Hi Navara

I’m not sure you would be able to deter the badgers and still encourage the hogs. You might find, anyway, that the hogs vote with their feet and give areas where badgers frequent a wide berth. They sometimes do, apparently. In which case, you might have to make do with badgers instead – they are fascinating animals as well.

If there is good and sufficient habitat it would be less of a problem. Badgers and hedgehogs have co-existed for a very long time – before we humans depleted the quantity and quality of suitable habitats for them both. Encouraging others to have wildlife friendly gardens, as well, might help both species.

I came across this which you might find interesting.

Good luck. I hope things work out ok one way or another.
