The New BioPod Plus Grub Composting System
After nine years of in-depth development, The BioPod Plus is a highly advanced compost bin that utilizes native grubs to speed up the bioconversion process. The BioPod Plus provides a unique composting experience that recovers valuable proteins and lipids for domesticated animals and wildlife. Unlike traditional composting that slowly breaks down food and yard waste to create soil for yards, grub composting is a rapid process that produces nutritious feed for chickens, fish and songbirds. Updated features of BioPod Plus include a built-in drainage system, a convenient one-hand access lid, and an integrated collection bucket that allow for auto-harvesting to take place—without the typical sights and smells of a manual compost bin. The unit is also weather resistant to protect contents from rain, while the roto-molded design with rounded safety edges ensures durability and longevity.
About the BioPod Plus:
-Hinges provide a means to easily open the main lid using front handle.
-Pair of angled, 40° migration ramps allow for natural migration of grubs.
-Covered harvest bucket auto-collects grubs for simple, no-hassle separation.
-Convenience lid easily pivots, allowing for quick one handed dumping of food scraps, while shielding top ventilation portal - critical for aeration and egg laying.
-Heavy duty, weather-resistant construction insures long life span, protection of colony from the elements and multi-year use.
-Improved ventilation: Fresh air enters through bucket slit, passively flowing through entry chute in bucket, which leads to the harvest slot in body and exits at convenience lid - continually maintaining aerobic conditions.
-Compact design is ideal for shade gardens and patios - compatible with rural, suburban and urban settings.
-Passive drainage of liquids for compost tea occurs through permeable drainage plate, allowing liquids to flow into collection area.
-Faux stone appearance blends in naturally with landscaping.
