An average internal farm's temperature of 27-31 C would be good and favored by Swiftlet. Of cos there are farms that have higher temperature reading and yet have plenty of nests, to do this you need to know how to manipulate with the RH.
There are many ways that we could do to reduce heat and making the temperature to a desirable level in our farms. Some of the ways are putting aluminium bubble foil on roof, thick wall,etc.
But before we do all those things we need to know the precise temperature in the farms first.
As I had mentioned before the temperature of the ceiling & floor are always different. So how do we get the temperature reading of the the ceiling and areas that are hard for us to reach? Do we place Hygrometer at the ceiling areas? If yes then we would need lots of Hygrometers.
To solve all these, I recommend a tool call Infra Temperature sensor.
It is very handy and portable .You can bring it anywhere you want in your farm. The readings in digital.
It has the laser beam to detect the temperature. Just point the laser beam at the preferred area in second you will get the reading. The distance of reading easily 5 meters.
Even on area that are hard to reach , just point the beam there you will get the reading. With this sensor for sure you would discover many different temperature readings in your farm.
With the Temperature information then you could decide who to do with your farm.
This would help you to solve one of the most important factors of the Micro environment.
