HOW TO USE LOVE POTION
1) Spray on planks turn Spray nozzle to MIST SPRAY.1-3 burst is good enough for planks especially at the corner boards. / 噴灑在木板上，把噴灑頭鑽成噴霧，按1-3 次就夠了，特別是在壁角板上.
2) Spraying on wall 1-2 ft below nesting planks turn Spray nozzle to sharp spray. Spray zigzag lines as you walk. Let the it drips from the walls. Spray at Roving area, Nesting area, Inter-holes, entrance holes, (80% on walls 20% on Planks) / 噴灑在牆壁上，在木板1-2尺之下，把噴灑頭鑽成噴尖。一直走一直噴。讓它慢慢滴下來。也噴在環繞區，造窩區，互聯洞，入口洞，（80%噴在牆壁，20%噴在木板）
3) Spray after each harvest or after your have entered the farm. 在在每次收穫之後噴或者每一次您進入燕屋農場之後
4) Pour into Humidifier (chicken coop type) 也可以倒入噴霧機 （雞寮性）
5) If you can’t finish 1 bottle for 1 floor it means you have not sprayed enough.1 bottle good for 1400sf 如果您在一層樓用不完一瓶那就是說您噴的不夠。一瓶是足夠1400方尺
6) Shake bottle well before use. 把瓶子搖均勻才用
7)DO NOT MIX WATER (do not dilute) 不必參水 （不可以彫稀）
8)Use once every 3 weeks. 每三的星期用一次

( Latest Video)
( Video taken from my blog)
These are the videos of thousands of bird swarming into the farms. It has got to do with good external and internal sound generated by good Amplifiers and Tweeters that could transmit the correct frequency.
As I have written before without frequency there is no sound. Different mammals, produce different frequencies when they communicate. It has got nothing to do with loudness. If loudness is the answer then all we need to do to attract birds is to increase the volume of our Amplifier. But that doesn't work.
Couple of days ago, a reader called and wanted an Amplifier that could at least support 500 tweeters.
"Sifu James, do you have an Amplifier that could support more than 500 tweeters?"
I was surprised to hear that. After so many years of providing resourceful information on the internet, yet people still don't get it . An Amplifier that could support such a big number of tweeters doesn't mean it is a good Amplifier. In fact I wouldn't want such Amplifier.
We are not here to compete whose Amplifiers could hold more Tweeters. We are here to compete whose Swiftlet farm has more nests. It seems it has strayed from its Swiftlet farming objective.
Good quality sound and big power Amplifier are two different things. Good quality sound means the frequencies generated by an Amplifier are in the hearing capability of Swiftlets ( Khz).
A very loud sound generated by a powerful Amplifier may not transmit the correct frequency. Therefore it is common to see Swiftlet farm with loud external sound but unable to attract many birds.
Most Amplifiers ....I would say 90% is not designed for Swiftlet farming use. They may be branded or packed to look as it is for Swiftlet farm use. In reality they came from the same Karaoke stock which designed and tuned for human use (frequency set for vocal). The only different is the packaging and the exterior looks.
Therefore you could find "Mic inlet and outlet", "MIC volume control", etc.
My friends used to make fun of those who used these Amplifiers. " Look at the bright side" he said,
"In the event if the Swiftlet farm failed you still can turn your Swiftlet farm into a Karaoke lounge".
My customers once asked me. " James, there are so many Tweeters and Amplifiers for Swiftlet farm in the market who do you still come with your own Tweeters and Amplifier?" He was referring the the HI-Nests B-52 Swiftlet frequency Amplifier and the GS18 Tweeter.
My answer was simply. I can't find what I was looking for. Through my years of experience I have tested so many Tweeters and Amplifiers. Non could really score A in my sheet card, therefore I have no choice but to find something that really could lure Swiftlets into farm to stay and to build nests.
Swiftlet farm is all about having all good combinations from sounds equipment use to aroma.
