Details

This hedgehog habitat makes an ideal hibernation or nesting box. The design features a pitched roof and a latched inspection chamber at the rear for cleaning (though the box is best left undisturbed). Inside is an integral zig-zag entrance tunnel - the sort hedgehogs prefer!

in Softwood and treated with environmentally safe timber preservative. Size: 470 x 300 x 400mm.

The most important concern when providing habitat for all things wild is situation. Ground boxes such as Hoggy Homes should be placed in a sheltered position, protected from the prevailing conditions.

In effect you are providing a warm, safe void for the hedgehogs to build their nest in and sleep safely over the colder months. These boxes are best placed in an area which is unlikely to be disturbed from autumn through to next spring. And don’t be tempted to have a peek inside over this period, you will be able to see if your box has been occupied on investigation after March.

Hoggy Home

• Put your Hoggy Home in the butt of a hedge, in the bottom of your compost heap or base of your log pile. Alternatively, place your box in a secluded spot in your garden then cover it with leaf litter and possibly the prunings from your shrubs.

• Hibernating creatures need to be warm and dry, so avoid siting the box in either exposed or wet areas of your garden.

• Try to avoid any disturbance of the Hoggy Home during the winter because if animals break hibernation early they may well not make it through.

I received my hog house last Autumn and we have been lucky enough to attract a guest!. We also feed the hedgehog just outside it's front door and leave extra hay out at cold times and it disappears over night with a trail running through the entrance, he must think he's in hoggy heaven!.
