Kepala Batas BH: How To Keep Those Crows Away !!!


If you observe this video clip carefully you can see a black bird on the top of Hexagonal tweeter,

This black bird was a crow.

The moment they observed lots of swiftlet playing around the rooftop areas they will stand at those locations where they can plug the birds.

I was having a kind of nightmare on how to prevent them to hang around the BH.

The only method that came to my mind was to apply those rat glues above the hexagonal and the rest of the areas where they might perched to snap my swiftlet.

So who is going to climb up onto the roof?

The only solution was to bring my worker who is not scared of height.



He came and I provided a few tins of rat glue.

He went up and applied to my desire.

Look at this clip:




Now I can see that the chances of having crows on the top of the monkey house is slim.

Trying Out The Use Of black Cloth As Wall Materials !!!

Side wall to block those light

Look at the materials used as a wall in Kepala Batas BH.

I have experimented on the use of black cloth as the walls.

The cloth will reduce any light and at the same time soft and will not injure the BH tenants in the event they hit the wall.

Kepala Batas BH: Testing The BTB

I have been informed and observed this powerful method on how to lure your neighbor's birds into your BH.

Please study this article:

http://swiftletfarming.blogspot.my/2016/04/btb-something-that-is-worth-to-explore.html

Last week decided to test the phenomena in Kepala Batas BH.

The entrance hole was reduced to only one and at the same time the main entrance hole was reduce to only about 1.5' by 1.5'.

While the LMB was reduced in size the floors were modified by additional walls, tweeters and fake nests.

This is more like doing an upgrade to welcome the new year for those swiftlet.

Will report of its progress after a few months into operation.

This was the initial flying in which takes about 4-5 minutes of heavy activities.




This was what happen when the main entrance hole was reduced.






The smaller LMB hole will force those swiftlet to get into a kind of que.

This longer then usual que will generate a kind of sound which can attract other birds that are passing by or from your neighbors.

The que will get longer and longer once the number of birds inside your BH increased.

The longer the que the more will it attract those wild birds.

Need to see its progress after a few months.

Used to be this large size:


The original LMB size


The same hole was reduced to force those birds to que in the evening when they return home to roost.

Reduced in size.
