Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Hedgehogs and slugs Reply To: Hedgehogs and slugs


In the summer, it seemed all the slugs and snails were living in the hedgehog feeding station, absolutely tons of them, and now they have all disappared – completely, also there was a snail in there the other day, the next day, the shell was empty – so someone must have eaten it.

I don’t know if the hedgehogs have been eating them and that’s why they have disappeared, I haven’t noticed them eating the slugs – usually I think the hedgehogs just ignore them .

And I also found out, slugs and snails like dried hedgehog food, but avoid the wet dog food. IHowever, I found a bunch of flies eggs in the wet dog food – so flies like lying their eggs on the wet food it seemed. Just gotta make sure I keep the feeding station clean and remove the poo as it attracts flies. I don’t want the hogs eating fly eggs – not sure if that would lead to fly strike if they ate them?

For now I don’t know where all the slugs and snails have disappeared to – but I’m very pleased they’ve gone.
