“Why Love Potion is to be sprayed on the Wall?” This is what Mr.T from Kedah asks.
He also queries why other Aromas in the market recommended to be sprayed in the air?
“Is there a different?” Mr.T Asked again.
Well, that was a good question. A good question will lead you to a good answer. There are reasons why Love Potion is recommended to be sprayed on walls instead on floor or in the air.
The reasons behind why Love Potion is recommended to be sprayed on the walls especially at the Nesting Area, entrance hole, planks, etc…. because we know and understand what Swiftlets wanted. It’s through our in-depth understanding of bird’s behavior, our years of research and experiment, observation of the breeding cycle, breeding habitats, etc. From here we clearly see and understand what transpired and encouraged birds to fly into new Swiftlet farm thus staying and making the chosen Swiftlets farm as their permanent home to breed. Love Potion was invented and discovered through this process.
Birds do make territorial marking in Farms. They do this to find out whether the farm is safe for them to stay also to indicate to others as well. If you are observant enough you would see Birds dropping at the walls of the roving area. They are splashed on the walls this is done by purpose the more birds stayed in the farm the more dropping splashed on the wall. It is their adaptation process, so the next time they fly in they would know that this is their farms and it is safe to come in.
Often for new farm when the sound is switched on birds would fly in and out for many times this is an adaptation process. If they sensed the farm with too strong of unwanted smells (Cement smell, worker body order, Plank smell, wire and tweeter plastic, etc) they would reject it. Often birds fly 1-2 ft from the wall and 1-2 ft below the nesting planks. You see how close they are to it and if these walls and planks have odors they would sense it easily. That is the biggest problem with new swiftlet farm.
Therefore we have to make the new farms smell like old farms at the same time creating an environment that filed with scent of aroma ( hormone) that trigger the mood of the Birds into mating.
It is more than just putting bags of bird shit in farm. I bet many have done that but still unable to attract birds. Putting more bags of Birds shit in farm won’t help much other than making it stink. What we want is an aroma that can makes the birds to look for mating partners. Once the birds are in mating mood they are ready to make nests. Bear in mind we are here for the nests not for the dropping. Love Potion has this ingredient in it that makes the Birds into mating mood.
If you want your farm to attract lots of birds and want to see nests in a short period of time you should use Love Potion, spray it on the walls at the entrance hole, roving ,etc you would see the different.
Good swiftlet farming all!
