Hi Vs,
I would be very wary of using any pet pesticides around hedgehogs and certainly wouldn’t use them outdoors where they could prove very toxic to a whole range of wildlife. They are intended for indoor use only.
A small number of ticks on a healthy hog will do no harm. The BHPS have an interesting downloadable page about ticks on their site.
