We manufacture housing specific to leafcutter ants and our range is built around a highly aesthetic cylindrical design. Keeping leafcutter ants allows you to witness a superorganism at work and because of this we created a design which allows 100% undisturbed viewing of a colony at work.

The AntLab GroPodsprovide a large nesting space for leafcutter ants. We offer our latest Series IV GroPods™ which individually measure 200mm x 250mm, with a volumetric capacity of almost 8 litres! The AntLab GroPods™ System is totally modular, and this means that you can expand your system very easily. Our crystal-clear system relies upon straightforward friction fit connectors and additional modules can be added as required.

This is the ULTIMATE housing solution for Leaf Cutter Ants, combining a highly practical design, with a beautiful view of your ants.

The HydroTherm™ System

Our heating system is the first of its kind, simultaneously providing heat and humidity directly into the heart of the nest. This special design allows warm humid air to pass 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™.


– Solid construction, manufactured with high quality, crystal clear acrylic

– Each GroPod measures 200mm x 250mm, giving you a massive nesting volume

– Removable anti-escape rim for application of anti-escape liquid

– Cylindrical design, allowing equal heat and humidity distribution

– Secondary lid with 0.35mm ventilation holes and a secure fit to prevent ants from escaping

Featuring endless options for expansion using the simple push fit tubing and accessories. All in a stylish and practical design which allows 100% undisturbed viewing of the ants.

    Just bought one of these over Christmas for eldest son. It’s now fully installed and looking great. The ants, which had been in an ordinary formicarum with arena, don’t even know what day it is they are so excited. I had never smelt the fungus before and it’s quite beautiful, like autumn leaves or walking in a wood. This is an ideal environment for leaf cutters now just got to think about how we might handle a nuptial flight.

    Great job guys. Keep up the good work.
