To hide and object you can make it "invisible" in the scene.
To do this, double click the object when you want it to first be invisible, then uncheck "visible" under 'Other animated properties'.
Then, when you want it to be visible, open up The Time Track (http://www.anim8or.com/manual/7_scene_editor.html#the_time_track), find the object you want visible, double click the listing of it and check "visible".  It should, at that point, appear in your scene.
