Hi Emma Tulip

It’s lovely to hear your story about the hogs and natural justice that they are in your garden, especially when you have been trying to help hedgehogs in general. I’m really pleased for you and welcome to the Forum. It must have been amazing for your 8 year old to see his first real life hog! I hope you continue to enjoy their visits.

You mention putting water out and It’s a good idea in this really hot and dry weather to leave water out 24 hours a day in case a hog comes out during the day hot and thirsty (but you probably already know that).

DwarfHog. They do eat slugs, just not the really big ones and they don’t come top of the food list. But they say it is the small ones that actually do most damage to plants so that’s O.K.
