Swiftlet Garden: There Will Be A Lot Of Figs Trees Around This Complex !!!

Just communicated with the Swiftlet Garden Eco park owner about two figs trees that I brought along with me for his project.

What I can see was his positive response to my idea of setting up a long term plan to bring more swiftlet to his 49 units BHs complex.

Beside the two plants I planned to air layer about 15-20 more and within two months they will be ready to be transplanted onto the complex gound.

Immediately after these figs trees starts to bare fruits you will see the coming of a new type of insects to help the figs tree to pollinate its flower that are found inside the fruits.

These insects (Figs Warps or FW) will lay their eggs inside those specially created pouches inside and grow into a fully grown FW.

Upon maturing they will mate and carry out their responsibilities to pollinate the flowers manually.

The FW will collect the pollen and transfer them to those stigma of the flowers.

Upon doing this probably service to the tree, they will start to find their passage out of the fruit via a small hole that is borrowed by the male warp.

Once out of the fruit they will start to fly around the trees to find any new fruit that need to be pollinated.

During their flying to search for new fruits they will be exposed to the high wind and if they are not lucky they will be swept upward into the air.

This is where they will turn into special food for those flying birds especially swiftlet.

The Figs tree specie that I am asking the owner to plant around the complex will be the type that will bare fruits at their branches and not only on the main trunk.

When these fruits are all over the tree branches you will create more figs warps around the tree canopy.

This will attract more swiftlet to come closer to harvest these naturally generated insect.

With the figs trees the supply of insects will be continuous and there will be lesser human intervention as compare to breeding of drasophila using those expensive insect powder or rotting fruits.

Just imagine about 20-50 figs trees around this complex and fruiting all year round.

I am very sure it will turn the complex from Swiftlet Garden to Swiftlet Haven.
