Thanks for that. I am using this late in the year and a hog that could get into the box I would have been picked up and taken to my local hedghog sanctuary for the winter. I have a complex box a bit like a maze inside and have watched the hogs trying to get in.. and overturning it although I put a brick on it now. If I can find the nest, I put the bait in there with a tile and brick on top. I hate using it as I get wood mice and I like them and it is only when I have a serious infestation that I put it out for the minimum time possible and where I think the rats are rather than near the feeding area. Will have a think if I can place it where the hogs cannot go but, as you say, they are pretty good at climbing.
