If you want to put a static camera into a hog box, that is probably o.k. but I wouldn’t use a camera that you take in and out. It might not cause such a problem in relation to insulation and temperature change, but could still disturb a hog.

Once we have given the hogs a house, it is their house. Fine, if we want to help when it’s empty by cleaning it out, but leave them in peace whilst they are in there.

You wouldn’t necessarily see if there were rats or mice in there anyway. If you are really concerned about that, the best thing to do is to use a footprint tunnel and not disturb the box – in any way.

Hog houses are best placed in sheltered places where they won’t be disturbed.
