    I see there has previously been discussion about anti-Bacterial Marcide Coating but I can not see the outcome of the discussion. The BHPS where looking into this, can we have an update please as I am looking at making some hedgehog houses and would like to know more about this stuff. Or if there is a particular type of paint that can be used safely to help preserve the wood. What is the best type of wood to use from a cost and quality point of view?


    I never got an answer from the BHPS who had contacted the manufacturer of the product.
    From what I have read it is best to use untreated wood for houses.
    They won’t last forever but at least are doing no harm to hedgehogs.
    We have ours on a large patio stone in the garden so it doesn’t sit directly on the earth. The house also has a wooden floor.
    Sorry can’t help anymore than that
