Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Hogs v Rats Reply To: Hogs v Rats


A bit of an update. I followed advice on here and took to scattering food in 3 places round the garden, rather than using the dish in my feeding station. This has definitely helped and I very rarely see a rat now.

We could here mating noises while we were sat out last night, so with a bit of luck, I might get some hoglets, just hope it isn’t too late in the year, it’s September this week. I’ll have to keep an eye on them. It looks like ‘something’ has moved into the new hedgehog house I left out a few months ago, just hoping that isn’t where all the rats have gone!!
