Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Dead hedgehog Reply To: Dead hedgehog



I’m new to this forum and have a question please. We have several regular visitors to our garden and have been feeding them for several years without any issues. Recently I found two dead hogs within the space of a week and apart from some damage caused by Magpies (post-mortem I think) there was no obvious cause. I’m worried that they might have picked up some bug from the area below our nearby bird feeding station (they were close to it) although it’s never happened before. Is there a safe disinfectant we can use to wash and clean the area?
