Last night was at Kota Kemuning, Selangor meeting a BH owner who has the luxury to use the Double concentration Pheromone liquid.
He actually purchased a 5 liter bottles about a few weeks ago and here is his stories.
He owned 4 bird houses. Three in Dungun, Trengganu and one in Jenjarum Selangor.
What and how he applied the aroma is worth to know and follow.
His clearly stated advise are as follows:
"The only way to be successful in swiftlet farming is to work hard and get those birds stays as your tenant. You cannot leave your BH just like that and wait for something to happen."
He got into swiftlet farming sometime ago and after having 4 BHs he simply could not find any person who would help him to populate his houses.
"Harry no one will give their advises but they only know how to pull you down except you. I tried so many things but all did not work. I met so many people who own BHs but not a single person who is generous enough to guide me. I am so glad that I have met you and all your ideas and advises are getting those birds staying inside."
Prior to meeting me he could not get even 10 nests in each BH.
After meeting Pak Harry the nests inside are growing and now about to hit 200 nests.
"Every time I visited my BH I can see the improvements and more and more birds are staying and building their nests. Their favourite spots are on those fake nests that I installed as per your advise."
What this person did was to modify his BH as per my recommendations.
Change the external and internal sounds.
Install a lot of internal sound tweeters.
Install external sound tweeters to pull those birds to the back of each floor.
Install a lot of fake nests.
Apply the magic solution the pheromone every two weeks.
Please take note of this word "every two weeks".
He can see that they simply love the fake nests applied with the pheromone.
His preference is the dual concentration.
The price is reasonable but if every fake nest is occupied it is worth every sen.
His new tasks is to install more fake nests and allow those birds to use the fake nests at least two times.
All he is trying to say is that if your wanted to see result you need to work hard.
He visit all his BHs every two weeks and every visit he will apply the pheromone and install new fake nests.
He will not sit still and do nothing and hope god will send those birds.
He believed in hard work and use the right methods.
The best so far are those that he obtained from Pak Harry.
