance window.
I can safely say that once you change to this new entry system you will have your nests number increase.
What is so special about erecting this monkey house system?
First is the reduction of light polluting your nesting rooms.
The monkey house provide a kind of curtain to block more that 80% of the light that are entering your BH.
Once your nesting room is darker those birds will feel more comfortable and less stress.
One other reason have something to do with the young birds behaviors.
They love to play around the monkey house areas.
Once they are attracted to your external sound played they will start to circle the monkey house and start searching for the main entrance hole to enter.
Upon entering you will see some common behavior where they will start to play inside the monkey house and flying in circle too.
Once they are used to this structure they will find their way inside your BH.
I have used this technique before and they works well and I am sure if you have a similar problem this idea will he of great use to your BH.
Just trust your gut feeling and take this advise and prove me wrong !!!!
