The Haze is getting worse each day. Some areas reaching more 250 API (Air Pollution Index). Schools were ordered to close. People are complaining, sore throat, running nose,teary eyes,etc that caused by the haze. Aren't human stronger than birds? If human is badly affect what about Swiftlets which are smaller mammals.?
If the Haze could cause sickness to human then it would be many times the effect on animals.
There are less Swiftlets roaming the sky now. Swiftlets rely on their sight to hunt insects. This is one of the most important factors of survival. The Haze affect the Swiftlets visibility in hunting. Most if not all would have migrated to areas that has no Haze.
That is why population of Swiftlets as whole in decreasing in areas that are affected by the Haze. Swiftlets are abandoning their homes ( Swiftlet farms). This is not new, it had happened before. One good example was during the 80's. Where the outbreak of forest fire ( Crop clearing fire) in Indonesia affected thousands of Swiftlet farms in Indonesia. During that time, huge migration of Swiftlet started. They fly to Parit Buntar, Penang, Matang, to name few. This is how the Swiftlet farming industry in Malaysia went to full swing, benefiting from the effect of haze in Indonesia.
It was a good time then, birds were more than Swiftlet farms. A simply built Swiftlet farm could easily attract few thousand birds to stay. Swiftlet farms were mushrooming everywhere. Raw nests was selling above Rm 5000.00 per kg at one time. Those were the days of great Swiftlet farming.
Swiftlet visibility is affected, their food sources are depleting. With the serious smoke around it may kills all insects. Insects are invertebrates. They fear smoke. Any small amount of smoke would chase them away. With such hazy condition they don't reproduce. Some go into hibernation and don't reproduce. So there will be less and less insects around for the Swiftlets to feed on.
As it goes they will migrate to areas that have more food sources ( Insects). You would see less Swiftlets coming back to Swiftlet farms now.
For those Swiftlet farms that are located in areas that are less affected by the Haze should make all effort to make use of the golden opportunity.
Make sure your Swiftlets are every ready to attract these groups of migration Swiftlets. There is a saying " Golden opportunity doesn't come easily". So don't lose this opportunity.
During the migration some Swiftlet farms located in areas that are less effected by haze would experience sudden increase in nests ( double, triple) which many don't seem to realize and unable to explain.
Well how do you make use of this opportunity? There are many ways to do it.....tips....change new sound, use good aroma to attract birds to stay ( Love Potion)...and .......more
Not the normal external sound. A special migration external sound that features Swiftlets flocking together. A sound specially made for this purpose to attracts these migrating Swiftlets. This special sound attracts and guides Swiftlets to fly into the entrance hole when the fly past your farms.
If you are interested in this SMES ( Special Migration External Sound ) you may contact me.
So be prepared don't lose this opportunity. This is the opportunity that may increase your Swiftlet farm's population.
Good Swiftlet farming All.
