Hedgehog houses

Hedgehogs have seen significant declines in recent decades, only around a million hedgehogs remain in the UK today, compared to 2 million in the mid 90's, and 36 million in the 50's. Hedgehog numbers are used as an indicator of the overall state of the environment, so the prognosis isn't good. By adding a hedgehog house in your garden, you will not only provide them with a place to hibernate, but also a home in which to raise little hoglets. To position the hedgehog house, choose a shady and quiet area, ideally under bushes. Don't forget to put out some food for your hedgehogs too!

Hedgehog house FAQs

Do hedgehogs use hedgehog houses?

Hedgehogs will use hedgehog houses as they provide valuable protection, whether they are breeding, hibernating through the winter, or simply sleeping during the day. This is especially important given their recent loss of natural habitat, which has left them vulnerable to the elements and prey.

Where should you put a hedgehog house in your garden?

A hedgehog house should be placed in a peaceful corner of your garden, preferably against a bank, wall, or fence. Make sure the house's entry does not face north or north east, since this will help to keep the cold winter winds at bay.
