Hi MrPrickles@85

You are lucky that a hog has moved in so quickly! I think if you need to mow the grass, then you’ll have to do it. If a hog has decided to move in to your hog house, it will probably get used to the noise. Just be aware that hogs may only take up residence for short periods of time, unless they decide to hibernate there.

Please be really careful, especially if you have a long patch, that you check carefully round the edges that there isn’t a sleeping hog before using garden equipment. I always check all the edges, not only for hogs but also amphibians, slow worms, etc. (which might be in a wildlife friendly garden), before mowing. Whilst I imagine more injuries are caused by strimmers, mowers can also cause injuries. Better to have a cross hog who may have been gently prodded, than one who has been injured by a mower or strimmer.
