Hi rossyb

I’m not familiar with bait boxes, but am pretty sure that if an adult rat can get into it then hoglets would be able to too. This time of year, it is quite likely that there are hoglets around. Even some adult hogs can get through surprisingly small holes.

I would try some of the deterrants mentioned previously under this title, or maybe try different food – some rats aren’t keen on cat food.
