Our great-looking home is a safe retreat for hedgehogs. With its gently-sloping roof and distinctive hedgehog silhouette design carved on the front, it's definitely a ''des-res'' for our spiky friends! It's safe too - the internal entrance is concealed, to help protect them from predators. Although it's cosy for the long winter, there are ventilation holes to aid air flow. The secure roof can be opened for inspection and cleaning.
The box may be used as a nest site from spring until June/July, and as shelter from poor weather and predators until their winter hibernation. They will typically hibernate between November and March dependent on the weather.
This hedgehog home comes with a pre drilled camera hole, making it easier to install a wildlife camera if you have one.
External measurement (including walls and roof): 53 x 40 x 23.5cm. Internal measurement (hedgehog living space): 43 x 34 x 17cm.
Position the Hedgehog home somewhere quiet, out of the prevailing wind. Under shrubs is an ideal place as it will help to ensure the hedgehogs are undisturbed. Cover the shelter with leaves and brushwood to camouflage it and create a cosy den.
Hedgehog houses may be used for winter hibernation, throughout the summer as a safe shelter, or, if you're very lucky, by a female making a nest to have her young.
If you accidentally disturb an active hedgehog nest, carefully replace the material. The hedgehog will soon repair or move the nest elsewhere. If there are young in the nest, avoid touching them. Similarly, if it is a hibernating adult, avoid waking it. Should it wake, you may want to leave it some food nearby until it hibernates again.