The above answers to " why more people are using HI-Nest Amplifier".
Good Swiftlet farming All!
STILL THE MOST POWERFUL AROMA IN THE SWIFTLET FARMING INDUSTRY.

The person who designed this building should know the limitations, advantages and disadvantages as well as Swiftlet flying behavior. This would enable him to create an environment that is friendly to Swiftlet.
But the 7 feet wide roving defeat the whole purpose. Why a beam is erected 7ft from the wall? Birds need a minimum of 12 ft to have a smooth manuvering. This not a normal random Shop lots where we have to improvise its structure if we were to convert it into a Swiftlet farm. This is a Swiftlet Eco park. It is specially built for Swiftlet farming, why it is built this way? I think you all already have the answer..
The beam shouldn't be there if this is to be a Swiftlet farm. This really hit my head, does this person know what he was designing? Well I am not going to eleborate on that person Swiftlet farming skill. You judge it yourself.
Secondly the entrance hole from far left with a fall of 24 ft right to the 1st floor with a sharp 90 degree turn would be impossible for young birds to negotiate that turn. Unless the width of the roving is more than 12 ft ( minimum) , but as you could see it is only 7 ft. So the problem arise here.
From the observation I knew why this farm was made this way. Because of the narrow roving of 7ft, the distance between the 1st entrance hole and the 2st entrance is very close therefore light could easily penetrates into the nesting area. To avoid this the builder has no choice but to opt for a small 2nd entrance hole so as to reduce the light. Small 2nd entrance hole is not good for Swiftlet farm. He is creating a mess and covering up the mess at the same time. I wonder did he know that? What say you? Definitely he didn't know otherwise he wouldn't have created a 7 ft roving.
So it doesn't solve anything. The catch is " Why want to create a mess at the first place?
To reduce the light further he painted all roving, ceiling,etc black. This really kills the farm. Often people always ask me is it necessary to paint the farm black? My answer is " NO".
Because the farm's design itself has already reduced the light density, which means we already know the exact darkness we wanted with the partitioning and the sizes of the entrance holes prior to building the farm. If black paint is needed, often it is painted at the roving not the nesting areas.
If after the farm had been built then only the whole internal is painted black it shows the person who designed this farm did not anticipated or know the out come of the light density. To him it is more of a guessing game. "Build first if it is too bright then paint black". Building a good Swiftlet farm shouldn't be like this.
Because of this practice now it has been a norm that all Swiftlet farms must paint black. It is very misleading. And it seems many Sifus still encourage people to do the same.
Now you could clearly see the importance of understanding of birds flying pattern. If you don't understand how they fly how could you create an environment that are friendly to their flying patterns?
8 Vent Holes on both end of each wall. Too much movement of air. Sometimes I wonder, is it a Vent hole competition. See whose farms have the most the more the better. Most have perceived the purpose of Vent hole is to cool down the farm. If Vent hole could cool down the farm effectively then why we need double layered bricks wall, double roofing,etc? Just build a single layered wall Swiftlet farm and put as many Vent holes as possible. Perhaps every 2 inches 1 Vent hole. This would save cost and time. In fact most failed farm are associated with plenty of Vent holes.
Too many exit. The birds could access both floors by the staircase and the second entrance hole. It seemed it was designed more for the convenience of people rather than birds. This is an Eco Park they should have known this prior to building. It confused the birds. Light ray came from more than 2 areas. Young birds that are yet to fully develop the echolocation sound would circle both exit until they tire and drop dead. To them these might be the exit.
Structural this building is not created or designed for birds. We just have to accept it this is market economy, this is how it works. It was built because there was a demand.
There are hundred of mistakes here which I can't finish writing. Mr. Y knows what I mean. I explained every each with detail...as he had said "citation". I guess this is the best way to help people to understand.
Now you know why a Swiftlet farm fails? It is more than just location. Kuala Krai...how could it fails? A land with millions birds. As I have said before and I will say it again. The rule of the thumb is...We are here to build a Successful Swiftlet farm not a building. But in reality 90% of the people in Swiftlet farming is building a building.
