Hogilo Hedgehog House

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.

This particular model was show in the BBC wildlife show Autumn Watch, where it provided both a place for hedgehogs to hibernate, as well as a location to discretely observe your garden guests!

What is it made of?

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 powders suitable for birds. Dog and cat treatments are too strong and may kill a hedgehog

Easy Access

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.

Where should I place my Hedgehog House?

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
