The swallows, a protected species in Thailand, would be lured to the building in Soi Ran where the owner would harvest their nests, police said.
Neighbours complained to the consumer watchdog Damrongtham Centre about the noise at night used to attract the birds and the stench of water coming from the building.
After the investigation, officials left a message on the gate threatening legal action.
A German man who lives next door told Banmuang News that if the problems of noise and smell cannot be sorted out in two months he will be forced to move elsewhere.
