Introducing the LC Ants HydroThermo Series GroPods™, the world’s first automatic, all-in-one heated and humidified housing solution, designed specifically for leaf cutter ants!
Our brand new, 4th generation GroPods have been completely re-imagined. The industry’s first commercially available heated & humidified system is here! With a staggering 180% larger capacity than our 3rd Generation GroPods, and a whopping 275% larger capacity than alternate imitation products! This means you are able to house an extremely large fungus garden without the need to add on extra modules in a small space of time. The 4th Generation GroPods have been in the design and testing phase for over a year, this means that you will receive a tried & tested product which is guaranteed to be the best housing option ever!
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 next generation, breakthrough heating system is the first of its kind, simultaneously providing heat and humidity directly into the heart of the nest. This special design is unique to us, allowing the passage of warm humid air 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™.
The HT Insert is what makes our product so special, it contains a body of water which is thermostatically heated and causes evaporation of water. The warm humid air passes through the fine slots made in the top of the insert and enters the GroPods. The release of warm humid air forms convection currents inside the GroPod, meaning that the entire nesting space is heated and humidified together.
Maintaining precise environmental conditions has long been a significant barrier in keeping leaf cutter ants. Our revolutionary design removes all the difficulties in maintaining these conditions, and hence makes keeping leaf cutter ants less of a difficulty.
