Why Install a Hedgehog Highway Fence Sign?

Hedgehog numbers have declined rapidly in the UK over the last fifty years, largely due to a loss of suitable habitat and restricted movement. 

However, a quick and easy way to help prevent further decline in hog numbers is to install a 'Hedgehog Highway' hole in your garden fence. Doing so will greatly help hedgehogs move freely about their natural habitats when out foraging for food and a suitable mate.

These specially designed signs clearly show where a 'Hedgehog Highway' garden fence hole has been created to help ensure it remains a open for hedgehogs to use as they come and go in your garden. 

These signs are part of a national campaign to help see a network of 'Hedgehog Highways' created in which to encourage hedgehog numbers to flourish. 


Did you know?

Hedgehogs travel around one mile every night through our parks and gardens in their quest to find enough food and a suitable mate!

Therefore, by having a 'Hedgehog Highway' hole in your fence or wall you really will be helping hedgehogs to once again thrive in their natural habitats. 


Installation Guidance

Step 1 - Carefully cut a 13cm x 13cm size hole in the bottom of your garden fence. This is the ideal size hole for hedgehog to safely pass through.  

Step 2 - Ensure that the hole created has been sanded down using sand paper to remove any sharp surfaces which could injure a hedgehog.

Step 3 - Install your Hedgehog Highway fence sign above the hole, either using glue, nails or via purchasing one of our fence screw kits which are the correct size for the 4 x pre-drilled holes on the fence sign. 

Note: it's recommended that signs are bought in pairs and installed on either side of the 'Hedgehog Highway' fence hole. This helps to clearly show people on both sides of the fence that the hole needs to be kept clear to allow hedgehogs to freely pass through.  

Step 4 - Sit back and wait for hogs to visit your garden. The best time to see hedgehogs is on a summer night, as they are nocturnal and hibernate from November to March. To help encourage them to visit your garden, you could provide them with a shallow bowl of water and a small amount of cat/dog meat/biscuits, or really treat them by providing them with a hedgehog house to encourage them to actually live in your garden.
