The BioPod Plus is a convenient way to recycle your
kitchen scraps and restaurant leftovers into valuable feed - an excellent choice for your
chickensand 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. Mature grubs auto-separate from the active pile via crawl off ramps and collect in the handled harvest bucket. Advanced drainage system helps maintain aerobic conditions by separating liquid effluent from pod contents. Liquids are easily dispensed from external fittings.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Pair of angled, 40˚ migration ramps allow for natural migration of grubs. Inner edge of almost 2" wide ramps possess a raised lip to guide grubs and optimize auto crawl off. Dual ramps lead to harvest slit at top which overhangs the entry chute of the harvest bucket.
Covered harvest bucket auto-collects grubs for simple, no-hassle separation, while fitting snuggly into pod body. Bucket features: a drip channel that diverts condensation and precipatation away from the contents, a carrying handle to remove unit from body while providing a means of gripping, an air port slot to keep grubs from suffocating, and a top entry chute where the grubs fall through via gravity.
Hinged main lid lid is easy to open using front handle
Inner convenience lid easily pivots, allowing for quick one handed dumping of food scraps, while shielding top ventilation gap created by built-in bump - critical for aeration, female access and egg laying
Heavy duty, weather-resistant, rotomolded construction insures long life span and protection of colony from the elements
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 gap - continually maintaining aerobic conditions
Compact design is ideal for shade gardens and patios - compatible with rural, suburban and urban settings
Advanced drainage of liquids effluent occurs through perforated drainage plate and flexible mesh drainage pad, allowing liquids to flow passively into collection area. Multi-layer drainage system phyically separates active colony from liquid catchment area, allowing liquid to pass through mesh, 0.5 cm holes and exit the rear drainage port.
