Dome Hedgehog House (Wildlife World)
The natural, mesh-free Dome shelter offers hedgehogs and other mammals a safe retreat from the many hazards of modern life – including garden strimmers, forks and tools, pets and other predators such as badgers and foxes. A felted waterproof roof covered with a rattan finish gives the Dome a natural appearance.
With an ample 460mm diameter family space it features a sturdy rust-proofed steel frame with a water-resistant roof liner, a predator defence tunnel and an attractive natural material finish.
Natural materials may vary seasonally.
Choose a quiet position out of the prevailing wind in an area with some nearby vegetation cover (areas of the garden with slugs provide a natural food source) Cover with twigs, leaves and brushwood (+50mm thick) for insulation and spread some leaves/short grass inside the box.
Ensure the dome home is covered with dry leaves and brushwood during winter hibernation.
If badgers or boisterous dogs are around, the Dome may be firmly anchored using 2 – 4 tent pegs hooked over the metal frame and driven into the ground.
All wildlife products should be checked annually for damages, loose elements and cleanliness during winter.
