Provide hedgehogs with a cozy shelter in your garden with the Stachelburg hedgehog house from oneConcept. Especially during late autumn or early spring when the food supply is low, your spiky friends will appreciate an additional food supply and can be lured as permanent guests in your garden. More importantly, the house offers a safe refuge for hibernation in late autumn: starting at the end of October, hedgehogs begin building a warm winter nest. The Stachelburg is just right.
The spacious cabin of the oneConcept hedgehog house is completely made of solid wood parts, providing not only plenty of room but a safe haven for the hedgehogs. The entrance area is separated by a partition from the main room. The labyrinthine design keeps curious cats away from the hedgehog house, and also protects against drafts. For easy entry, the entrance is rather large at 13x11cm, and well designed with a bevel for short hedgehog legs.
To protect against wet weather, the roof is covered with bitumen felt: rain and snow run easily off the roof and do not rest directly on the wood of the hedgehog house. The Stachelburg features additional bars that provide 1.5cm of extra distance between the ground and bottom of the house, protecting it from wet soil. For easy cleaning before and after the hibernation period, the roof can be folded upwards on hinges. A clamping closure keeps it securely closed otherwise.
For easy adoption, it is best to put the oneConcept Stachelburg hedgehog house in a sheltered place, such as under a bush in your garden. As a surface, a smooth bottom plate of stone or concrete is recommended. Fill the interior with loose leaves and straw.
Please note that the hedgehog house is a natural product made of wood, and should be finished at regular intervals with an environmentally friendly, non-toxic varnish such as linseed oil.
