It's not really a question of conceiving. The reason it'd be too old for APH hedgehogs to breed is that as the female gets older, the danger to her life gets greater. It's strongly recommended not to breed a female for the first time after she turns one year old. I have no experience with long eared hedgehogs, but I don't see how the reproduction could be that much different from APHs.

If the female is bugging the male, it might be safest for both to just separate them. She won't get pregnant by accident and possibly die during the birth, and she also won't hurt him if she gets too aggressive.

(No, I am not a breeder, but this all just sounds like a bad idea to me, based on what I've read about breeding on here and from the posts of breeders that are on here.)
