You’re absolutely right, there are mixed messages. I’ll admit I used to feed a lot of mealworms, until I learned otherwise. It makes sense, they eat worms.. so mealworms must be good. When you google ‘feeding hedgehogs’ (or similar) some of the sites say mealworms and peanuts, some don’t, but they specifically say don’t feed bread and milk, and I think they should also explain briefly there why not to feed mealworms.

You might be right, I’ll try different hedgehog food as a first step. They eat some of ‘Spikes’ food, but not enough to call it a success.

I hope so too! We have a new visiting badger which I don’t think helps. God knows where he’s coming from, I’m in a busy urban area.
