Hi Nic

Thank you so much for your reply, we initially thought that we had a rat in the garage as there was evidence that something was coming into the garage. On the night we set some humane traps, we went outside to find a hedgehog rolled up, as we have a partly walled garden, we put it back in the garden. Nothing was caught in the traps the next night. This morning we went to check the trap and a hedgehog was in it, we panicked and managed to free it, as it was in the morning we placed it back in the garage minus the traps and left water and some dog food, the dog food appears to have been eaten and the hedgehog can find its way in and out of the garage. Our garden has lots of hedge and wooden sleepers and wildlife areas and banks. I will take all your advice on board. Many Thanks
