Best Swiftlets House Design - Rumah Walit Part 2

Location : Melaka
GPS Coordintates : Undisclosed

This is another best example of the swiftlets house or rumah walit design that will successfully attract and grow grow your swiftlets population. In a short time you will be harvesting your birdnest and your investment estimate around Rm200k ( not including land cost ) will fully return in 3 years time. The life span of your investment will be almost limitness and you can consider this as your long term FD that pay you monthly around Rm100k if successful.

This bird house size at 24x72 and you can see the holes at the side to act as ventilation for the bird house. An ideal bird house temperature will be around 27c to 29c and humidity around 80 - 90. If you can control these 2 factors well, you already win half of the battle already. If you look clearly at the side, the aluminium or metal sheet around the bird house is for the purpose of keeping pest like lizards, cockcroach and maybe snakes from entering the house that hunt on small swiftlets or their eggs . This will disrupt the birds and they may abandon the nest which is very bad.

The roof aim to reduce the temperature in the bird house. I think the owner did not fully cover the side of the roof to let the air go in and further reduce the heat from the sunlight.

You can see the speaker hanging from the pole emitting sounds that attract the swiftlets to check out the house. The swiftlets will then fly in the open rooftop and roam inside the house. If they like what they see, they may stay and build their nest laying eggs.

The drainage at the side of the house suppose to fill up with water to keep the ants from entering the house. The drawback will be the fear of breeding aedes.
This is the control room of the bird house just situated at the side where the entrance is.

This is the amplifier that control the external speakers. The sound actually have many versions and you can insert the sound thru a memory card and insert into this device.

This one control the internal speakers.

This is the meranti wood planks for the swiftlets to nest on. This visit to this bird house very fruitful as I learn many new things but to be a expert in this area still a long way to go.
