The stylish Hogilo has been designed to offer hedgehogs a safe and long lasting refuge. The choice of the Hedgehog Preservation Society for rehabilitating hogs and for re-releases.
The swivel lid provides easy access to inside the Hogilo so for cleaning, feeding or tending recovering hedgehogs. An overhanging roof and porch gives protection against the rain and the raised battened feet prevents rot.
The narrow entrance tunnel is just smaller than 5 inch square, once inside the porch there is a further maze style entry door before the inner sanctuary is reached.
The hogilo is made from recycled agricultural plastic on a plywood skeleton. The screwed construction
techniques gives strength and longevity ensuring the habitat can withstand crushing or strimming.
- The house may be cleaned if unoccupied after winter use. (Late-March to Early April)
- To treat the house for fleas use only organic Pyrethrum powers suitable for birds. Dog and cat treatments are too strong and may kill a hedgehog
Locate the hogilo within cover out of the prevailing wind. Pile leaves or foliage around the house to further camouflage it. Place cut short lengths of dry grass or leaves inside as nesting material
Please remember hedgehogs are wild creatures, hedgehog houses should be covered over the winter, for insulation, and that we always recommend that houses are checked and maintained annually, early summer is best.
