The Recycled Plastic Hedgehog Feed & Care is designed to offer hedgehogs a safe and long-lasting refuge and has become the British Hedgehog Preservation Society's choice on their online shop for people looking to rehabilitate hogs.
The swivel lid provides easy access inside the Hogilo for cleaning, feeding or tending recovering hedgehogs. An overhanging roof and porch give protection against the rain, and the raised battened feet prevents rot.
The entrance tunnel is just smaller than a 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 give 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.
Remember, hedgehogs are wild creatures; hedgehog houses should be covered over the winter for insulation. We recommend that houses are only checked and maintained annually; early summer is best.

I purchased a Hoglio in August 2023 after realising we had hedgehogs visiting out garden. I ordered the Hoglio which was delivered promptly. I was really pleased with the quality and finish of the product and sited it in the garden bearing in mind the helpful tips that came with it.
But what would the hedgehogs make of it? I am so happy to say that it has been a success and is regularly used by a hedgehog. It's just a joy to watch it collecting leaves and making itself at home.
Thank you for the brilliant product and helpful information you sent with it.
