The Hogilo is designed to offer hedgehogs a safe and long lasting refuge and has become the choice of the Hedgehog Preservation Society for rehabilitating hogs and for re-releases.
The swivel lid provides easy access inside the Hogilo 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 entrance tunnel is just smaller than 5 inch square. Inside the porch there is a further maze style entry door before the inner sanctuary is reached.
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.
- Clean 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
