This is our new, 2024 version, leaf cutter feeding pod.  This doesn't just work with our setups, it can be used with your own setup. It has two 32mm outer diameter tube connections to connect to your setup. We can also supply blockers for these entrances so you can have a natural vine, or equivalent, hanging into the pod for the ants to use (please read below for information about this) .

This is the second version of this feeding pod and it features a few upgrades versus the original. The first upgrade is that it is slightly larger than the previous version, meaning your colony can be slightly larger before you might need to upgrade it. The second, and best upgrade (in our opinion!) is that it now features three separate areas to add anti-escape fluid or oil onto. This could allow you to leave the lid off and have a vine or equivalent hanging into the pod for the ants to climb down, giving you that extra 'wow' factor with your setup. We have found a single barrier of mineral oil very effective, to a triple barrier can give you the peace of mind needed to leave the lid off.

Additionally, this pod is now dispatched 'flat-pack' with detailed instructions, meaning it can now be shipped worldwide with confidence.

The previous version of this was supplied constructed a glued, which is not necessary anymore. The additional ventilation in the lid and side of the pod means no excess moisture should build up, meaning the gluing to prevent leakage is no longer needed. The instructions should allow you the build the pod in under 45 minutes. This also means, that if you migrate to our larger feeding pod, you can completely dismantle this one and clean it to use as a larger dumping pod (please contact us about gluing before this) or to use for another colony.

Optional 40mm USB fans and Fan mounts can be used to introduce air into the feeding pod and allow condensation management in our fungus pod.

The removable lid featuring mesh is screwed down, and all screws in this pod are screwed into metal, not into the plastic for extra strength, security, and reusability.
