Hedgehogs are able to cope perfectly well with these parasites when they are well. It is only when they are ill or under significant stress that the levels of parasites can rise and cause problems.
It is thought that the nematode slug pellets are safe around hogs – there is not enough current research. Personally I would go down the route Nic has suggested as the really only safe solution. It also keeps the wildlife in balance.
Hedgehogs quite often have a ‘sweet tooth’ and so beer may be quite a temptation although if the trap isn’t too deep then it would work
Enjoy your little family
