Hedgehog numbers are in decline and they need help. The causes of their decline are multiple; loss of habitat, poisoning from pesticides, some makes of slug pellet and even predation by foxes. Hedgehogs are a unique mammals in the UK and need to be protected. They are also a gardeners friend consuming slugs and snails. Here at Dragonfli we always like to encourage natural pest control using nature where possible, so helping Hedgehogs is important from a conservation point of view and as a natural predator of the gardeners worst pest; slugs!