Since 80% of the farm here is no longer running therefore it is to M.Y advantage if he revamps it now as competition is at its lowest.
So it is not just about location. It is all in a package in order to have a good successful farm. The design, sound system, internal enviroment, Aroma enenhancement etc.
Good Swiftlet farming all.

Cockroaches live in colony as many as few thousands in a single dent. They craw our during the night and find food.
Don't take them likely. You may not see them in your farm it doesn't mean they are not they. You would be surprised few hundreds of them maybe hiding behind the nesting planks.
Cockroach eat Nests and bite baby birds. Few days old baby birds without feathers are their favorite. They can't protect themselves and prone to get attacked.If you see dead baby birds on the floor chances are cockroaches have invaded your farm.
They are silent killers, invade your farm during night when you least expected.

I had visited this Swiftlet farm couple of months ago. It is located in Pahang, in a small town towards Rompin. A 3 storey , 30 x 80 Swiftlet farm stands next to a stream. A beautiful location for Swiftlet farming and that small town is famous for one thing "Bird Nests".
This Swiftlet farm belongs to Mr. T, a Swiftlet farming enthusiast. He designed this Swiftlet farm all by himself. He acquired the so called Swiftlet farming skills from books, forums, local Sifus, blogs ( not my blog),etc. With sheer confidence he engaged a local contractor and built this Swiftlet farm.
That was exactly 3 years ago.
Observing from outside it has too many Ventilation holes. I hope Mr.T knows how to manage and control them. This Swiftlet farm is not doing well. Mr.T had tried many things....... he had tried to revamp it but the result remains the same. The Birds came but they don't stay. There must be something wrong somewhere and he couldn't figure it out.Therefore he decided to call me and ask for my help. It is a big farm, managing the internal environment is a daunting task. The movement of air is too much.
It is not easy but with experience and skill I am confident it can be turned around.
When it comes to security he really knows what he is doing. This farm is thief proof. Double chained locks from inside. After opening the front Steel door there is another wood door. After the wood door there is another Steel door.
One thing really caught my attention was the Control room. It is separated from the entrance of the second door to the Swiftlet farm. A room by itself, grill locked with shackle. I was wondering why it is necessary. Well, this is to prevent the precious Bird Sounds from theft.
Brilliant idea, yes it is not uncommon to have Bird Sounds stolen from Swiftlet farms. I had experienced it before at my Swiftlet farm. Not only they took the nests but the Bird Sounds as well. Surprisingly they left the Amplifiers. They really know what they are doing. #%$@#$##
He opted for a Open Roof type, a 12 x 12 ft opening, then towards the end there is a door type second entrance hole on the left which leads to the Nesting areas. So in other words it is a 90 degree turn to the left. I don't favor this type of design unless the Swiftlet farm is small or a ready-build building where options are limited.
But this is not the case for Mr.T 's Swiflet farm. This is a plan and build Swiftlet farm. He could do what he wants with the design and the measurement. Why limit to a 90 degree turn? It is a big farm there are huge spaces to accommodate whatever design. This design restricts the birds from flying in smoothly.
Making it worse a water tank placed right at the flying path of birds. This would obstruct birds from flying into the farm especially during home coming at dust. A black colored tank imitates an Entrance hole during low light at dust. Young birds may bang on it.
The height of each floor is 18 feet. Is that necessary? My answer is "NO".
I asked Mr.T, "why do you build such a high ceiling?" He replied, " many Sifus say the higher the better and birds like them".
I asked again, "then how are you going to harvest the nests in future? "
He replied, " Oh no problem. I will build a ladder with trolley so that it can be pushed".
"Who teaches you this Mr.T?" I asked.
Mr. T replied, "Oh..those Sifus from forum and internet".
