Garden Life Hedgehog House
Give hedgehogs a helping hand with this charming and practical Hedgehog House from Garden Life. If you love seeing hedgehogs playing in your garden then this is the product for you, especially useful during the colder months when they need to hibernate.
Keep hedgehogs safe and out of harm’s way with this house which features a concealed chamber to protect from foxes, badgers and other potential threats. Another great feature is the green felt roof, not only does this protect them from the elements but it will also be perfectly camouflaged with its natural surroundings.
The ideal place to put your hedgehog house is out of direct sunlight and winds, preferably in a dry area such as under shrubs or behind sheds. These are areas that hedgehogs would naturally choose to take shelter, so this will increase the chances of hedgehogs inhabiting this house.
The hedgehog house is made of durable fir wood and features a pitched roof that helps water runoff. It is also covered with a durable waterproof roofing felt, tacked down so cannot peel off in bad weather, to ensure the product lasts and to keep the hedgehogs safe and comfortable in their new habitat.
The hedgehog house, with its fun hedgehog sticker helps encourage children to be interested in wildlife. Use the included Hedgehog Care Guide to learn more about the species and how to protect and care for them. Knowing information such as to not give them milk as it makes them ill, will help keep your hedgehogs healthy and happy.
The house comes with pre-drilled holes for quick and easy assembly and comes with all the screws needed, along with an instruction manual.
Please note that timber may swell when subjected to changes to temperature and humidity (i.e. moving the hedgehog house from outdoors to indoors).
The wood has been treated with water-based varnish, perfectly safe for hedgehogs, but will need varnishing on the outside once a year. On no account should the hedgehog house be creosoted or treated with non-water-based preservatives or paint as the fumes remain for a long time and can be very harmful.
