Hi Melm,

just seen your question.

My experience would suggest that hogs don’t like feeding stations too close to their houses – and they are very talented at finding food if you put any out in the vicinity. Having said that – there are many examples of hogs sleeping in feeding houses once they’ve had their fill! I think these are stop gaps rather than anything more permanent though – and no hog seems to stay in one place for whole of their life either from studies – they are frequent roamers.
I wouldn’t worry too much about the noise from your house putting them off – but would recommend that if you have sensor lighting in the garden that you try and minimise this – they don’t like that certainly and would be put off by lights continuously picking them out in your garden as they try to move around being unnoticed.
