Hi Yvonne

Sorry to hear no hogs again. The rat here is still around, but mostly not eating the hog food, except if there are any ‘crumbs’ left in the morning. I started putting the food out much later because it seemed to come earlier in the evening. I have also had to stop feeding the birds, though. I’m hoping if it doesn’t find any food it will go elsewhere. But one night (before I had worked out this plan) it actually jumped at a hogs face. I think some of the hogs were scared of it, but not all.

I can quite understand that you don’t want rats around, especially with children around. I think if I were you I would stop putting food out for the hogs (so that there’s no food around for the rats at all) for a while at least, until the rats disappear.

Good luck.
