Thanks Baldwin hedgehog and Nic for your advice. I have been putting out wet cat food(chicken) and cat biscuits, maybe I will just try the biscuits instead. I haven’t used mealworms as I did read about the devastating effects of metabolic bone disease, thanks for posting the video Nic.
I have tried gravel but these are super slugs and gravel doesn’t seem to stop them. I will continue to try and feed the hogs despite the slug invasion, I saw a baby hedgehog for the first time in my life a couple of months ago. Truly magical!
