Hedgehog Igloo arrives at British Bird Food
The Hedgehog Igloo
from Wildlife World is a durable, camouflaged retreat for your garden guests to find shelter and help protect them from predators.
Made from a painted steel frame and covered with wicker wood and moss for added insulation and camouflage, the Igloo
will provide waterproof shelter that is much safer from the modern day garden threats that face Hedgehogs. We don't always realise the effects of our actions on such small animals, but unfortunately many Hedgehogs do not survive our garden environment through things like compost heaps that get forked over, cats, dogs, badgers and even strimmers. Then there is the chemical warfare we reap on them when we spray the weeds or kill slugs with poisonous pellets. Slugs are a favourite food of the Hedgehog, so if you are going to provide a home for the Hedgehogs, try and place it in an area where they can find slugs, they will soon rid your garden of the slimy plant eating monsters, in return you might like to provide some dry leaves and grass for bedding in the Hedgehog house. Or possibly some Hedgehog food for the leaner times and in readiness for the Winter hibernation.
