Effective and Fast Mold Removal Method

Finally, my BH nesting wood planks are free of mold and looks as good it is new. What I did was, by using a homemade vinegar plus a secret recipe, I applied them by spraying onto the planks and let it soak for 15 minutes. After that just wipe it dry and then I covered up all the ventilation holes in order to bake all the nesting wood planks with an external preprepared burning amber charcoal. The burning charcoal was placed on a sheet of zinc on the floor and then covered up by another sheet of zinc. After 4 hours, removed all the charcoal opened up all the ventilation holes and put a fan inside to speed up ventilation. My wood planks now look totally clear from mold and looks brand new.

My new BH nesting planks are infested with mold due to misprogramming of the two mistmaking machine

Failure is the road to success, I guess..... From the initial 50s birds entering my BH, now reduced to 10s due to the moldy nesting wood planks condition. I am going to get rid of the mold a.s.a.p....... using a special mixture of vinegar. Will update when result is positive.

Best swiftlet sound, top swiftlet sound, external swiftlet sound

I have invented a very good swiftlet sound which comes in a package of 3 sound..

The sound is made using the latest 3D stereo technology, and will give the visitor birds an impression that a lot of birds are flying and nesting inside the house. For example, if you stand near and in front of the BH entrance hole and with your eyes closed, you can actually hear swiftlets flying from left to right, right to left and encircling you.

The sound will create a kind of curiousity to the swiftlets and attract hundreds or thousands of birds to gather high up in the sky above your birdhouse, (Note: Contained No Duress Sound Inside!). The sound will slowly attract them to descend lower and lower and then they will circle the tweeter chasing each other happily and slowly those braver swiftlets will start to kiss the tweeter and even hang on it for 10 to 15 seconds. After about 20 mins, the sound's job of advertising to the swiftlets that a very attractive birdhouse is here and at the same time it will attract the bird to continue to play in front of the entrance hole's tweeters and slowly lure them to fly in.

The result of using this at my new stand alone BH in RAUB, PAHANG, 1st night 40s bird stayed (Not yet put bird shits due to a so call 'nato' friend and not yet fixed internal tweeter connection, so no internal sound), 2nd night 50s stayed (applied mutiara aroma but still without bird shits), 3rd night 60s stayed and now I am hoping this event will continue until the BH is full. . . .. This set of sounds required a good timing and a good sound technical knowledge to produce such kind of result. My friends (Existing BH owners) came on the 3rd day to observe my BH around 6.30 pm till 8.00 pm, he can't believe what he saw, he said your 3 day old BH is better than my 3 year old BH. Another said, my BH performance is beautiful until like c#b#i !!! in cantonese. ha ha ha.

This sound I named it   BHotel  CallingAFornia (you can check in anytime you like but you can never leave).

The video of its performance, hopefully, will be available from Pak Harry's blogs very soon.

Happy swiftlet farming.

anti-gecko or anti-lizard suggestions

To all swiftlets landlords and future landlords,

I have been in the pest control industry for some years previously and will soon join the amazing swiftlet farming. I hope you will find these suggestions helpful to your swiftlet BH in terms of gecko or lizard prevention or problem. I have read that they might gulp down swiftlet eggs and even young chicks.

If you are already operating, try getting rid of them manually first. If you haven't invited swiftlets to be your tenants, you can try the following to discourage geckos from occupying inside before you implement one of my suggestions.

I know that gecko is quite sensitive to insecticide from the pyrethroid family (a.i. e.g., deltamethrin, cypermethrin, most household mosquitoes repellent spray containing them) but I am not very sure whether birds would be affected by it. There are also health care and agriculture grades available in the market. Normally, the health care grade pesticide is more durable. So, try not to do it if inside your BH already got birds.

First:
Teflon (non stick) coatings. Applied teflon coatings onto a portion of the building wall perimeter at the height  above the door, may be at 6 inches wide. Or you might even applied to customized aluminium or fibreglass sheet first and the fastened them to the wall later. For further info, check out  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polytetrafluoroethylene & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gecko


Second:
Custom made a device to contain water and with attached roof (to prevent rain from causing the detergent container to overflow) and continuously wrapping it around the perimeter of the building at the desired height. Fill it with diluted detergent. The detergent will cause the gecko to loose its weak Van Der Waals sticking forces. It will either drop back into the container or THE GROUND. Please experiment it yourself before you really implement the suggestion. Find a plastic bucket, add diluted detergent about half an inch deep, catch a live house lizard or gecko and gently put it into the bucket. Please try not to drown the gecko.
