    Any suggestions please – I have two igloo shaped hedgehog houses with mini tunnels as entrances. Last year no problems – this years; jackdaws; blackbirds and magpies (even one with one leg!) are accessing the station on a daily occurrence and are stealing food. Any suggestions on how to stop this as the hedgehog food is disappearing at a rate.


    Hello i take it your using the hog houses for feeding not for nesting . I have pigeons in daytime getting in my food boxes so i cover the hole with a piece of wood that stops the critters good luck .

    Hi ChrisMc

    The problem is those igloo hog homes are not designed for feeding. Apart from anything else they are not easy to clean and they provide good hiding places for external parasite eggs. You would be better off getting wooden houses if you want to use them for feeding. Then you can clean them out with boiling water from time to time to get rid of parasite eggs. The ones that open from above are easier to deal with, in general.
