The beautiful handcrafted Spike Hedgehog House, part of the RHS Wildlife Collection, is a striking, high-quality hog house with an RHS-inspired natural oak color scheme. Handcrafted in the UK with care, by people with autism and learning disabilities, from sustainably sourced timber this hedgehog house has been made with care and with the Hedghog's wellbeing in mind.

This style of hedgehog box is proudly used by Prickles and Paws Hedgehog Rescue centre, which is a real testament to its design.  The internal walls offer the Hedgehogs different areas to eat and sleep in, this design works extremely well for them.

Place the box in a sheltered, quiet spot, like a garden corner surrounded by undergrowth, that is protected from wind and rain. Outside the entrance, leave dry leaves or straw that hedgehogs can use as bedding inside. The Spike Hog House also has felt on the roof and base for extra waterproofing.  The waterproof roof and raised feet keep the interior dry.

The Spike comes with fixing instructions and some minimal assembly is required, it's really important that these instructions are followed to ensure that the house is safe and secure.

Clean the box in early spring and autumn, after confirming hedgehogs are not hibernating or breeding inside, and avoid disturbing them during hoglet season from May through early September.

Use hot soapy water and make sure that the box is well aired and dried after cleaning. If putting out food, leave it a couple of metres away as hedgehogs don’t tend to eat and sleep in the same place. Hedgehogs prefer specialist hedgehog food or tinned meaty dog or cat food and crushed cat or dog biscuits. 

To prevent disease transmission, remove any uneaten food and wash feeding dishes daily outside with hot, soapy water, rinse thoroughly, and secure the tunnel entrance before use. Avoid feeding hedgehogs bread, milk, or mealworms, as these foods can harm them. Since multiple hedgehogs may visit the feeding area, daily sanitation is essential.

Made in Stoke-on-Trent by Wildlife and Birdcare Nature Recovery Project (CIC) a not for profit organisation that not only help to save the crisis of nature, but are also a licensed training provider for SEN colleges to support young people with autism or additional needs leaving college to secure jobs their future.
