The Hedgehog Retreat from Wildlife World is constructed using a rust proof steel frame covered by a waterproof membrane with an attractive rattan finish.
It features an extended predator baffle to prevent intrusion by unwanted animals, giving hedgehogs a safe place to lie up during warm summer days. Being a daytime sleeping quarters, it’s best placed in a quiet corner of the garden, out of direct sunshine, under a tree or shrub.
By providing a safe retreat for visiting hedgehogs, you reduce the risk of them making home in inappropriate or dangerous places such as compost heaps, near busy roads, or children’s play, or other working areas.
The entrance tunnel is 140mm x 140mm high and wide allowing access for full grown male hedgehogs, as well as females and youngsters.
To get the best from the hedgehog retreat you can cover it with a layer of fallen leaves or bury it within a log pile to provide extra insulation (hot as well as cold) and then you may even be rewarded by a mother making it a nursery home for her young hoglets.