If fact, it is very misleading. It shows those Sifus who taught Mr.T totally have no experience in Swiftlet farming. They have little knowledge about nest harvesting. I could confidently say they had never harvested any nest in a Swiftlet farm that has more than 3000 nests.
They were mere sharing their ideas and thoughts but these ideas and thoughts may not be practical or applicable. A mere theory and idea.
So now Mr. T' Swiftlet farm is practically their guinea pigs.....a place to test their ideas.
If one has gone inside a Swiftlet farm that has more than 3000 nests. He would know how thick the bird's dropping is. Easily 1-2 inches thick...or even more. Then how could one pushes the ladder with trolley or trolley ladder? It will stuck. The rollers won't move. Unless that particular Swiftlet farm has got no bird shit then the rollers could move. If that is the case then one doesn't need a ladder. No nests, No shit.. No need to harvest...so no need trolley ladder.
Secondly, an 18 feet ceiling needs a very high and big trolley ladder. It has to be solidly built otherwise it won't stand. L channel steel of 2 inches at least is needed to make the structure. It has to be solid thus extremely heavy. Therefore it is 100 % not portable. That means it cannot be folded or collapsible. It can't be easily carry around so every floor must have one trolley ladder.
Because it is unfoldable the whole Trolley ladder have to be place inside the farm at all time. It will obstruct the flight of young birds. Young birds that have yet to develop the echolocation will bang on the ladder.
The unfoldable trolley ladder works as a stand for Owls and other predators to reach the nests on the nesting planks.
As the Trolley ladder is kept inside the farm's environment of high humidity and dropping that produces amonia in no time it will corrode.
I wonder has any of the Sifus that came out with this idea has ever thought of these difficulties before encouraging an 18 feet ceiling? Definitely not!
Poor Tweeter formation. As we know young birds build theirs first nests on corners which are closer to the walls. Why people still install Tweeters at the middle. It is not that Tweeters can't be installed at the middle sections or strictly restricted to wall areas but at least the priority should be given to areas near the walls.
He must have learned from somewhere or from someone. Why is this Swiftlet farm not doing well? Simple....because it doesn't accommodate whats Swiftlets want. In fact it goes against what Swiftlets want.
As I have mentioned before, Swiftlets fly in a circular motion. They circle many rounds inside the nesting areas before hanging on the planks. If you observe this you would know where they are going to build their nests.
By understanding Swiftlet behavior it will help you to design and build a good Swiftlet farm. If you don't understand and don't know what is Swiftlet behavior then you can say good bye to Swiftlet farming.
Besides that this Swiftlet farm was designed with the pillars inside. Swiftlet farm shouldn't have pillars inside as Swiftlets could bang on them. Perhaps Mr.T didn't know about this. I have written about the disadvantages of having pillars inside a Swiftlet farm and it should be avoided, but many still repeating the same mistake again and again.
There are two Inter holes in this farm. One is the Inter-hole which made for birds to fly up and down. The other one is the staircase. I don't encourage such design. It confuses the birds and it slows down the adaptation process. If one stands at the ground floor a ray of light can be seen from two places. The staircase and the Inter-hole. Now the birds are confused. They have to make prompt decision on one which to use. Later..... once they flied out they will never return.
These are just a handful of problems....there are many more .
I have pointed out all the necessary things that he needs to do. I taught him how to observe birds' flying patent.
He was surprised. Now he realizes how little he knows about Swiftlet farming.

The sound it produces is similar to the response frequency of swiftlet thus luring more Swiftlets to stay.
Size: 2.5 x 5.5 inches ( 65 x 145 mm).
The copper coil and material inside were made according to my specification. I had requested the manufacture to produce according to what I want. I assure you it is 100% made by Swiftlet farmer for Swiftlet farms.
IF YOU WANT YOUR SWIFTLET FARMS TO HAVE MORE NESTS AND BIRDS USE HI-NESTS QUALITY TWEETER.
GOOD SWIFTLET FARMING ALL!
