Hi. Do you have any data on the antibacterial marcide you use to treat the hedgehog house please? Ideally some kind of risk assessment type data sheet? Thanks Nicky

Most of our products are treated with a water based animal safe preservitive. The Hedgehog House are also treated with the same perservative and is completely safe fopr pets and wild animals. Please find a PDF with a compound breakdown:

Timbertex 7. 1 Concentrate Wood Stain

Where in the garden is it besty to put the Hedgehog House?

We would recomend placeing the Hedgehog House in a secluded area away from any noise from the household or roads, some shelter such as a bush or tree would also be favourable. You could be on the lookout for Hedgehogs in your garden and see if there is already a spot that they concentrate around, this will most likely be a place that is out of the way and quiet.

Would rabbit bedding be suitable for hedgehogs?

We would recommend good quality Hay, Wood Shavings or Eco Nesting which is made from recycled paper.

You could also use dried leafs from your garden.

Hi, I’ve recently purchased the Predator Proof Hedgehog House & Hibernation Shelter – please can you advise me if this has been treated? Thanks very much.

We treat all our outdoor homes with an animal safe water-based preservative.

However, our products take a lot of abuse from the elements and the guest that take up residence; we recommend that once the house is vacated that you clean it and give it a fresh coating of water-based treatment to keep protecting the wood.

I am looking at a hedgehog house but wondering how long the wood will last out in the garden all year round

How long the Hedgehog Houses will last for will depend on several things:

  1. How many guests in a year it has
  2. How long they stay (do they hibernate inside)
  3. Where its sited in the garden
  4. What kind of weather you are getting throughout the year

You should get a good three seasons out of the Hedgehog Houses depending on the usage. Although the more use, it gets, the quicker the ware and tear.

Checking the house regularly or providing the house with some shelter from the elements will prolong the homes life.

We also recommend retreating it with a safe animal treatment every year to protect the wood.

A cat can’t enter your hedgehog box, can it?

We have designed the Delux Hedgehog House and the Shelter Extension Tunnel to deter animals like Cats from entering, and both products have a high success rate, but I’m afraid we can’t guarantee that a cat spends all day determined to get in won’t.

Hi. Is the predator-proof hedgehog house supplied assembled or is it flat packed? Could you also tell me how heavy it is? Thanks.

All our Hedgehog Houses are delivered to the customer wholly assembled; there is no need to assemble any part.

The Deluxe Ventilated Predator Proof Hedgehog House & Hibernation Shelter and The Camouflage Hedgehog Heat Reflecting Hibernation House will need to pull out the extending entrances once sighted in your garden.

What is the green hose on the hedgehog box for?

The green hose on the back of The Deluxe Ventilated Predator Proof Hedgehog House is for air ventilation.

You can have the entire hedgehog house submerged under leaves and foliage and the hose sticking out will provide fresh air all year round.
