We manufacture housing specific to leafcutter ants and our range is built around a highly aesthetic cylindrical design. Keeping leafcutter ants allows you to witness a superorganism at work and because of this we created a design which allows 100% undisturbed viewing of a colony at work.
The GroPodsTMprovide a large nesting capacity for leafcutter ants. Fungus gardens grow fairly fast and thus this needs to be accommodated for. We offer our latest Series IV GroPodsTMwhich individually measure 250mm x 250mm, with a volumetric capacity of almost 8 litres! The GroPodsTMSystem is totally modular, and this means that you can expand your system very easily. Our crystal-clear system relies upon straightforward friction fit connectors and additional modules can be added as required.
This is the ULTIMATE housing solution for Leaf Cutter Ants, combining a highly practical design, with a beautiful view of your ants.
The HydroThermo™ System
Our heating system is the first of its kind, simultaneously providing heat and humidity directly into the heart of the nest. This special design allows warm humid air to pass into the GroPods™ whilst preventing ants from gaining access to the heating system. This heating system requires little maintenance, simply add water and you are ready to begin heating your GroPods™.
