Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Friday night is Hog party night Reply To: Friday night is Hog party night


So, we had a feeling of disappointment on Friday night, as Helga went out but did not return.

But then we realised this was the perfect opportunity to clean out the hut !

We were amazed at how clean it was inside. There was some poo in the entranceway, all in the same spot. So I’m guessing that’s her marking her territory. We took all the hay out, saw possibly one flea, no ticks. Used boiling water to clean the hut and let it dry in the sun. Put fresh hay in, added some of the old hay which had been out all day to ensure any bugs left, and to re-introduce her scent. Put a pile of the old hay nearby, and some fresh. Then set the cameras up and hoped for the best.

And about 11pm, she came back. There was a lot of sniffing but I guess that’s to be expected, then at 5am this morning she went back into the hut

Helga returns
