This kit contains all you need to make your garden a haven for hedgehogs and to support this ever popular but declining mammal.
The Hogitat Hedgehog House provides a safe retreat for your garden visitors. It features a sturdy, rust-proofed steel frame, a waterproofed roof with an attractive natural finish, and a predator-proof tunnel. The Hogitat has a natural appearance that will comfortably nestle into any garden environment. Choose a quiet position out of the prevailing wind in an area with some nearby cover (areas of the garden with slugs are great as they will provide a natural food source).
Fitting the Eco Hedgehog Hole Fence Plate over a 13cm by 13cm hole in your fence creates a perfectly-sized doorway for hedgehogs to travel between gardens. The Eco Hedgehog Hole Plate is made from 100% recycled plastic, which is mostly derived from plastic waste from farms across the UK and is UV-stabilised meaning it will not rot or degrade. Research suggests that the reason hedgehogs have declined so dramatically is partly that it is becoming harder for hedgehogs to move freely due to an increase in the number of solid walls and fences being erected around gardens. This reduces the available foraging area and so restricts the amount of food that they can eat as well as reducing the possibility of meeting a mate. Creating a hole in a garden wall or fence will allow your local hedgehogs to pass through from garden to garden safely.
Supplementary feeding is a great way of supporting hedgehogs in your garden and the included, specially designed hedgehog feeding bowl is an easy-clean ceramic bowl that will not tip over. Once your hedgehog visitors have finished their Spike's Meaty Feast, we recommend offering a meat-based dog or cat food, supplemented with occasional unsalted crushed peanuts, sunflower hearts or dried mealworms. As hedgehogs are lactose intolerant, the provision of milk is not advised. Remember that a source of water is also welcome. It is advisable to make the feeding bowl inaccessible to pets, foxes, and crows etc.
The fold-out laminated care guide tells you all you need to know about the hedgehog, including their health, care and feeding, plus information about who you need to call for expert advice if you find a hedgehog that needs help. A percentage of the sales of this product goes towards the British Hedgehog Preservation Society.
