European leading wildlife product and habitat designers, Wildlife World, has introduced a brand new Hedgehog Haus for wild hedgehogs.
Hedgehogs have recently been voted as the UK?s favourite species, even though the number of species has declined from an estimated 36 million in the 1950s to less than a million today. Helping to arrest this decline in hedgehog numbers is Wildlife World?s newest habitat for hedgehogs, the Hedgehog Haus, providing shelter and sanctuary from dangers in the garden.
Although the habitat can be used all year round, the Hedgehog Haus is ideal for the winter period as it will help provide a safe place for the species during the hibernation season.
The hedgehog habitat primarily provides shelter for the species and has been cleverly designed to replicate the shape of a hedgehog. Underneath the textured brushwood finish is a sturdy steel frame which is covered with a waterproof felt lining so hedgehogs will be well protected.
The entrance door is made from FSC timber and painted brown to easily blend in with garden foliage and this forms a short predator defence tunnel which is small enough to deter access by most intruders.
Around the edges of the Hedgehog Haus is decorative rattan work and the house is delivered in a hedgehog decorated gift box. For further security, the Hedgehog Haus can be pegged down using tent pegs or similar which will stop any movement of the house by wildlife. Wildlife World recommends placing the house in a quiet part of the garden and to cover it with leaves and brushwood to make the hedgehogs feel right at home.
Wildlife World also supplies the leading brand of hedgehog food to encourage hedgehogs to visit your garden. The company has a strong commitment to wildlife species and the environment, testing all of its products in-house to ensure that they are sustainable and safe for wildlife to use.
