Hedgehogs are the gardener's friend; they have voracious appetites for many garden pests such as slugs and snails. Supplementing their diet with hedgehog food will not deter them from natural foraging. Hedgehogs ideally need to weigh around 600 grams before going into hibernation and this ensures they have enough reserves of body fat to see them through the long sleep. Smaller Hedgehogs will still try and hibernate but if their body fat is too low they will not survive, so providing a reliable source of hedgehog food every night helps them reach the required weight to hibernate safely. If you also place a hedgehog house in a quiet corner of the garden, you may even be rewarded by one taking up residence and potentially raising a family!
Here at Brinvale we want all animals to have the best they can be given and this includes Hedgehogs. We have developed our Hedgehog food which will keep the hedgehogs going, along with providing hedgehog houses for them to stay settled and safe.
