Hi Hedgie Lover, there are a lot of people suffer the idiot Bell ringers at all hours of the night and early morning. One suggestion is, if it’s a wired bell, after it comes into the house put a switch in the wiring and switch it off at night. A cheap plastic lamp light switch works a treat. Second suggestion is, get a new wireless bell, you can switch them off at night as well. You just have to program yourself to switch it on in the morning! Still got my 3 hogs, going dark early now, so Big Benny was out at 10pm tonight! That’s two hours early for him. They’ve been having a rave up in the feeding station for the last three nights, all Spike gone every night and biscuit crumbs all over, plus big dollops of you know what left behind. I fear I won’t see the other two females now and think something must have happened to them. Makes me sad as Dinky Minky packed the food in last year till she eventually hibernated and made it through. Kitty, her mum, was very tolerant of her and would feed with her next to her. Not seen either of them since they came out of hibernation. The two little ones my be the offspring of one or the other of them. Will just have to be patient, wait and see. Best wishes.
