BioPod Plus Grub Digester & Composting System
The BioPod Plus is a convenient way to recycle your kitchen scraps and restaurant leftovers into valuable feed - an excellent choice for your fish, bullfrogs, chickens and backyard songbird feeders. Utilizing the juvenile grub of the Black Soldier Fly, these devices are the most efficient way of bio-converting your food scraps into living biomass, without the need to separate the grubs from the active pile. Unlike redworms, mature grubs instinctively auto-separate from the active pile via crawl off ramps and collect in the handled harvest bucket without operator intervention. Advanced drainage system helps maintain aerobic conditions by separating liquid effluent from pod contents. Liquids are easily dispensed from external fittings. 30+ page email also provided with all orders.
ENHANCEMENTS: All pods now feature a top barrier lip that surrounds the entire body. Not only does it virtually eliminate grub escape and provide additional egg laying surfaces for pregnant females, it also helps direct mature grubs into the forward harvest slit, greatly improving crawl-off efficiency.
BULK ORDERS: 45 pods can fit on a single pallet. Please call / email for a shipping quote and bulk pricing for pallet orders.

All our food scraps get used up as food for our chickens. They love the grubs more than any other food we've given them. All because we have this bin which helps turn the food into grubs. The bin works great!

I used to feed my chicks our kitchen scraps, but feeding them insects is so much more natural. They love pecking the live grubs as the exit the biopod and our egg size has increased since we switched.
