Hi Mike

Glad to hear the slug population there has been going down. Doesn’t seem to work so well here. A lot of them are the big ones and can sometimes be seen sharing a bowl with the hogs! I think it is mostly the little ones that the hogs eat, but they say those are the ones that do the most damage in the garden, so I suppose that is good.

Hope the hogs don’t eat the frog here – I have only seen one, so none to spare! It seems quite active, so hopefully will hop away in time.

You might need to introduce some other hog food gradually mixed in with the mealworms, if they have got used to them. I get ‘I Love Hedgehogs’ food by mail order, when I get bird food. Most cats aren’t interested in it, although there is the occasional one. There are some other hog foods which are supposed to be less interesting to cats as well.

Re. the photo. Unfortunately, I don’t have a website. I wondered if it was something like that. I tried before and couldn’t seem to get a photo on just from the computer, which is a shame.
