Hedgehogs can struggle to find enough food and water in urban areas, especially during hot and dry weather. Providing a feeding station can help ensure that they have access to the resources they need to survive.
Place the feeding station in a quiet and sheltered area of your garden, away from any potential hazards such as ponds or swimming pools. Make sure that the lid is secure, so that other animals such as cats or foxes cannot get in.
Remember to clean and refill the feeding station regularly, daily if you have regular visitors and provide fresh water daily. You can also supplement the hedgehog’s diet with chopped fruit and vegetables, mealworms, or dried insects. Please DO NOT feed them bread, milk, or any human food that could be harmful to their health.
You can install one of our Hedghog Camera Kits in the Feeding Station or place a Trail Camera outside the station to monitor activity.
