Hibernation, typically beginning in November, is an important time for Hedgehogs as they preserve their energy through the colder months. Our Hedgehog House has been designed to provide the utmost protection and insulation during this important time of the year and even incorporates an integrated front “porch” to deter predators. The floor is also left open to encourage natural nesting and foraging. Hedgehog Houses should be sited in a quiet, shady location for example, amongst hedges or shrubbery. For extra protection and insulation, place foliage, stones or other natural, heavy materials on top of the Hedgehog House, to stop predators lifting it up to gain access.
