Failed BH: Begun To Put Into Pieces Why This BH Failed!!!

Been looking at a number of BH pictures send via whatsapp.

Hmm at my first glance they don't show much errors however upon closer observations I can safe ly conclude that there are many glaring mistakes that can be easily resolved.

(1st Picture)


If you look at this first picture you will see the following unmistakable flaws:

1) The external walls were left without any cement plaster.  The contractor left the BH before finishing those plaster works.  The cement plaster is important to reduce the amount of heat reaching the internal wall's surfaces.

2) The ventilation holes were made of those flower bricks.  The holes were covered with cement boards.  Based on my many experience these type of ventilation holes will be difficult to cover internally.  If his contractor is not experienced enough his nesting rooms will be very very bright.

3) The monkey house roof was blown away and it was not replaced or corrected.  He need to cover the roof back.

4) There was no hexagonal tweeter above the monkey house.  Without hexagonal tweeter I classified this BH as not properly functioning.

5) I have a very strong feeling that this BH is with a single layered walls and not doubled.  With the current heat spell I think this BH will soon face a very high temperature internally.

6) If you look carefully at the main entrance hole, you see only two external sound tweeters.  On the right side nearly to the top of the window frame while on the left side a bit lower.  To me two is not adequate.  Just too little.

7) The main entrance hole seems to be larger.  The top part was covered with a piece of broken cement board.  I think the main entrance hole is not the right size.

8) The third picture shows the main door connecting the monkey house room and the nesting room.  The wall seems to be wrongly orientated.  The cement board should be place inside and not like exposing the wood structures since it can hurt those birds when they fly in at a high speed.

9) The number of external sound tweeters was only two.  It is like not very keen to pull those birds into the nesting room.

10) You can see how much light entered the nesting room from the monkey house room (picture no 4).  This amount of light is not acceptable.  An additional room should have be constructed to reduce those bright lights.

11) As mentioned in item no 2 I think I was dead right.  The top floor seems to have too many light sources polluting the floor.  Those ventilation holes were not properly covered.  This is one of the common mistakes done by those "Chap Ayam" consultant.  They do not understand what those birds required.

(7th picture)

12) Have a good look at how many tweeters are on the nesting planks?  They are not precisely located and at the same time simply too little.

13) You can also observed that there is no crossing woods.  I think we can easily installed 3 rows of crossed woods.

(9th picture)


14) The above two pictures (8th and 9th) shows me something.  This BH has no humidifier.  Hmm another chap ayam design.  How to maintain the humidity if there is no humidifier.  Maybe those drains are filled up with water.

The above observations are just from those pictures.  I will be inspecting this BH this April 7th 2015 and I am sure I will detect a lot more wrong things that if resolved can bring back those swiftlet.

If you are facing similar problem with your BH just call me and let me tell you how to get your BH back to its original purposes.
